Ask Anna


“Is taking an English Language Test necessary for entry into all undergraduate and postgraduate programmes?”


Yes, all students must take an English language test if they wish to apply for undergraduate or postgraduate programmes at foreign universities where the courses are taught in English. In addition, while applying for a student visa for most destinations, it's mandatory to show proof of English language ability.
You must also remember that your success at university will depend on your ability to express yourself well in your class, in written papers and in your examinations.
If your native language is not English, you should take the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) examination or the International English Language Testing System (IELTS) examination (academic modules) in your home country.
