But fear not, because there are fully funded international scholarships available for your next degree – whether it’s a Bachelor’s, Master’s, or PhD – without the requirement of an IELTS exam.
First up on the list is the Japanese MEXT Scholarships, which are currently open for online applications for all degree programs for international students in 2023. The good news is that they do not require applicants to take the IELTS exam, saving you both time and money.
Next, we have the Chinese Government Scholarships offered at 270+ Chinese Universities, all without an IELTS requirement for international students interested in studying undergraduate, postgraduate, or doctoral degree programs. China also offers high paying postdoc fellowships and job positions, making it an attractive option for many.
In addition to this, many Chinese universities accept alternative English language proficiency tests if you can provide any IELTS alternative test report, such as TOEFL, PTE, Duolingo, or CAE. They also accept English language proficiency tests from your previous university if your last degree was taught in English or Chinese.
If none of these options suit your needs, there’s also the Malaysia International Scholarships (MIS) without an IELTS requirement for international students. This scholarship is open to those with a CGPA of 3 or more in fields such as IT, forestry, arts and humanities, social sciences, medical, engineering, pharmacy, construction, management, agriculture, journalism, economics, or business related fields.
