MITT will be accepting TOEIC scores for the purpose of placement at MITT English Language Training Centre-International. TOEIC does not qualify for direct entry to post-secondary programs at MITT but it can be used for placement in the language program. If students can provide TOEIC scores, they can gain conditional enrolment at MITT based on the TOEIC scores. For example, if a student’s TOEIC score is between 605 and 600, the student will be placed to Level 4 at MITT English Language Training Centre.
The Institute has more streamlined process now and international students are encouraged to submit all language proficiency document(s) even if they are lower than IELTS 5.5 ( or equivalency).
