I am interested in a full-time MBA programme and wonder if any of the following exempts me from taking the TOEFL/IELTS test:
A) GMAT of 710 (91% percentile in the verbal section, 78% percentile in AWA)
B) My bachelor's degree from an English-speaking institution (Amsterdam School of Business, Netherlands)
C) 4.5 years work experience in an English-speaking environment (half a year in the US)
Thanks for your reply.
Answer from Warwick Business School
Thank you for your enquiry. We would expect all applicants who do not have English as their native language to take an English Language test UNLESS:
- they have graduated from an English speaking University
- they have worked in an English-speaking environment for at least 2 years.
From the details you have provided, therefore, you would not need to take the TOEFL or IELTS.
I hope that this helps. Please visit www.wbs.ac.uk for more information.

Thank you for your email,
Your experience of studying at an English speaking institution and English speaking work environment will mean that you do not have to undertake a TOEFL or IELTS Test.
Answer from Manchester Business School
Thanks for your e-mail.
If you have studied in an English speaking institution for three years and/or have worked in the UK or U.S for three or more years you would most likely be exempt from taking TOEFL or IELTS.
