    If you have earned your university entrance qualification abroad, the transcripts and documents you submit with your application do not typically show how many years of language instruction you have completed. In that case, you must submit either a certificate from the school regarding the duration of the instruction, or a language certificate.
    In case of university entrance qualifications issued in Australia, the United Kingdom, Ireland,
    Canada, New Zealand, or the United States of America, or if you have a degree from any
    of those countries, you are not required to provide any further proof regarding your English language skills on the B2.
