Entrance Requirements:


A Bachelor's degree from a recognised institution.

Applicants are expected to meet ONE of the following requirements:

  • A Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) score of at least 96 for the Internet-based test, or a TOEFL score of at least 590 for the paper-based test;



  • A score of at least 7.0 on listening and reading sections with no sub-score below 6.5 in the International English Language Testing System (IELTS);



  • A level of competence in English, as demonstrated by performance in the admission test set by MATI, which indicates that the applicant* is capable of studying successfully at the taught MA level.



*This only applies to either native English speakers or non-native English applicants with a Bachelor’s degree from a university using English as the medium of instruction (EMI).



Non-native speakers or applicants without a Bachelor’s degree from an EMI university (but meeting the requirement as stated in the third bullet point) still have to fulfil the University-wide minimum language requirements. Exceptional cases are considered on a case-by-case basis.
