3) English Language Standards for Arbitration Training Courses
Prime Dispute welcomes applications from international candidates for
our Arbitration programmes.
Prime Dispute's Arbitration programme is delivered in English, including all associated services relating to our courses. Candidates should, therefore, meet minimum language standards. Candidates should have achieved a standard that is, as a minimum, equivalent to the International English Language Testing System (IELTS) level 7 or a score of 94-101 in the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) system. Prime Dispute will not require any evidence of this prior to enrolment to the course. However, it is emphasised that candidates who do not have this standard of English are likely to be at a disadvantaged throughout the process.
