Education and Teaching

International students are subject to the provisions of the Regulation for Associate and Bachelor’s Level Education and Teaching at GTU in terms of the matters regarding education and teaching.

In order to begin their undergraduate education, students are to first certify that their level of Turkish language is sufficient.

The Turkish language proficiency level of those students who are placed in programs at GTU is determined according to the certificate of success received from either Yunus Emre Institutes or Gebze Technical University Continuing Education Center (GTÜSEM).




1. (C1) or higher: The level of Turkish is sufficient.

2. Level (A) and (B): The level of Turkish is insufficient.


Students whose Turkish level is insufficient are deemed permitted for 1 year to learn Turkish. Of the students whose Turkish reaches the required level by the end of this period, those whose program’s medium of instruction is either Turkish or Minimum 30% English may directly start their undergraduate studies: Economics (Turkish-Medium Instruction), Geomatics Engineering (Turkish-Medium Instruction), City and Regional Planning (Turkish-Medium Instruction), Electronics Engineering (Minimum 30% English-Medium Instruction), Materials Science and Engineering (Minimum 30% English-Medium Instruction), Architecture (Minimum 30% English-Medium Instruction).

Those students who study in a program with 100% English-medium instruction are required to certify until they graduate that they have sufficient level of Turkish. These students may directly start their undergraduate studies even though their level of Turkish is not yet sufficient; however, they cannot graduate until they have certified within 4 years that their level of Turkish is sufficient.

Those students who study in programs with either Minimum 30% English-Medium Instruction or 100% English-Medium Instruction may directly start their undergraduate studies from the course stage provided that they pass the GTU English Proficiency Exam or certify that they have passed an equivalent English proficiency exam.

Those students who fail the GTU English Proficiency Exam or fail to certify that they have passed an equivalent English proficiency exam study in the English Language Preparatory Class first. At the end of the 1 permitted year that is granted to those international students whose level of Turkish is insufficient and are receiving education by their own means to level up their Turkish, if the student’s level of Turkish is still insufficient, they are permitted 1 additional year, and if they still cannot submit their Turkish proficiency certificate by the end of that additional year, they are disenrolled.

Students that are required to prove their proficiency in Turkish and/or English languages have a total of

two years to do so.
