What is the required English level for the program?
In what cases are applicants exempted from submitting proof of English proficiency?
No proof of English language skills is required for applicants who have completed their previous academic degrees in English as well as those who are from countries/regions where English is the official language and are considered to be native speakers of English.
However, as the quality of English varies quite a lot internationally, applicants who are not native speakers of English are recommended to submit international language certificates. Additionally, applicants who obtained their academic degrees in English more than three years before applying to SDAC are also encouraged to submit certificates.
