Admission Procedure for Graduate Programs of the Department of English
Enrollment Procedure for the Graduate Programs at the Department of English
Academic Year 2021/22
The prerequisite for enrollment in any of the four graduate programs at the Department of English is a completed undergraduate program in English or 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).
Apart from the online application and admission procedure, which closes on September 24 at 2 p.m., the applicants are obliged to complete and sign the preference list form in which they will rank by preference the English Department graduate programs (from 1 to 5) by the same deadline. Places on the Department of English graduate programs in the academic year 2021/22 will be awarded based on the preference list and according to the weighted GPA rankings. The form can be downloaded here. 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. The filled-out form should be sent to email@example.com with the following subject: “GRADUATE PROGRAMS – PREFERENCE LIST” by September 24.
Additionally, the candidates are obliged to submit a certified grade transcript with separate English Studies courses. 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. Applications without separate (or marked) English studies courses on the transcript will be considered incomplete.
N.B. The application and admission procedure to graduate programs at the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, University of Zagreb in the academic year 2021/22 will be fully online. Be aware of the acting Vice-Dean for Curriculum and Student Affairs’ decision that no documentation will be accepted after the application deadline (September 24, 2 p.m.). Students who, for whatever reason, submit applications containing incomplete documentation will not have their applications considered and will not be able to enroll into graduate programs at the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences in the academic year 2021/22.
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.
