What is the English Language International Certificate?

All candidates for WUT need to hold a proper certificate to prove their knowledge and skills in the English language - it has to be one of the certificates from the list below.

What if my previous education was conducted in English?

If your previous education was conducted fully in English, we would not require any specific B2 English certificate, but we will need a confirmation from your school/university that the medium of instruction of all classes and exams was 100% English. Note that it has to be a school/university that you successfully graduated from. The proof can be in the form of a separate letter or certificate. Sometimes, you can find it in the back of your main document or in the supplement (e.g. in Turkish accessories point 5.1).

If your high school was, for example, in Chinese, and then you completed just one year at a university in the English language - it is not enough because you did not graduate from that university (you just did one year). But if you graduated with Bachelor's studies and they were in English, then we would accept just the Medium of Instruction statement from that university.

What if my previous education was NOT conducted in English?

Suppose your previous education was in a different language, or you studied in English for some time but did not graduate from an English-medium school/university. In that case, you must have one of the International certificates listed below.
