English requirement for Teaching Assistance for Ph.D students

Postby namvuong » Thu Sep 20, 2018 7:20 am

I am applying to Ph.D programs of universities of America as an international student.

I currently have an 8.0 IELTS with 7.0 Speaking, and a TOEFL with lower points: Reading,Listening and Writing:20, Speaking 26

Usually the programs require the speaking point should be high if I want to become a TA, right? clearly my IELTS speaking is not high enough, but TOEFL speaking is. But the overall points of them have the reverse situation.

So can I submit the two certificate and become a TA (If i get admission, of course)? Thank u

I think 26 on speaking is enough for doing TA for any school, but it will not be sufficient for the general application since a lot of schools require total 100 points of TOEFL score. But I think your IELTS score is enough for applying, so you don't have to worry much about it. (Maybe use the IELTS score for the application and use the TOEFL score when you are admitted and going to be a TA.)
