Welcome!

Welcome to the University of Victoria English Graduate Students’ Society (EGSS) website.

EGSS Logo

This website is designed to keep you informed about official EGSS business and the various social and academic events sponsored by the EGSS.

In conjunction with this website, and in coordination with the English department, the EGSS also maintains an active Facebook group for the department’s graduate program. It is a private group, available to current graduate students and faculty members in the department.

The EGSS also has a Twitter feed, @uvicegss. Be sure to follow us for the latest news.


The EGSS is grateful for the financial support of the GSS, without which we would not be able to facilitate the many academic and social events that our graduate students enjoy every year. We would also like to thank the individual members of the GSS for continuing to support and advocate for graduate students in our department and across the university.
