In some cases, you need additional documents to prove that you fulfill the specific entry requirements for the programme you are applying to.
How do I show my English proficiency?
The most common way of proving English proficiency is by means of an internationally recognised test:
Upper secondary and university studies in some countries can also meet the requirement. Always check the country instructions to find out exactly what the requirement is.
