Proficiency certificates in Modern Languages

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

The intermediate certificate consists of successful completion of 12 UFV 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 UFV. Students who already have the 101/102 component, i.e., Grade 12 level, will be able to have the first-year requirement waived.

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

Students in any UFV 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”.
