English language proficiency

Having a strong understanding of the English language is important for success at UC. That’s why we want to make sure you can demonstrate English proficiency before you attend one of our campuses.

How do I know if I need to meet this requirement? 

If all of your high school/secondary school education was completed in English, you are considered proficient and do not need to satisfy this requirement.

However, if you've completed some high school or secondary school in a country where English was not the language of instruction, you will be required to demonstrate English proficiency if you have had less than 3 years of instruction in English.

How do I demonstrate English proficiency?
