All other countries/nationalities, including those in Africa where the common language of education is English, must submit a recent TOEFL score, or alternative IELTS or TOEIC score. Please see the full exemption policy guidelines, and categories, in the Admissions Guidelines.

Q. Although English is not my native language, I have graduated from an English medium university. Will I be exempted from taking the English courses at IUJ?

A. If you have formally completed an undergraduate or graduate program in a native English speaking country such as U.S.A., the U.K., Canada, Australia, New Zealand etc., you will be exempted from taking the English courses at IUJ. Furthermore, students from India, the Philippines, or Singapore may be exempted if they have formally completed an undergraduate or graduate program in an English-medium institution in their own countries.

Those students who fall into categories other than the above must take the IUJ’s English exemption tests to be exempted. For details, please refer to the English Exemption Policy which will be sent to those who have been admitted to IUJ.

Q. May I study only English at IUJ?

A. IUJ offers a summer Intensive English Program (IEP) that is aimed at preparing our incoming students for academic life at IUJ. IEP can welcome Summer Only students who do not plan on continuing in the full degree programs.

Contact the ELP for details.

Other than the summer program, NO, IUJ does not offer an English langauge studies degree.

IUJ does support the continuing English language development of our students especially during their first 2 terms.

The campus is an ideal place to learn and practice English. Many accents and ways of using English can be experienced through dorm life and evening sports, not to mention the classroom use. For those planning on being in an international and global work setting, there is no better place to practice and obtain international English proficiency.
