Undergraduate Admissions at American University, Washington, DC has added Cambridge Assessment English C1 Advanced and C2 Proficiency as one of the ways applicants can prove their English language proficiency.
C1 Advanced is an in-depth, high-level qualification that covers the skills that students need to follow an academic course at university level and participate with confidence in tutorials and seminars.
C2 Proficiency is Cambridge Assessment English’s highest-level qualification that shows students have mastered English to an exceptional level.
Both qualifications are produced by Cambridge Assessment English and are the most rigorous English proficiency qualifications that cover real-life communication skills. They measure English language skills in line with the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR), which is the global standard for measuring language ability. Cambridge Assessment English was involved in the development of the CEFR, and all of their examinations are aligned to the levels described by the CEFR. Experts at Cambridge continue to work towards the future development of the CEFR through ongoing research projects.
Pete Novak, Country Manager for Cambridge Assessment English said:
“We’re delighted about this level of recognition from American University, Washington, DC which is such a prestigious institution in the US. Every year thousands of students study in the US and the English-language challenges can be very daunting. However, our experts in Cambridge ensure that our qualifications support the learning process and cover the real-life communication skills that students need to confidently take part in higher education degrees. Students who hold a Cambridge English Qualification will be well prepared to thrive at American University.”
American University has a long tradition of welcoming students from across the US and the world to their campus, which is home to more than 1,830 international students representing 123 countries. They join a growing list of 25,000 organisations around the world including governments and universities around the world that recognise Cambridge English exams as proof of English language ability.
