Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL):

The TOEFL measures your English language skills (through written and listening comprehension exercises), and is used by universities to assess your ability to communicate. Semi-finalists in all fields of study must complete this exam.

Graduate Record Examination (GRE):

The GRE measurs verbal, mathematical and critical thinking skills. Many universities require the GRE for graduate study. Semi finalists in all fields except Business and Law must complete this exam. The GRE revised General Test, introducedon August 1, 2011, features new types of questions and differs from previous versions of the GRE.




IELTS or ‘International English Language Testing System‘- is an international standardised test of English language proficiency. There are two versions of the IELTS:

1. The Academic Version and the General Training Version:
The Academic Version is intended for those who want to enroll in universities and other institutions of higher education and for professionals such as medical doctors and nurses who want to study or practise in an English-speaking country.
2. The General Training Version is intended for those planning to undertake non-academic training or to gain work experience, or for immigration purposes.

For all tests, current Muskie fellows recommend that you:

  • Increase your vocabulary; write words and definitions on note cards and test yourself frequently Practice listening sections on sample tests 
  • Practice reading and listening sections on sample tests  sections.First read the question and make sure you understand what is being asked, then read the selection, and then answer the questions.
  • Watch TV programs, movies (subtitles are helpful), and listen to music.
  • Use test preparation books and CDs (available online or at some English language resource centers).
