The medium of instruction at Springfield College of Healthcare, Management & Technology (SCHMT) is English, so it is essential that all students possess strong writing, speaking, listening, and reading skills in order to keep up with the curriculum. Before prospective students can be admitted to SCHMT, they must meet the SCHMT English Language Proficiency requirements. There are several different ways to do this:


  • Complete two or more consecutive years of full-time education in English within Canada immediately prior to attending SCHMT; or

  • Complete three years of full-time education at a school where medium of instruction is English, in a country other than Canada listed below. (A letter from the institution or the transcript justifying the medium of instruction must be submitted for evaluation);

  • Two years of full-time study at an English post-secondary institution in the countries listed below;

  • Graduate from a recognized degree program at an accredited university in a country listed below.

  • Achieve the competency standard indicated by one of the Tests of English Language Proficiency mentioned below.

  • Those applicants who don't have TOEFL or IELTS exam results, instead of attempting these language proficiency tests can attend an English studies program with our partner institute and thereby obtain the language standards required for admission in one of our programs. Students who successfully complete this English Program are exempt from taking the TOEFL or IELTS test and will be considered as having met all English Language Proficiency requirements for admission to Diploma Programs at Springfield College (contact us for details)
