International Entry Requirements

English Language

Students whose native language is not English must demonstrate proficiency by achieving a score in a test such as the Academic IELTS or TOEFL.  Other English language tests may also be accepted as proof of English proficiency.

Alternatively, students who have successfully completed two years of full-time study where the language of instruction was English, may satisfy the English requirement.  This study must have been undertaken no more than two years prior to the date on your Russo Business School Letter of Offer.  In addition, students must provide a certificate or statement confirming this from the Registrar’s office where the student studied.

For students who do not meet English language entry requirements, Russo Business School partners with Sarina Russo Institute to deliver quality English language education.
