English Language Proficiency

 

TUMS accepts both the TOEFL and IELTS English language scores. Clearly, only one would be enough. The TOEFL test is the most widely accepted English language test, and the IELTS is the International English Language Testing System that measures the ability to communicate in English across language skills (listening, reading, writing, and speaking). Similar to most schools around the world, we interpret the scores as follows:
