    For Carleton University, specifically, an overall IELTS score of 6.5 with no band lower than 6 is required to be admitted without any ESL language requirements. If you score between a 5.0 or 6.0 with no band lower than 4.5, you can still be admitted to most of our degree programs and you will just have to complete some ESL courses alongside your degree courses.
