English as a Second Language

All students beginning a degree program at Grenfell Campus whose first language is not English and who have not completed a degree in an all-English medium university are required to write the English Placement Test. You are only required to write this test if you submitted an IELTS, TOEFL, MELAB or other test of English proficiency score for admission to Memorial University.

EXCHANGE STUDENTS and students in INTENSIVE ENGLISH PROGRAMS at Grenfell are NOT REQUIRED to write this test.
