Proficiency certificates in modern languages

UCFV's Modern Languages Institute now offers proficiency certificates in several languages.

The intermediate certificate consists of successful completion of 12 UCFV credits (i.e., two years) in a single language: 101, 102, plus two second-year courses, with a minimum 2.33 GPA. At least 25% of the courses must be completed at UCFV. Students who already have the 101/102 component, i.e., Grade 12 level, will be able to have the first-year requirement waived.

Note: Advanced certificates are currently available in French and Russian only.

Students in any UCFV program who meet the stated requirements of any proficiency certificate may apply for the certificate by completing a graduation application, available at Admissions & Records, by April 1 (all requirements must be met by April 30).

Students in any UCFV program who achieve a GPA of at least 4.0 in all applicable language courses may apply for a certificate stating that they have completed the requirements “with distinction”.
