This test tells us whether certain students would benefit from free English classes.
The Test of English at Matriculation (TEAM) is not used to decide whether or not to accept you at the University.
TEAM is used to assess whether you may benefit from the English courses offered, free of charge, to non-native speakers on postgraduate programmes at Edinburgh.
Only students with an unconditional place can take TEAM.
Students who are registered for online distance learning programmes at Edinburgh are not required to take the TEAM test.
You must take TEAM: If the English test score you present for acceptance at the University is below 7.0 IELTS or 100 TOEFL iBT, then you must take TEAM as part of your matriculation.
You should take TEAM: If you score 7.0 IELTS or 100 TOEFL iBT or more you will not be required to take TEAM, but we strongly recommend you do so, to see whether you qualify for a place in our English classes.
If you are registered for a programme (other than online distance learning), you will receive instructions about TEAM from your college office.
