Yale University, Carnegie Mellon University and Vanderbilt University now accept Cambridge English Qualifications as part of their undergraduate admission. This move makes it easier for international students to apply to study at one of these prestigious universities, and will give students even greater opportunities to pursue their academic goals.
The recognition of Cambridge English certificates means that international students who have completed an English language qualification will be able to use it as evidence of their English proficiency when applying to any of these three US universities.
Yale University, a private Ivy League University, is considered one of the top universities in the world. It recognises C1 Advanced and C2 Proficiency for undergraduate admission, as well as B2 First. Carnegie Mellon University, a private research university, is renowned for its computer science and engineering programmes, and Vanderbilt University known for its strong liberal arts and sciences programs also recognise C1 Advanced and C2 Proficiency for their undergraduate admissions.
These qualifications cover the real-life communication skills that students need to follow an academic course at university level and participate with confidence in tutorials and seminars. C2 Proficiency in particular shows that students have mastered English to an exceptional level and can communicate with fluency and sophistication similar to the level of a native English speaker.
