If English is neither your native language nor the primary language of instruction at your current secondary school, we strongly recommend that you submit an English proficiency exam (TOEFL, IELTS, etc.) as part of your application. While these exams are useful in helping us determine our applicants’ English proficiency, you may feel your fluency will be clear in other aspects of your application. We do not require that you take any standardized tests to demonstrate your English skills. (обн. 3.10.2018)
