Applicants to AUIS must demonstrate English ability either by taking AUIS's English Placement Test or by submitting an official, recent TOEFL, IELTS or Pearson score. Applicants must demonstrate a minimum proficiency in English grammar, reading and writing in order to be admitted into the University.
Once admitted, students may need to do additional English preparation. As help to admitted students, AUIS offers the Academic Preparatory Program, an intensive English preparatory program. APP runs three terms per calendar year; a student may be in APP for up to four terms, but the average AUIS admittee spends a year or less in the program.
