Students need an IELTS result of a minimum overall score of 6.0 with no band less than 5.5. The IELTS results must be issued within two years of the expected intake date.
To qualify under the Student Direct Stream, the student must submit a valid IELTS result of 6.0 overall with no individual band lower than 6.0 as proof of English language abilities.
Students submitting an IELTS of 6.0 overall with no band less than 5.5 can still apply for a study permit, however, the application will be processed in a longer timeline than what is set for SDS applicants.
Be aware that if you enter with the minimum requirements, you will need to improve your English language skills to succeed.
