IHU Summer School Language Program application deadline extended

Ibn Haldun University Summer School’s language program application deadline extended until May 31st for all languages, due to intense interest. The program offers intensive instruction in modern Turkish, Ottoman Turkish, Persian, and Arabic to international undergraduate and graduate students, and to professionals.

The program, which will be held in the Süleymaniye Mosque complex between June 25 and August 17, aims to provide an immersive learning experience by combining its co-curricular activities with extracurricular activities. Some of these activities include field trips to historical sites and archives, conversation tables and study hours, movie screenings, cultural events, and, seminars by renowned scholars on Turkish history, politics, literature, and the arts.

Classes begin on June 25, 2018. Program end dates vary by course. The program offers credit transfer and each student who succesfully completes the course will be presented a certificate.

Applicants should fill out the necessary form and return it to the contact person for each language course along with a curriculum vitae, unofficial transcript (if the applicant is a student), copy of passport.

Limited number of scholarships

IHU Summer School Language Program offers a limited number of scholarships in different categories based on financial need and academic merit. It also offers discounted rates for students admitted to IHU graduate programs for Fall 2018. To be considered for scholarships, applicants should submit a recommendation letter from a faculty member or administrator.

Students start the program after a placement test to determine the level of their language knowledge. The 140 hours IHU Summer School Language Program course is equivalent to two full semesters of language instruction in a credit-based course.  The 70-hour option, on the other hand, is equivalent to one full semester of instruction.

Fees include tuition, course materials, lunch and program activities but exclude housing, international travel fares, passport and visa costs, and health/travel insurance. Students who need housing during the program, may easily get in touch with the IHU International Office for help.

The IHU Summer School Language Program, 2018, is coordinated and developed in collaboration with IHU School of Languages  and the Department of History.
