Details

  • This summer, the High School Summer Academy will be held in two periods and students will be able to choose from the following camp options. A student can choose a camp from each period or choose a camp from only one period:
  • All courses will be taught in English or Turkish (based on the camp option chosen) by Koç University faculty members and teaching assistants.
  • Grading on courses will be as follow: “Completed”, “Completed Successfully” and “Completed with Distinction”. Also all students who completed the program with required attendance will receive “Participation Certificate”.
  • In addition, students will attend seminars by our faculty members –called “Meeting with Faculty Hour”- covering various programs offered by our university which will give students an opportunity to observe different applications in these fields. Also, students will participate in the "Meeting Time with KU Students", in which one undergraduate student from each department will attend and talk about their experiences.
  • Students will be able to take sports lessons with a professional instructor on certain days of the weekdays.
  • Students will be able to join different activities and/or games in the evenings during the program.
  • Students will be matched with mentors, who are full-time undergraduate students of Koç University. Mentors will help students with any questions they may have regarding the program and university rules.
