Applicants from countries in which the language of instruction is not English must demonstrate an ability to speak, read, write and understand the English language competently. The College requires that the applicant take and satisfactorily pass the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL). A minimum acceptable TOEFL score is 100 on the Internet-based version including Speaking. This test is offered by the Educational Testing Service, Box 899, Princeton, New Jersey 08540, U.S.A. The applicant should have sufficient knowledge of English to understand lectures in English, to participate in seminar discussions and to write examinations. If, upon arrival at the College, a student’s command of English is not found to be adequate, further instruction in English may be required at the student’s own expense. International applicants who complete their undergraduate degree in the US, UK, AU, NZ or CA (excluding Quebec) are not required to take the TOEFL unless specifically requested to do so by the Program Director or Dean of the Graduate School.
International applicants must provide official documents of college/or university transcripts/mark sheets in the language of instruction and in English. If academic records do not include proof of degree award, official documents of the diploma/certificate must also be provided. Official documents bear the original seals, stamps or signatures of the institution officials.
