Language pathway (conditional offer) is available
Conditional English language proficiency admission:
If you are applying to a graduate program, have supplied an ELP test but and are slightly below the required score, conditional admission may be offered.
If you are applying with a sponsorship that includes funding for English language studies, conditional admission may be offered.

Academic background and requirement

1_ A four-year Honours Bachelor’s degree (or equivalent) in German Studies or a four-year Honours Bachelor’s degree in the Humanities and Social Sciences if evidence justifying admission is offered (with sufficient German proficiency; normally level B2). 2_ Minimum average of 78% overall in final two years. 3_ Students whose native language is neither English nor German and who have not taken their first degree in a program taught in either language will have their language skills assessed by the admitting university. 4_ While every student will be registered at both the University of Waterloo and the Universität Mannheim during the two-year program, students should apply to the university that they will consider their home-university, via that university’s application system. This means that Canadian students should apply to the University of Waterloo while German students should apply to the Universität Mannheim.
