TOEIC (Test of English for International Communication)
The TOEIC test is an English language proficiency test for people whose native language is not English. It measures the everyday English skills of people working in an international environment. The scores indicate how well people can communicate in English with others in business, commerce and industry.

If you are interested in taking the test at IPU New Zealand or have any queries you can contact the TOEIC Administrator by emailing
