Graduate Tests

Graduates with a bachelor’s degree (or the equivalent, i.e. Licence) from recognized colleges and universities may apply for admission to graduate study at AUI. Admission is very competitive. Candidates for admission must provide evidence of superior academic performance. Each school has a graduate admissions committee to evaluate applicants for acceptance to graduate programs. Each committee is chaired by its Dean and composed of faculty members from the school.

Students who meet all academic conditions are accepted to a degree program with regular status. Those whose background does not include the specific requirements for a given graduate program may need to take undergraduate foundation courses prior to accessing regular graduate courses.

 


English Language Requirements

Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL)

Graduate applicants are required to provide a TOEFL score of 550 (iBT: 79) with a score of 5.0 (iBT 20) in English Writing in order to be admitted to the regular programs, or a TOEFL score of 450 (iBT: 45) to be admitted to the Al Akhawayn Language Center.

Graduate applicants to the School of Humanities and Social Sciences with a score between 500 and 547 (iBT: 61 and 77) may enroll in the Al Akhawayn Language Center.

 


International TOEFL (iBT)

To learn more about the International TOEFL and register for a test, you can access the TOEFL website at www.toefl.org. Applicants who intend to take the International TOEFL should make arrangements ahead of time and take into account Al Akhawayn application deadlines. International TOEFL score reports should typically be received at the Office of Admissions before June 30th for the fall semester and November 30th for the spring semester. International TOEFL score reports usually take four to five weeks to arrive. TOEFL results must be sent directly from the testing agency to the university. The Al Akhawayn TOEFL institutional code number is: 0125.

 


Al Akhawayn Institutional TOEFL

Applicants who are unable to take the International TOEFL should make arrangements to take the Al Akhawayn Institutional TOEFL. Al Akhawayn University administers an institutional TOEFL prior to the beginning of the fall and/or the spring semesters. The TOEFL is administered only to students who have applied for admission to Al Akhawayn University. These scores are valid only for admission to Al Akhawayn University and may not be valid for other purposes. In the case of multiple valid TOEFL scores, the Office of Admissions will consider the highest score.

Al Akhawayn University accepts a valid IELTS score from the International English Language Testing System. It can replace the TOEFL to measure a candidate’s proficiency of the English language.
