If you’re looking to continue your career or attend graduate school in an English-speaking environment, you may find the TOEFL to be more of a chore than other people. Although the test is an effective measure of academic English at any level, it’s formatted to closely reflect the demands of lower-level undergraduate studies. If you’re applying to higher-level or subject-specific programs, your studying for the TOEFL will be largely separate from your other preparation to work or study in your field. Nevertheless, the test is almost always required for foreign applicants (often there’s an exception if you earned an undergraduate at an English-speaking university).
This post will provide a sample of the requirements for various graduate and professional programs in the US. For each entry, click the link under “field” to see the source of the information.
