Applicants who submit a certificate are requested to sit the AIT Academic Writing Test upon arrival to determine their level of proficiency on the AIT scale.
If your submitted certificate is not acceptable, we will inform you immediately. In this case, you are required to submit an English score of AIT-approved tests (See Number 3 below).

Students with good academic records with lower scores may receive “conditional admission”. They will be required to attend English classes at AIT until their scores improve. Please see the test score comparison table here.
Those who are interested in applying but do not meet the minimum English proficiency requirements for admission or conditional admission are recommended to study English in their home countries until they are ready to re-apply.
