Language Policy

Incoming Students and Staff Language Policy:

The International Academic Relations Office offers a special Turkish Language Course free of charge for incoming students each semester at beginner level. In this way, international students can adapt easily and quickly to the daily life in Turkey. The Office also provides language support for incoming staff upon request. We inform mobility participants about all the necessary language and cultural matters and guide them so that there are no misunderstandings. Erasmus office of our university provides language support for incoming students and staff in every possible way.

Outgoing Students and Staff Language Policy:
 
Most of our students who want to participate in the Erasmus mobility programme study English as their major and some of their classes are conducted in a foreign language. However, they must pass an exam in a given language in order to participate in Erasmus mobility. In order to improve our students' language skills the School of Foreign Languages offers Erasmus students guidance and practice in all four of the basic language skills of listening, speaking, reading and writing.
