ENGLISH LANGUAGE PROFICIENCY

Fluency in written and spoken English is essential for success in a MACMPH Consortium program as well as to help ensure effective communication with members of a health care team. Official results from the TOEFL (or IELTS) examination are required for all students for whom English is a second language (ESL).

A recommended score for the TOEFL IBT is 84. A score of 21 is recommended for the speaking section, 21 for the writing section, 21 for the listening section and 21 for the reading section. Official scores from the Academic IELTS examination will be accepted in substitution for the TOEFL (recommended scores comparable to the TOEFL).

Exceptions will be made for ESL applicants who hold degrees or diplomas from accredited post-secondary institutions in countries where English is the official language and in which English is the language of instruction (e.g. the United States, Canada, England, Ireland, Australia and New Zealand). 

The TOEFL (or IELTS) examination must be taken within two years prior to the start date of the entering class to which an applicant seeks admission.
