English Language
International students are required to have a good standard of English before starting any program. For students whose native language is not English, NYC requires a minimum of IELTS 6.0, or a recognized equivalent.
Students do not need to have taken the test before applying, but will need to have gained the minimum test scores before they begin classes. The English Language Department offers classes and workshops to improve language skills for students whose English level is less than the required standard.

NYC may require students from some nations to submit High School Diplomas or other academic qualifications to World Educational Services (WES) for an official evaluation.

Students whose level of English is lower than the required they may still apply and register onto intensive English Language classes in the first semester of their studies with NYC.
