How can I submit proof of my language skills?

You can upload the certificate to the online application portal yourself or have the language institute transmit the results to us. If you have taken the English TOEFL test, please provide the ETS with our institute's number (7977). 

Please note that the reading and writing modules in the General IELTS exam are not designed to test the full range of language skills required for academic purposes.  The listening and speaking sections are identical but reading and writing differ. Therefore, applicants must take the Academic IELTS exam.
