Expanded flexibility in the use of non-curricular standardised tests by world-class universities has been a refreshing development in global admissions. This interactive panel session will explore, examine and assess ways in which widely adopted policies (particularly ‘score free’, ‘test optional’ and ‘test flexible’) have impacted international student enrolment at globally minded universities. We will share data-driven insights and perspectives from different institutions and regions.
