English is the language most widely used all over the world and besides providing a common ground for social, political, economic, scientific and technological communication, it is regarded  the global lingua franca ( common language for people from different cultures).  Thus, English language acquisition and practical skills have gained more importance.

In our university, the medium of instruction for many subjects is going to be English in the next academic year,  thereby students from various countries will be wellcomed besides our Turkish students. Our Foreign Languages and Prep School is looking forward with its experienced and equipped instructors to applying the most efficient approaches and methods for teaching you the language which you will need not only during your university education but also for following the professional developments in your fields of study and communicating in your social lives afterwards.
