Language Requirements

Waterloo's English-language requirements are separate from the Grade 12 English course (or equivalent) that is required for admission to most programs at Waterloo.

To be exempt from these requirements, you must have studied full time in an English-language school system for the 4 most-recent years before beginning your studies at the University of Waterloo.

If you do not meet the requirements, you will be considered for entry into Waterloo’s English-language pathway program: Bridge to Academic Success in English (BASE).
