Selection & Placement
The Minimum Requirements for Application to Exchange Programs are:
- A minimum GPA of 2.50/4.00 for undergraduates and a 3.00/4.00 for graduate students.
- In order to be able to apply to a specific partner university, the student must satisfy all requirements specified by that partner (such as language, GPA, etc).
- Undergraduate students must have completed at least two semesters and graduate students must have completed at least one semester at Koç University (excluding ELC).
Turkey scholarship students are allowed to participate to the exchange program, but they will not be receiving a scholarship from YTB during their exchange period. In order to participate to the program they should submit a commitment letter that they accept this situation.
Applicants will be ranked according to their "University Points", which will be calculated based on their academic GPAs and language proficiencies. For the details of these calculations, please attend at least one of the EXCHANGE information sessions given by our office.
Exchange Programs for fall terms can be applied to only during the First Placement process.
Students nominated in the First Placement who haven't submitted their commitment letters or who have lost their placement due to language/GPA requirements may reapply during the Second Placement process provided that they satisfy the requirements stated above.
Students who do not participate in their Global Exchange Program even though they previously submitted their commitment letters, gain -10 points when they make a new application to Global Exchange Program.
