No, Mitacs does not require applicants to submit language proficiency scores. However, applicants must have a strong working knowledge of the project’s language, which will be listed in the project description.
Host professors in Canada are encouraged to interview applicants via Skype, Zoom or Teams to determine their language proficiency. Applicants who do not demonstrate appropriate language proficiency may have their applications revoked at the discretion of Mitacs.
Please note that some international partners may require a language proficiency score and may collect this directly from students.
