How can I know whether I am English proficient or need to submit additional documentation?

At ALU, the primary language of instruction and collaboration is English. We celebrate many languages and backgrounds, but in order for students to thrive in the system with English as a main language, we require a minimum level of English proficiency of our applicants.

You will be considered to be English proficient if:
You have studied in an English high school system and

1. You have passed the English subject in your national exam, or

2. You have passed the English subject in grade 11 or 12 of high school

You will be be considered to be English proficient if:

You have studied in a non-English high school system and have passed the English subject in your national exam

Should this not be the case and your results have not demonstrated sufficient proof of English proficiency in your application, you will be asked to provide proof of English proficiency, which could be any of the options below.
