Educational Activities Decisions on 2021-2022 Academic Year Fall Semester
1. In line with the decisions of the Presidential Cabinet and the Council of Higher Education, it has been decided to switch to face-to-face education in formal programs at our university, starting from the fall semester of the 2021-2022 academic year.
2. Face-to-face education will be supported by blended (hybrid) education practices.
3. Some training activities will be carried out completely face-to-face, some will be carried out completely online, and some will be carried out with blended training applications (both face-to-face and through distance education).
4. Which educational activities will be carried out face-to-face, remotely or in a blended manner will be determined by our deans and directorates according to the conditions of each program and will be shared on the Student Affairs Information System (OBIS). As a general rule, all applied courses will be conducted face-to-face, theoretical courses will be conducted face-to-face and online, and our students will be given the right to choose as much as possible.

Our students will be given the opportunity to complete up to 40% of the total ECTS credits of the courses required for graduation in a program by choosing from the courses to be taught via distance education. For example, our students will be able to complete up to 96 ECTS credits, which corresponds to 40% of the 240 ECTS credits required for graduation in a 4-year program, by choosing from the online courses offered to them for 4 years.
