English Language Proficiency


KUMS accepts both the TOEFL and IELTS English language scores. Clearly, only one would be enough. The TOEFL test is the most widely accepted English language test, and the IELTS is the International English Language Testing System that measures the ability to communicate in English across language skills (listening, reading, writing, and speaking). Similar to most Universities around the world, we interpret the scores as follows:

TOEFL Paper-Based Test TOEFL CBT Internet-Based Test TOEFL iBT Internet-Based Test IELTS
0-310 0-30 0-8 0 - 1
310-343 33-60 9-18 1 - 1.5
347-393 63-90 19-29 2 - 2.5
397-433 93-120 30-40 3 - 3.5
437-473 123-150 41-52 4
477-510 153-180 53-64 4.5 - 5
513-547 183-210 65-78 5.5 - 6
550 - 587 213 - 240 79 - 95 6.5 - 7
590 - 637 243 - 270 96 - 110 7.5 - 8
640 - 677 273 - 300 111 - 120 8.5 - 9
677 120 300 9

In order to register at KUMS and commence your studies, you must provide a certificate of IELTS with a minimum band score of 5.5 or its equivalent in TOEFL iBT (minimum 69) or TOEFL PBT (minimum 525) at the time of registration. Otherwise, attending English language classes may be necessary. These applicants are required to refer to KUMS Int’l College at the time of registration and receive Exemption/English Classes’ Registration Certificate after attending in KUMS Int’l College placement test. (Read below for further information)

Evaluation Procedure:

The following individuals are normally exempted from providing a certificate of English language proficiency, but in some cases, they will be required to refer to KUMS Int’l College for an English language Proficiency placement test:

  • Applicants who are natives of English-Speaking countries
  • Applicants who are from countries where English is the official language

Again, in some cases, those above-mentioned individuals may be required to refer to KUMS Int’l College for an English language Proficiency placement test based on KUMS Office of International Admission’s decision. After the placement test, if applicant’s English language proficiency is not high enough to attend in the program’s English classes, he/she is required to pass at least one semester English language classes before the program or during the program. This decision will be made based on KUMS Int’l College evaluation and the placement test, and based on the decision of KUMS Office of International Admissions for international students.
