English Proficiency for Non-Native Speakers

All UBI classes are conducted in English, and all testing is written in English. Therefore, English proficiency can be a key component to success at UBI. However, because UBI’s classroom instruction is dominantly visual and hands-on, students who are not fluent in English can still complete UBI training successfully. It is UBI policy to offer extra time on written examinations to students for whom English is a second language. UBI does not require students to submit TOEIC or TOEFL scores for admission to the school. However, we can provide guideline scores for those who choose to take one of these tests that will help the student assess whether his or her current English speaking proficiency will be a barrier to success.
