Language Requirements

Waterloo's English language requirements are separate from the Grade 12 English course (or equivalent) that’s 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 preceding the beginning of 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).
