All international applicants for admission to any SJTU program must provide evidence that their English language ability meets the minimum requirements for admission.

You will be deemed to have satisfied the English language requirements if you can provide evidence that you meet one or more of the following criteria:
i) English Language Tests
ii) Prior study in the medium of English
a) English Language Tests
SJTU recognizes a number of English Language tests and English Preparation Courses which can be undertaken to meet the University's English language requirements. These are set out in the following table, together with the minimum results required. The test/score must be valid till the year of application. For example, the TOEFL must have been undertaken no more than two years prior to the commencement of the program at SJTU, i.e., the test must be dated on or after January (two years prior) for Fall Semester intake.
b) Prior study in the medium of English
If you have successfully completed an assessable Senior Secondary qualification or a post-secondary/tertiary study at a recognized university from an English-speaking country you do not have to prove proficiency in English provided the qualification was:
i) Taught and examined in English
ii) Completed no more than two years prior to the commencement of the program at SJTU. iii) The statement or certificate must be on official headed paper, and must be the original document. * English-speaking countries recognized by SJTU international graduate programs include: American Samoa, Australia, Bahamas, Barbados, Belize, Botswana, Canada, Fiji, Gibraltar, Ghana, Guyana, Ireland, Jamaica, Kenya, Lesotho, Liberia, New Zealand, Nigeria, Papua New Guinea, Singapore, Solomon Islands, South Africa, The Gambia, Tonga, Trinidad and Tobago, United Kingdom (including Northern Ireland), United States of America, Zambia, Zimbabwe.
