The TOEFL iBT® test, administered via the Internet, is an important part of your journey to study in an English-speaking country. The test measures your ability to use and understand English at the university level, and it evaluates how well you combine your listening, reading, speaking and writing skills to perform academic tasks.

More than 27 million people from all over the world have taken the TOEFL test to demonstrate their English-language proficiency. The average English skill level ranges between Intermediate and Advanced.

  • Students planning to study at a higher education institution
  • English-language learning program admissions and exit
  • Scholarship and certification candidates
  • English-language learners who want to track their progress
  • Students and workers applying for visas

During the test, you are asked to perform tasks that combine more than one skill, such as:

  • Read, listen and then speak in response to a question
  • Listen and then speak in response to a question
  • Read, listen and then write in response to a question
