Applicants from Thailand

In order to facilitate students taking the TOEFL test, Webster Thailand arranges regular TOEFL exams (Institutional TOEFL tests). This works best for students who, for reasons such as unavailability on exam dates, are not able to take the TOEFL tests at a TOEFL center.

This institutional test is created and marked by the TOEFL board (ETS) and is accepted by all Webster campuses for admissions purposes. However, this test score may not be accepted by other American universities.

During the admissions process, if you have been conditionally accepted into the Webster program on the understanding that you will submit the minimum required English proficiency score before your arrival to Thailand.
