- Please note that the results of your test must be final at the time of submitting an application. We will not accept late submissions of proof of English proficiency.
- Please note that most TOEFL and IELTS tests results are only valid for 2 years from the test date.
General language requirements:
IELTS Academic test (www.ielts.org)
- An overall band score of at least 6.5, with no section lower than 6, is required.
- IELTS tests are verified online by the Admissions Office, submitting a scanned copy of your test with a visible TRF number together with your application documents is therefore sufficient. We don’t accept General training IELTS tests.
- Home-based tests are not accepted at TU/e.
TOEFL Internet-based test, iBT (www.toefl.org)

English proficiency test waiver
English proficiency tests are waived only for applicants who have completed a degree instructed in English at a university that is physically located in one of the following countries: USA, Canada, UK, Ireland, Australia or New Zealand.
> I have completed studies in English or in an English-speaking country. Why can’t the waiver apply to me?
The EIT Urban Mobility Master programmes are designed to conform to the EIT Label, a certificate of quality awarded to excellent educational programmes. Therefore, to ensure consistent and meaningful EIT-labelled education throughout the entire Master School, all partner universities agree on a common and jointly executed admission process.
The above requirements regarding English proof of proficiency have been agreed upon by all partner universities as the highest common acceptable denominator and signed in the Master School Agreement. This ensures that they all respect the same process when selecting the applicants.
Although it seems logical and legitimate for applicants who have completed a degree in English in another country than the ones mentioned in the waiver’s list, it remains nevertheless impossible for the Master’s School to grant any exception. It is a matter of fairness and quality guarantee that we have such English requirements.
> I have previously studied at one of the partner universities and intend to study EIT Urban Mobility master’s programmes at this university (as entry or exit year). Why can’t the waiver apply to me?
You have just graduated with a bachelor’s degree taught in English from one of EIT Urban Mobility’s partner universities, and you intend to study our programmes at this same university, whether as an entry or an exit. Although this university once accepted your proof of English proficiency, please remember that a different logic is at work when applying for EIT Urban Mobility master’s programmes.
As you know, EIT Urban Mobility’s master’s programmes are double degree programmes taught at two different universities in Europe, so your admission to our programmes is not solely dependent on one university’s assessment. In addition, since applicants are invited to express several entry/exit preferences, the selection committee evaluates the applications in light of all these choices. Then again, the English requirements agreed upon by all partner universities thus guarantee equal treatment between the applicants, which is why we do not make exceptions to it.
