While some schools have courses that do not require a GRE score, some others waive-off GRE for candidates who have an exceptionally high GPA and experience in the field.Some graduate programmes at the College of Environmental Design at UC Berkeley do not require international candidates to submit GRE test scores, though, domestic students have to submit the same. Also, Columbia University has listed GRE/GMAT as optional requirement for Executive Master of Science in Strategic Communications. In this article, students can check the list of university offering Masters without GRE.
A few courses and their universities offering Masters without GRE are listed below.
Computer Sciences is a sought after course among candidates world over. And, GRE scores are mandatory at most schools. However, not all universities require applicants to submit GRE score. For example, Oxford University does not require a GRE score, but high academic background of first class or higher second class undergraduate degree in Computer Science. The schools listed below are some of the top universities offering Masters without GRE.
