Test Prep – Applying to University?
The American Language Center offers Specialized Test Preparation Courses for the following examinations: SAT, ACT, TOEFL, GMAT, GRE, iTEP. Students may study in small groups (maximum 4 students) or privately.
International students must take a standardized test of English to move into higher levels of education and employment. There are four popular English language proficiency tests that universities or employers use. They are the Test of English as a Foreign Language, TOEFL, the Test of English for International Communication, TOEIC, the International English Language Testing System, IELTS, and the International Test of English Proficiency, iTEP.
There is also a verbal and reasoning test, SAT, Scholastic Aptitude Test, which is required for admission to most US and many global (including Italian) undergraduate universities.
In most cases, the choice is clear. A student applying to a school learns which test the program requires. However, some programs or universities will accept scores from any of the international tests of English. Then, a student may choose which test to take.
