English as a Second Language

If English is not your native language, you must show your language proficiency by providing your official results and minimum test score from an approved language proficiency exam.

Please note:

  • If you do not have an English test score or need to improve your English skills, you may qualify for acceptance after completing a full-time English language program at an approved ESL training school.
  • If you have successfully studied for three years in an English speaking country, you do not need to submit ESL test results.
  • If you have studied in English for at least two years at a recognized college or have successfully completed one year of study at a recognized university or a one-year post graduate certificate at a recognized college, you do not need to submit ESL test results.
