Two universities. Two degrees.

Students complete their first two years of study at their home university, and then complete a further two years of study at Waterloo, receiving a degree from each university.

Hear what our current student, Vincent, has to say about the French 2+2 program:

It is well-known that one's environment is significant for language learning. Canada's bilingual society is helping me improve my English and French levels quickly at the same time. In addition, the University of Waterloo has a quite complete French teaching system. It offers more diversified course selections which not only lead to progress, but also satisfy my interests. Therefore, I consider this exchange as a very worthy program.
