Regarding Proof of English Proficiency
The recent years’ increase in student mobility has resulted in many of our partner schools being forced to set stricter requirements regarding proof of English proficiency. Instead of a simple certificate issued by our office, many are now requiring that all incoming exchange students show evidence of having completed an English test. For specific requirements pertaining to the partner school(s) that interest you, please refer to the respective facts tables
If a test is required, this should preferably be taken before applying for an exchange spot. If you are unable to take the test before applying; you may opt for taking a test after being assigned an exchange spot.
