Information for the Incoming Exchange Students


Welcome to Koç University

Koç University welcomes approximately 200 exchange students each academic year and the Exchange Office provides help for the exchange students in every way to make their time in Istanbul an unforgettable one.

We are thrilled to be a part of your academic life and offer a great opportunity to discover Turkish culture. Even though exchange students are with us for only one or two semesters, KU embraces all its exchange students as its own and provides them with all resources and opportunities available to local KU students. This, of course, also means that KU exchange students are subject to the same rules and regulations as our local students.
