Due to disruptions to freedom of movement after COVID-19, many International students planning their post-high school study are finding it difficult to attend exam centers. With over 1 billion students affected by the global pandemic, tertiary application processes have been forced online or postponed. We are pleased to offer the Duolingo English Test (DET), as an alternative to IELTS or TOEFL, for those who want to take it.
Duolingo offers an affordable and efficient solution for those struggling to reach an exam center due to lockdown conditions in their home country. The test can be taken at home, under exam conditions, and results are received within 48 hours.
In order to accept International student’s applications for tertiary admission at Geneva Business School we require official IELTS or TOEFL English certification results as follows:
- For Bachelor’s TOEFL: 70 / IELTS: 6.0 / DET 95 – 100
- For Master’s and MBA TOEFL: 74 / IELTS: 6.5 / DET 105 – 110
- For DBA TOEFL: 85 / IELTS: 7.0 / DET 115 – 120
A full range of equivalent results for the Duolingo English Test can be found on this handy comparison table.
Geneva Business School now accepts the DET for applications for Bachelor’s, Master’s, MBAs, and DBAs, as an alternative to IELTS, TOEFL or equivalent tests. All you need to take the test, is a computer, a webcam, a microphone, and an internet connection. You will also need a quiet, well-lit room and about 60 minutes of privacy.
