Go to Australia or New Zealand
The TOEFL iBT® test given in test centers is accepted by the Australian government for visas that require evidence of English proficiency. The government has not yet made a decision regarding the TOEFL iBT Special Home Edition test that is given at home.
All international students need a student visa to attend college or university in Australia. To gain an Australian visa, you'll need to demonstrate your English abilities to the Australian Department of Home Affairs. You can use your TOEFL iBT® scores to do this! Just be sure to check the score requirements of the universities and programs where you're applying — those requirements may be different than the student visa requirements.
For more information about getting your Australian visa, visit the Australian Department of Home Affairs website.
You can also use your TOEFL scores to apply for a variety of temporary and permanent visas, including skilled migration, post-study work, business, and work and holiday. For more information about skilled migration, including TOEFL iBT score requirements for professional bodies, read Australian Skilled Migration FAQs visit the Australian Department of Home Affairs website.
You can use your TOEFL iBT scores to prove English-language proficiency for university and college admission in New Zealand. Check with the institutions directly for their score requirements.
TOEFL iBT scores are also accepted for permanent skilled migration visas. For the Skilled Migrant Category Resident Visa, you need a total score of 79 or more from a test taken within 2 years prior to your application date. Visit the Immigration New Zealand website for more information.
TOEFL iBT scores are also recognized by the New Zealand Qualifications Authority (NZQA) for Institutes of Technology and Polytechnics (ITPs) and Private Training Establishments (PTEs).
