Free of charge Turkish Language Courses for IAU Erasmus+ Incoming students

Everyone who has ever been abroad for a study exchange knows: the first weeks are the hardest ones. Especially at the beginning of an international educational experience, most of us feel a bit awkward to actively use the new language. The unusual challenge to organize your university matters, accommodation conditions or to buy daily life stuff speaking another language is often complicated and needs some practice.

Fortunately IAU Erasmus+ Office is aware of this fact and has organized in cooperation with AYDIN TÖMER teachers a language and culture preparation programme for the Erasmus+ Incoming students as follows:

During the Fall Semester Orientation Programme: a Free Intensive Certificate Based Turkish Language Course with 4 ECTS (all students are automatically enrolled for it prior to their arrival)
