Do I still need a TOEFL if I am from an English-speaking country, or if I have studied for my master’s degree in an English-speaking country?
As the website indicates, if you are a native speaker or studied in English for your BA or MA, you do not need a TOEFL or other proof.

My TOEFL has expired, can I still submit it?
An expired copy will do. In case we need an updated one, we will let you know individually after reviewing the documents.
In my country, the next TOEFL exam date is after your application deadline. Can I send the exam results after the deadline?
Yes, you can. In case we select you for the programme, it will be conditional on you passing the English language threshold.
