  • Non-U.S. applicants are not required to submit MCAT scores and are encouraged to sit for the medical admissions exam available in their country of study. Waiver of a medical admissions exam is managed on an individual basis and at the sole discretion of the AUC Admissions Committee.

English Language Medical School Requirement

Sint Maarten: AUC’s Admissions Committee reserves the right to request proof of English proficiency for any applicant when deemed necessary to assess success at AUC. The selection will be based on factors identified by the Admissions Committee, such as graduating from institutions in which the education is not delivered in English or for applicants who are non-native English speakers.

Applicants may satisfy the English proficiency requirement by taking one of two examinations and meeting the recommended score:

  • International English Language Testing System (IELTS). AUC recommends scores equivalent to 7.0 or above in all areas.
  • Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL). AUC recommends an overall score of 100 or above.

Requirements may vary based on citizenship, passport, and prior education. Applicants should work with the admissions department to determine next steps for satisfying English requirements.
