I am about to start applications for PhD programs in Europe. I have been going through many universities and one of the additional requirements is English language. I have been doing my masters from Uppsala university and all the course work that i went through are in English.

Although i have an IELTS exam score (7.5) which i gave in India before coming to Sweden to prove my English language efficiency. But it would expire in 2013.

So, do i still need to appear for a IELTS or TOEFL to prove my english language or can i be exempted from this?
Cheers,

Mad Researcher

If you are going to enroll PhD before 2013 (Expiry of your IELTS score) then there is no need otherwise you have appear for IELTS again.

Yes you do :) Depends on the situation. But I have studied in international high school (English), international university (English), I am more fluent in English than my mother tongue...but there were people that simply do not care.

Hint: I have my Cambridge exams for English as a foreign language both Advanced and Proficiency and those are without any expiry date... on top they are widely accepted in Europe (any UK/European exam is better than any American exam in the eyes of Europeans:) )
