English Proficiency Requirements

Full admission to programs where the medium of instruction is English is given only to applicants with a score of at least 500 in the TOEFL examination (paper-based test), 61 in TOEFL (iBT), or Band 5 in IELTS (Academic). Refer to study load of new students.

Students who do not satisfy the above-mentioned minimum English proficiency requirement may begin their studies with conditional admission provided they have a TOEFL score of at least 450, iBT 45 or an IELTS Band 4. During their first semester they will be required to enroll in the Intensive English Program (IEP) offered by the Faculty of Requirements and Academic Counseling, until they obtain at least 500 in the TOEFL, or its equivalent. Refer to study load of new students.

Admitted students with a score below 450 (TOEFL) are required to enroll for an English preparation course (lower level) at the on-campus Continuing Education Centre. Refer to study load of new students. However, the faculties of the University will reserve a seat for them, for one semester only, if they obtain a score of at least 450 in TOEFL, iBT 45, or Band 4 in IELTS, at the end of the first semester of registration.
