Enrollment Procedure for Graduate Programs of the Department of English
Year 2017/18

The prerequisite for enrollment in any of the four graduate programs of the Department of English is a completed undergraduate program in English. There is no specific enrollment exam. All candidates who submit a valid certificate of a completed undergraduate program in English (a 3-year program in English language and literature) may be included in the ranking procedure.

Based on the ranking procedure, the Department of English enrolls a maximum of 140 students in four graduate programs as follows: a maximum of 20 students in the TEFL program, while the rest are equally divided between the remaining three programs in the following way:
        – Linguistics: max. 40 (with no more than 5 single major students);
        – Literature and Culture: max. 40 (with no more than 5 single major students);
        – Translation: max. 40 (with no more than 5 single major students);
        – TEFL: max. 20 (with no single major students).

The enrollment quota is therefore determined for each academic year according to the total number of eligible applicants (e.g. if the total number of eligible applicants is 110, the enrollment quota is 20 for the TEFL program, and 30 for each of the remaining three programs).

Apart from the admission procedure carried out at the Registrar’s Office (D-VII) from 25 to 27 September 2017, the applicants are also obliged to complete a Preference list, which is available in the Administration Office (B-010) of the Department of English, in order to rank their preferences for specific graduate programs at the Department, either as a single or a double major program. The form must be returned to the Administration Office. 

The Department will create a single ranking list of all candidates eligible for admission in any of the four graduate programs of the Department of English. The ranking is determined on the basis of candidates’ academic records (weighted GPA) achieved in their undergraduate program.

Note: Candidates from other universities must submit a certified transcript of grades (English Studies courses only). If the administration of their home institution does not provide them with a certified transcript of grades containing only English Studies courses, the candidates must underline, tick or mark in any way the English studies courses on the transcript.

Candidates are strongly advised to regularly check the homepage of the Faculty and the web page of the Department of English for news and updates.
