Do I have to learn Turkish to study in IMU?

Yes, if you are admitted to a department where the language of instruction is Turkish (except for certain programs where language of instruction is 100% English). The proficiency levels in Turkish of the newly admitted international students are determined through the “Turkish Proficiency Exam for Foreign Students” administered by Istanbul Medeniyet University or according to the scores they obtained in a Turkish test administered by a Turkish Teaching Center (TÖMER) run by a Turkish university.

Candidates who are admitted to an undergraduate program without a Turkish proficiency certificate are exempt from their studies for one year to improve their Turkish proficiency levels and they can start their studies in their respective programs only after they retake and pass the Turkish proficiency exam following their training in a Turkish Teaching Center (TÖMER).
