If you are taking part in an English-speaking medical course at your home university it is not necessary to demonstrate English language proficiency. If you are not a native speaker of English and are studying on a non-English speaking medical course you must have a very high standard of spoken and written English and demonstrate proficiency by providing a certificate of your ability to communicate in English (TOEFL, IELTS, Cambridge Proficiency or Advanced certificates or a university certificate).
