Language Requirements

The minimum number of years required to waive requirements is four years of satisfactory, full-time study in an English-language school system in a country where English is the dominant language. If an English facility test is required, you will be exempt from also having to include a 4U English (ENG4U/EAE4U) in your admission average, provided that six other acceptable 4U credits are presented.

If your test result falls into the discretionary ranges indicated below it will be reviewed automatically. You will be notified if your discretionary range score satisfies the English language requirement. As we cannot guarantee that the score will be accepted, it is recommended  that you arrange to take another test if the official results can be submitted to us by the appropriate document deadline.

If French is your first language and you achieved satisfactory academic progress in at least four years of full-time study in Canada, you are not required to provide proof of English facility.
