THE TOEIC AND OTHER RELEVANT INTERNATIONAL EXAMS
A minimum of 785 points on the TOEIC (Test of English for International Communication) test is an ENPC degree requirement. We organize several TOEIC tests here at the ENPC per academic year, and offer language courses for weaker students, including coaching sessions. TOEIC preparation materials are available in La Source, and online. Students will receive an email giving them information on test dates.
Students entering the school will sit the TOEIC during their first semester at the ENPC.
If you have an equivalent international test or exam, Cambridge exams, IELTS or TOEFL, please send them to Stacey Benoit firstname.lastname@example.org or Diarietou Coulibaly email@example.com with a scan of the original of your certificate, score report etc. so that equivalence can be officially recognized. Your exam/test result should be valid and/or recent.
The TOEIC is geared towards the use of English in the workplace, and is often demanded by future employers. It is NOT accepted by English-speaking universities, for which the American TOEFL or the British/Canadian/Australian IELTS is required (see below).
Davis Sayers will register you for the TOEIC and inform you of the date that concerns you. Official score reports are to be collected from Diarietou Coulibaly in B223.
ENGLISH SPEAKING UNIVERSITIES
English-speaking universities require a test of English of all non-native students, either the American TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language) or the British/Canadian/Australian IELTS (International English Language Testing System). American universities accept IELTS and TOEFL and almost all British, Canadian and Australian universities accept IELTS. Both tests measure your competence in academic English and your ability to live on an English-speaking campus. No university will accept the TOEIC (see above).
