The dream to study abroad is an exciting idea, and at the same time, we understand it can be intimidating with so many things to consider when trying to make the right choice. Choices like what type of program and in which location, to budgeting considerations, and what your plans are post-ILSC are sure to cross your mind. Ensuring you have answers to these types of questions is crucial in designing the experience that is right for you, your goals, and your future. Because there’s a lot of important elements to consider before making these decisions, ILSC has made the whole process one step easier by introducing our new PROLA (Pre-registration Online Language Assessment)
The new PROLA test comes with many benefits, the most important being that our test gives an accurate level assessment. This means that as a student, you know exactly where you stand from a language perspective, and how long it will take move into programs with other specific entry levels and requirements. The accurate level assessment also helps you to come up with your study length and financial plans more precisely. The PROLA test shows you where you are, so you can plan for where you want to be.
With our new online test, you can go through each step of the PROLA test from the comfort of your home or device of your choice; through a computer, tablet or smartphone!* Our new online test makes picking and choosing which programs and courses are right for you, as you will know your language level and what classes are offered to you, or how long it will take to reach your target language level – just one more way ILSC strives to be all about you! Now, all of the testing, including speaking, reading, and writing, can be done before you even board the plane. Let’s take a look at how it works:
Taking the PROLA test acts as the perfect tool to gauge your ILSC journey. Once you take the assessment and receive your results, you’ll have the information you need to determine the length of time you’ll need to study, and which courses and programs you should place your focus.

Once you’re ready to take a test, ILSC’s education partners in your country or our staff will send you an invitation, you’ll receive an invitation to your email with the link to take the test. Allow yourself approximately 75 minutes for the test so you have an adequate amount of time.
