English Language Requirements

Navitas Professional internship programs are designed for domestic and international students and graduates. You will need to have a certain level of English language proficiency before you can apply for one of our internship programs.

A widely accepted international measurement of English language skills for academic purposes is the International English Language Testing System (IELTS).

To be eligible for Navitas Professional's internship programs, you must provide evidence of English language proficiency (IELTS 6.0 or equivalent) or be a native English speaker.
