KU Leuven Admissions Requiring Native English-Speakers to do TOEFL (iBT), IELTS, or Cambridge English Examination Testing


CamCari
I would like to ask if it is reasonable for KU Leuven Admissions Office to require a native English speaker to complete an English test despite completing an undergraduate law degree entirely taught in English (degree was obtained in a non-English European country with an Erasmus year fully taught in English at Maastricht University)?

KU Leuven offers exemptions for the test for only applicants coming from the USA, Canada, UK, Ireland, Austrailia, and New Zealand. However, there are other countries (like in the Caribbean former British West Indies) where the official language English (UK). I would like to get your feedback on this policy.

You might be interpreting their requirements in a wrong way. Have you got in touch with them? I am sure that you will be fine.

I contacted them and they insist that I must take the test lest my application be rejected.
