Intended learning outcomes
Language of instruction: English.
Evidence of knowledge of English
Candidates whose native language is not English will be required to produce evidence of proficiency in written and spoken English, such as the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL iBT) with a score of 46-59, the IELTS with a minimum score of 5.5, the GCE O.L or I.G.C.S.E in English language with a passing grade of at least “C”, or any other equivalent internationally recognized examination.
In case evidence of any of the aforementioned qualifications is not provided, the candidate will be expected to pass the College’s English Language Test, (CELT). The College is using the internationally recognized Oxford placement test. If candidates do not succeed in this test they will be classified according to their score in one of the levels of Intensive English Courses, as indicated below, and they will be automatically registered in the Foundation Programme. This can only occur if Students satisfy all other admission requirements.
