McGill has never tested widely for English proficiency.
The Faculty of Education, as of this year, will require pre-service teachers
an English proficiency test before graduating.
Faculties such as Social Work that grant professional degrees, test for
French competence, not English.
Most faculties require students to complete one
communications-in-the-discipline course before graduating.
The Faculty of Management requires two communications courses--one
"academic" early in the program; one "professional" in the final year. (Some
students enter with advanced standing or do well enough on a placement test
to bypass the first course.)
The Writing Centre at the Faculty of Education provides these Communications
courses, both day and evening, campus wide, and also provides tutoring for
students who need to improve their English writing skills.
