English Language Requirement
The admission requirements differ from program to program but one common requirement for international students applying to Aalborg University is an English language requirement of English at level B (Danish level). This level is equivalent to the minimum test scores of the following international tests:
- IELTS (academic test)**: 6.5 (www.ielts.org)
- TOEFL (paper-based)*: 560 (www.ets.org/toefl)
- TOEFL (internet-based)*: 88 (www.ets.org/toefl)
- Cambridge Certificate of Proficiency (CPE)*: B2 (cambridgeenglish.org)
- Cambridge Certificate in Advanced English (CAE)*: B2 (cambridgeenglish.org)
- Cambridge First Certificate with the grade B* (cambridgeenglish.org)
Your English language proficiency must be documented in the form of the required minimum test result from one of these tests. We only accept one of these tests as documentation. The test must be less than two years old.
(*The test has to be sent directly from the test center)
(** Original or verified copy of original).
You do not, however, have to submit an English test if you have a complete high school or bachelor degree taught in English from either Australia, the UK, Ireland, USA, New Zealand, South Africa, Canada, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Iceland or Finland.
If you have questions about the tests, please contact Aalborg University's International Office.
