English language proficiency

 

The language of instruction at the American College is the English language except for the programs offered in Greek language (see list of programs of study on page 26). English language proficiency is not a requirement for admission (for our distance learning programs it is a requirement) but for programs where English is the language of instruction and for programs where Greek is the language of instruction but students are required to have English language proficiency, students must provide proof of English language proficiency. Any of the following or a qualification equivalent to any of the following is considered as an acceptable proof:

 

  1. An average grade of 5.0 in the IELTS examination.
  2. A score of at least 61 in the TOEFL Internet Based Test (TOEFL iBT).
  3. A grade of “C” or higher in the GCSE O level / IGCSE English Language examination.
  4. A Secondary (High) School Leaving Certificate or equivalent qualifications where English was the language of instruction.
  5. A degree or a higher education qualification of at least 2 year’s duration where English was the language of instruction.

 

In case you do not possess one of the above qualifications but you are in possession of another qualification you may ask the Office of Admissions if your qualification is considered as an equivalent to any of the above qualifications.

 

English Language Placement Test

 

If a student fails to provide acceptable proof of his/her English language proficiency he/she will be required to take the American College English Language Placement Test (EPT) during College registration. The EPT enables us to determine the student’s level of English language. Depending on the mark obtained in the EPT students will either join the regular courses of their chosen program of study or take English language preparatory courses.
