English Proficiency

AIIAS is an English-speaking institution, and English is the language of instruction of all on-campus and online courses. Because of its international nature, however, AIIAS courses bring together both teachers and students who speak different primary language. Given the nature of graduate work, proficiency in reading, writing, and speaking English is important for a successful student experience. For this reason, all applicants need to demonstrate English proficiency.

English proficiency exams are much like all other proficiency tests, but have some additional regulations. English proficiency can be demonstrated in one of the following ways:

  1. The student’s primary language is English.
  2. The student holds either a baccalaureate degree or a graduate degree in which English was the medium of instruction for the degree conferred.
  3. An acceptable score on a standard test of English proficiency, sent directly from the testing agency. A score of 80 or more is required on the Michigan Test of English Language Proficiency, a score of 550 or higher on the paper version of the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL), or a score of 90-91 on the TOEFL iBT, or a Band score average of at least 6.5 with no single band falling below a score of 6 on the International English Language Testing System (IELTS) Test.
