Students who want to enroll to the MA in Islamic Studies program at RGS and have not scored high enough on English Proficiency Exams (6 on the IELTS or 60-78 on the TOEFL) need to take an assessment test (oral proficiency interview + written exam) from RGS. 

*Even if a student meets the English requirements for RGS, they may still be required to take a proficiency exam (IELTS or TOEFL) for Charles Sturt University.

Assessment Test

Students who have not scored a 6 on the IELTS or 60-78 on the TOEFL will be required to take the RGS English Assessment test.

Assessment test will consist of two parts: 

  1. Oral proficiency interview (OPI)  
  2. Written exam 

Academic English Program Director, Nuriye Aksar, will contact prospective students in order to schedule their individual assessment test. Students will then either be granted a waiver or placed in one of the two levels according to their test results.
