Entrance requirements for western universities

Postby Big Vern » Sun Mar 11, 2018 16:06

My wife asked me a question and despite an extensive online search I'm not sure of the answer.

If one's child has dual nationality and goes through the Taiwanese education system, will they need to take an IELTS to enter a British university? My immediate answer was of course they would because, even though the passport says British, they wouldn't have any exam results that show native speaker status. However, I can't find anything online that confirms this. It must be an issue that regularly crops up, so you'd think that there would be something about it somewhere. I assume the same would be true with TOEFL and many US universities.

Well of course not. You're from Zimbabwe or Scotland or somewhere.
