Students who participate in the UW MAGG-Warwick PAIS get the best that both programs have to offer and receive two degrees, each from prestigious and internationally recognized institutions. Students choose between two routes, beginning their studies at either institution first, and attending the other institution second. Students who begin in Waterloo receive credit with Warwick and complete a two-year degree program at Warwick in only one year.
