For which departments is the preparatory foreign language training compulsory?

Preparatory foreign language training applies to the students of the departments where the language of instruction is fully English and to students of the undergraduate program in Spanish language and literature. Of the undergraduate students newly admitted to these departments, those who are not exempt (i.e., those who cannot present a proficiency certificate for the language in question which is accepted by the university) are to take the English/Spanish Placement Exam (DBS) administered before the beginning of the academic year. Students who cannot obtain the minimum score in the DBS exam are registered in preparatory class. Students who are successful in the DBS exam then take the English/Spanish Proficiency Exam (İYS). If they fail the İYS exam, they start their one-year foreign language preparatory training.
