Important remarks about course selection:

Please not that  Virtual Exchange Incoming Application Form is required for only collecting requests for Virtual Exchange at Koç University. To be able to enrol in courses, students who would like to attend virtual exchange at KU are required to make course planning and enrolment after they receive their user name and password for logging in Koç University Academic Information System, called KUSIS.

For KUSIS, your user name and password will be created by Koc University UNIC Mobility Hub team following the deadline of completing the application form. Once your credentials are ready, you will be informed by Koc University UNIC Mobility Hub.

We would like to emphasize that course planning and course enrolment are two separate processes. Students are expected to complete course planning step first and then course enrolment.

Important: Please keep in mind that, due to the prerequisites and reserved capacity, you may not take all the courses you plan.

Course planning and course enrollment are two separate processes. You should plan your courses before the course enrollment. By doing that, you will be able to see if your courses overlap or if there are any prerequisites, etc.
