Admission Procedure for Graduate Programs of the Department of English
Enrollment Procedure for the Graduate Programs at the Department of English
Academic Year 2023/24
The prerequisite for enrollment in any of the four graduate programs at the Department of English is a completed undergraduate program in English or its equivalent. 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. Students will be ranked according to the weighted GPA in their undergraduate program in English.
Based on the ranking procedure, the Department of English enrolls a maximum of 120 students in four graduate programs in the following way: a maximum of 20 students in the TEFL program, while the rest are equally divided between the remaining three programs:
– Linguistics: max. 33 (with no more than 5 single major students);
– Literature and Culture: max. 33 (with no more than 5 single major students);
– Translation: max. 34 (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).
The application and admission procedure for the graduate programs at the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, University of Zagreb in the academic year 2023/24 will be held fully online via the online application and admission procedure. No documentation will be accepted after the application deadline (September 23rd). Students who for whatever reason submit applications containing incomplete documentation will not have their applications considered and will not be able to enroll into the graduate programs at the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences in the academic year 2023/24.
As a part of the online application procedure, candidates are obliged to fill out the preference list form in which they will rank by preference the English Department graduate programs (from 1 to 5), which will become available in the online application on September 16th. Placement in the Department of English graduate programs in the academic year 2023/24 will be determined based on the preference list and according to the weighted GPA rankings. The preference list is binding, and it is not possible to change it after submission. Applications without the list of preferences will be considered incomplete.
Additionally, candidates who have not completed their undergraduate studies at the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences in Zagreb are obliged to e-mail a certified grade transcript with separate English Studies courses and their officially calculated weighted GPA to firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com by September 23rd, 2023, at noon (12:00). If their home institution does not issue certified grade transcripts containing separate English Studies courses, candidates must underline, tick or mark in any way the English studies courses on the issued transcript. Also, if their home institution does not calculate the weighted GPA for the English Studies courses, the candidate should note that information in the e-mail. Applications without separate (or marked) English studies courses on the transcript will be considered incomplete.
Candidates are strongly advised to regularly check the graduate application and admission homepage and the web page of the Department of English for news and updates.
