AUIS’s English Proficiency Test
The American University of Iraq, Sulaimani (AUIS) and the Academic Preparatory Program (APP) admits students of all ages, cultures and backgrounds. Each student’s level of English proficiency is tested (using the AUIS English placement test*) prior to the start of his or her time on campus. The AUIS admissions policies ensure that all students get the instruction that they need in order to thrive in an American-style education system. The AUIS English placement test (or equivalent English test) is used in order to determine which level (APP Level Foundations, 1, 2, 3, or the undergraduate program) a student is qualified to enter. By using the placement test to determine the English-competency levels of all of our applicants, we have created an objective and fair method of determining the proper placement of each student, either within APP or in the AUIS undergraduate program.
