English Placement Test

The Intercollege’s English Placement Test (EPT) is mandatory for all prospective students. The primary objective of this test is to determine the appropriate English language proficiency level that will support students in their academic journey at the University. It is important to note that the EPT is not an entrance examination for the College; instead, it complements the Intercollege entrance requirements by considering previous academic achievements such as the School Leaving Certificate.


Students who possess specific qualifications are eligible to take the test, ensuring they are placed in an English language level that aligns with their skills and knowledge.

Students who take part in the InterPro+ (Free English Preparatory and College Skills Orientation Programme) may retake the test once during the InterPro+ programme. Students are strongly recommended to attend this FREE InterPro+ programme and put every possible effort into studying and preparing for the retake of the EPT. This will help students achieve better results perhaps being placed in one of the higher-level English courses without spending extra time and money during their academic studies.
