Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL®)

TOEFL® measures your proficiency in the English language in an academic context. The TOEFL® test is a registered trademark of Educational Testing Service (ETS®) and is administered worldwide. The test was first administered 1964 and has since been taken by millions of students. Most universities and colleges in the US and Canada require you to take the TOEFL test if you want to apply for a place to study there. More than 6,000 colleges, universities, and licensing agencies in 110 countries accept TOEFL scores.

TOEFL for Whom
You may need to sit the TOEFL test if your native language is not English and
  • you are applying to study at a university in the US
  • you are applying to be a teaching assistant as part of your (post) graduate programme at a US university
  • you are applying for a license to work as a doctor or nurse in the US
