Marmara University students who have begun the learning process for foreign language
courses (English, French, German or Arabic) in foreign student preparatory classes
or in programmes in which they have been enrolled, or who have completed this process
through other means and who believe that they have attained the necessary learning
results have the right to enter the relevant exemption exam. Students who attain
passing grades from these exams will be exempt from the relevant lesson in the curriculum
and this will be recorded on the student’s transcript.
The courses taken by students in the higher education system of Turkey or in higher
education systems in foreign countries which have equivalency in Turkey, if so desired
and if documented, will be evaluated by the Adjustment Committee; the decision of
this committee is final. Those students who are judged as having attained the necessary
outcome from these courses will be exempt from the courses and this will be recorded
on the student’s transcript.
Students who have graduated from first cycle programmes can be placed in programmes
that are a continuation of their earlier programme upon taking the Vertical Transfer
Exam (DGS), implemented by ÖSYM. However, these students must take and pass the
“Preparation for Graduate Studies” programme before beginning the third year of
their first cycle programme.
In the scope of transition between short cycle and first cycle programmes, double
majors, minors and the directorate of the principles for transfer between institutions
will be carried out according to the principles set out by the University Senate;
the direct transfer of students between equivalent programmes of other institutions
will be accepted from other institutions of higher education in compliance with
the principles set out by the University Senate. Again, in keeping with the same
principles, if the student has fulfilled the necessary conditions, they will have
the right to register in double major or minor programmes.
In the Turkish higher education system, certificates attained from apprenticeship,
industry and similar areas will not be accepted for proof of exemption from courses.
