Please notice:

I. Many schools accept test scores being submitted after the application deadline

II. Some schools make exceptions from the GMAT requirement if the candidates can display outstanding academic and/or professional track records

The most frequently asked tests when applying for different masterís are the following:

TOEFL - Test of English as a Foreign Language

For obvious reasons, native English speakers do not have to take this test. Normally, students holding an American or UK degree do not have to take the TOEFL either.

There are two versions of the TOEFL - one computer-based and one paper-based. In most parts of the world, the computer based test is used. It consists of four parts: Listening, Structure/Writing, Reading, and Essay. Multiple-choice questions are used except for in the Essay part.

For people who are used to speak, read and write in English, the TOEFL should not be too difficult, even if some preparation would be recommended.

More information and preparation kits can be found at the TOEFL web-site www.toefl.org . There you can order or download information bulletins about test-dates, subscription and test locations. If you live in Europe, a bulletin can be ordered directly via [email protected]

We would also like to recommend the Kaplan preparation kits that can be purchased at www.kaptest.com/toefl

Review.de offers prep courses for the GMAT/GRE/TOEFL and also has an on-line bookshop with preparation material.

If the school you apply for require the TOEFL, but you have taken the IELTS, we would recommend you to ask the school administration if they accept IELTS as a substitute for the TOEFL.
