- English language proficiency exam score
Since English is the medium of instruction at Koç University, it is essential that you demonstrate competence in the language. Students who submit a valid English Proficiency Exam Result and/or students who completed the last 3 years of high school education in a country where the official language is English (as recognized by the Turkish Higher Education authorities) will be exempted from attending the English Language Center (ELC) and will directly begin their undergraduate courses. However, it is not sufficient to have proficiency in English.
Applicants are expected to satisfy the minimum acceptable score or diploma grade for one of those exams or diplomas listed in Acceptable Exams and Diplomas and Minimum Eligibility Scores and Grades
. Please see our English Language Preparatory program
Note: IELTS is not currently accepted in Turkey (2019). Pakistan and Nigeria are not on the list of countries where English is the official language according to the Turkish Higher Education authorities and therefore are not exempt from providing a valid original English Proficiency test score report during enrollment (if offered admission) or taking the Koç University Institutional English Test.
