All students are required to sit for an English Placement Test.
Students applying to the Faculty of Education or are holders of the equivalence of the Lebanese Baccalaureate are required to sit also for an Arabic Placement Test.
The language placement tests results do not affect admission decisions but help place the student at the appropriate language level. Depending on the test results, students who do not meet the language required level will be given remedial courses or students who achieve high results will be exempted from taking the language courses.
