      Good (c)l(i)uck with your application,

      Kristina, mladiinfo

    1. Cau cuca,

      so proficiency in English is usually defined by a certain amount of points gained at IELTS (most IELTS requirements by universities fall between 5.5 and 7.0, for Oxford University it is 7.0) or at TOEFL (for Oxford it is min. 600)and by these two Cambridge certificates: CAE and CPE (however, on their website, OU metions that they recognize only CPE).
      As they are not specifying which, you are most probably required to provide them with any of these mentioned.

      So, I hope my response has satisfied you.

      Good luck,

      Kristina, mladiinfo

  3. Dear Sir or Madam

    I started application for Oxford and I hope so that you will like my application and I will be part of your future students. But I have one concern. I did not take TOEFL. I know that we should have it,if we want to apply for your university. I would like to ask you is there an opportunity to take the exam a little bit later so if I can send you my scores and the sertificate. The time until the deadline is really short,so I will not have enough time to prepare for TOEFL. I hope so you will understand me and give me support to continue with my application. Hopefully TOEFL will not be crucial for your decision for accepting or not my application. Furthermore I would like to ask you one more question. I will graduate in june 2011 so I want to know if I can apply or first I need to finish my university? I didn't see it that this application is only for graduate students.

    Yours sincerely
    Bojana

    1. Dear, Junior,

      I don't know what you are asking about. You can start, for example, with reading through the terms of the chosen scholarship. Application process differs from scholarship to scholarship.

      Best,

      Kristina,
