  • Those whose native language is not English;
  • Those from countries where English is one of the official languages, but not necessarily the first language of the majority of the population;
  • Those from countries where English is not a native language, although available as a language of instruction at all or some levels of schooling;
  • Those whose transcripts are not in English or are from schools in non-English speaking countries

For the TOEFL, our minimum eligibility score is 96 (a minimum of 5 on the essay section).  

On the IELTS, we require a minimum score of Band 7.
