English Language Proficiency Requirement for UCC programmes

Full-time study for two years or a bachelor's degree from an institution where the principal instruction was English is acceptable.

Conditional Admission
Students seeking undergraduate or graduate admission without proficiency in English may receive a conditional offer into a degree programme based on successful completion of the UCC's ESL preparatory programme(s) offered through the International Centre for English as a Second Language.

International Centre for English as a Second Language*
The International Centre for English as a Second Language (ICESL) offers an Intensive Academic Preparation programme at the intermediate and the advanced levels for students planning to study at UCC, Florida International University (FIU) or the University of London (UOL) in Jamaica.

ICESL offers these 10-week English programmes throughout the year (Spring, Fall and Summer). Students in the Intensive Academic Programme with appropriate English proficiency can take one undergraduate class per semester for one credit as Open University students at no additional tuition cost.

Upon arrival, students will be required to complete a short diagnostic/placement test so they can be placed in the class which is most suitable to their linguistic ability. Students who successfully complete the Intensive Academic Programme will be fully admitted to UCC without a TOEFL/IELTS/TWE score.

*Note: The International Centre for English as a Second Language (ICESL) is an independent subsidiary of UCC.
