There are a large number of English-language master's degrees available in universities across Europe. If you are planning to apply for a master's program which is taught in English, then you will need to provide proof of your English language abilities. One test used to measure language skills is the TOEFL, which you need to take before applying for a master's.

To illustrate the kind of TOEFL scores that are required to apply for master's programs in economics, finance, and business, we have compiled information on required scores for some of Europe's best universities.
