The programme offers a two year education. Before they start receiving education at this department, they study English for a year in preparatory classes in Aydin via the latest methodology and technological devices. The candidates are accepted by the regulation of OSYM held every year in Turkey. Totally 100 students are educated in the programme ( 50 for morning, 50 for evening classes). The students have to choose all the courses offered in the programme and get at least 60 (of 100) to pass the course. The students also have to complete a 30 day internship to get the degree. Internship is significantly important as we believe practice makes perfect.Thus, Students fulfill both vocational practice during the academic year and internship in summer.
