AdmissionEnglish Language Proficiency
|ZUMS accepts both the TOEFL and IELTS English language scores. Clearly, only one would be enough. The TOEFL test is the most widely accepted English language test, and the IELTS is the International English Language Testing System that measures the ability to communicate in English across language skills (listening, reading, writing, and speaking). Similar to most schools around the world, we interpret the scores as follows:
In order to register at ZUMS and commence your studies, you must provide a certificate of IELTS with a minimum band score of 5.5 or its equivalent in TOEFL iBT (minimum 69) or TOEFL PBT (minimum 525) at the time of registration. Otherwise, attending English language classes is obligatory. These applicants are required to refer to ZUMS Intl. College at the time of registration and receive Exemption/English Classes’ Registration Certificate after attending the ZUMS Intl. College placement test.
After the placement test, if applicant’s English language proficiency is not high enough to attend in the program’s English classes, he/she is required to pass at least one semester of English language classes before or during the academic program. This decision will be made based on evaluation and the placement test of ZUMS Intl. College , and based on the decision of ZUMS Office of International Admissions for international students.
The Placement Test and English Classes Expenses at ZUMS Intl. College:
English language Placement Test (1st time) costs $15 only and English Language Classes (all 120 sessions) costs $3,153. Please note that this fee is completely separate from the education fee or other tuition fees.
