Admissions

As of September 2020, the Department of English will no longer offer formal concentrations in Nineteenth-Century Studies (NCS) or Medieval and Early Modern Studies (MEMS). Students interested in these concentrations are still encouraged to apply and will benefit from our faculty members' teaching and research expertise in these areas.

Applications must be complete by January 15; this includes referee letters, which can take anywhere from a few days to a few weeks to process. Late applicants may be considered, but their chances of admission are significantly decreased. 

We accept a maximum of 15 MA students and 3 PhD students each year for September admission.

Please note that information on these pages is subject to change. Check the UVic Calendar or contact the Graduate Secretary to verify details.
