ENTRANCE REQUIREMENTS3.1. Entrance Requirements for Undergraduate StudiesThe Department accepts each year a maximum of 80 students for undergraduate studies,depending on its resources for teaching. Individuals wishing to study English language andliteratrure as undergraduates in the Department are required to have completed their lyceeeducation or its equivalent successfully and to have obtained enough points from theuniversity entrance exam. This exam is organized centrally and annually by the StudentSelection and Placement Centre (ÖSYM) and the students are placed by the same centre intodepartments according to rank order of the points they have obtained. The undergraduatestudents are not required to take any other exam before registering for study in theDepartment.3.2. Entrance Requirements for Masters StudiesEntrance to graduate master studies in the Department is conditional upon the satisfaction of
  6. 6. several criteria. The Department organizes both written and oral exam for the applicants totest the level of their academic performance in English language, literature and culture andtheir general awareness of current issues. However, only those holding a bachelors degree canapply for postgraduate masters studies in the Department. These individuals are required tohave obtained a minimum of 45 points from the Graduate Study Exam (LES), and theminimum grades specified by the Institute of Social Sciences from the foreign languageproficiency exam(s). Individuals who fail to provide documentary proof of the level of theirproficiency in the English language can take the foreign language exam organized by theUniversity or they may be granted one year of leave to improve their knowledge of a foreignlanguage in programmes organized again by the University, provided that they have passedthe Departmental written/oral entrance exam.3.3. Entrance Requirements for Doctoral StudiesThe criteria set for acceptance for masters studies apply with some modification foracceptance to doctoral studies in the Department. Only individuals holding a masters degreecan apply for doctoral studies in the Department. These individuals are again required to haveobtained a minimum of 45 points from Graduate Study Exam (LES), and passing grades fromthe foreign language proficiency exam(s) in a second foreign language (German, French, orItalian).4. STUDENT ASSESSMENT METHODS AND GRADING SYSTEM4.1. Student Assessment MethodsUndergraduate students’ performance is graded on the basis of at least two midterms and afinal examination. The midterms and additional in-term assignments (research papers, oralpresentations and quizzes) have a 50% weight in the evaluation, while the final examinationhas the other 50% weight. In compliance with the University’s statutes, graduate students(both MA and PhD), while taking pre-thesis required courses, have to sit for 2 mid-terms anda final examination for each course they take. Additionally, each student is required to presentminimum 2 research papers and other work required by the course instructor. Moreover, PhDstudents have, before a committee of 5 full professors, to take a comprehensive qualificationexamination (both written and oral) upon their completion of the required total credits beforethey proceed to the writing of the thesis, which may take more than 4 semesters.4.2. Grading SystemThe grading system as defined by the University regulations rests on points and theirequivalents in grades and academic scores. Though the same system applies for bothundergraduate and graduate studies, the passing grade is set differently, as shown in thefollowing charts. In addition, the grading system does not attach qualitative labels(outstanding, excellent, very good, etc.) to the passing grades and their equivalents in scores.Grading System for Undergraduate StudiesPoints Grade Score Result90-100 A1 4.0 Successful 85-89 A2 3.5 Successful 75-84 B1 3.0 Successful 70-74 B2 2.5 Successful 65-69 C1 2.0 Successful 60-64 C2* 1.5 55-59 D1* 1.0 50-54 D2* 0.5 0-49 F3 0.0 Failed in the final examination F2 0.0 Failed to attend the final examination

Students who have the general academic degr lessthan 1.8 for two times repeatedly must review the whole year. However, the students thuspassed a course are permitted to repeat the same course in order to increase their grades, inwhich case it is the last grade that counts.Grading System for Graduate StudiesPoints Grade Score Result90-100 A1 4.0 Successful, (both masters and Ph.D students)85-89 A2 3.5 Successful, (both masters and Ph.

STRUCTURE OF THE DEGREE PROGRAMMES IN EFFECT5.1. The Structure of the Undergraduate ProgrammeThe curriculum for undergraduate studies defines a single programme based on course work.These courses are of four types: university common compulsory courses, departmentalcompulsory courses, intra-departmental elective courses and extradepartmental electivecourses.a) University common compulsory courses comprise those with course codes AİT(Atatürk’s Principles and Revolutions), TKD (Turkish Language), and Foreign Language.The first two sets of these courses have to be taken by all students registered with the
  8. 8. university and the credits gained are not included in the minimum total credits required forgraduation. The foreign language courses (English, French or German) have to be taken by allstudents at the preparatory year and the credits gained are included in the minimum totalcredits required for graduation. However, the students can take exemption exams for eachcourse and the successful students are granted the full grades they obtained. Erasmusexchange students are exempt from these foreign language courses.b) Departmental compulsory courses comprise those courses which are offered by theDepartment and which all the undergraduate students must take in order to graduate. Thereare some compulsory courses in the present curriculum which yield a total of 88 credits.c) Departmental elective courses comprise those courses which are in the Department’scourses catalogue but may not be offered every academic year.d) Extra-departmental elective courses comprise a fixed list of courses which are in factoffered by other departments to their own students but which English language and literatureundergraduates are permitted through an interdepartmental agreement to take as electives. It isentirely left to the students to take any of the courses thus determined. The Departmentactively encourages the students to adopt an interdisciplinary approach in their studies with aview for their future professional career and academic interests.5.2. The Structure of the Graduate ProgrammesThe degree programmes for graduate studies combine course work with the writing of athesis. However, there are some differences between the structure and the requirements of themasters and doctoral programmes.a) Masters studies: For an MA student, to receive the degree of MA in English Language andLiterature or British Cultural Studies, s/he must take minimum seven courses (equivalent ofminimum 21 credits, ) in the relevant programme over a period of 2 semesters (usually 4courses in Autumn and 3 in Spring) plus a non-credit seminar course on a special subjectrelated to the student’s prospective thesis. Upon the completion of the 21-credit preliminarycourses, the student is required to submit, under his/her supervisor’s advice, a thesis proposalwhich is reviewed and evaluated by the Department Academic Council and, if approved, sentto the Institute. The thesis must be completed over a period of 2 semesters (if needed thisperiod can be extended up to 2 semesters), and, upon the completion of the thesis and incompliance with the regulations, the student submits the thesis for a viva. The thesis is thenevaluated by a committee of 5 examiners (at least one of them is an external examiner),proposed by the Academic Council of the Department and appointed by the AcademicAdministrative Council of the Institute. If the examiners approve of the thesis and accept it,the student is admitted to a viva and, upon his/her successful performance, is recommendedby the examiners to the Institute for the conferment of the degree of MA.b) Doctoral studies: For a PhD student, to receive the degree of PhD in English Languageand Literature or in British Cultural Studies, s/he must preliminarily take minimum sevencourses (equivalent of minimum 21 credits) over a period of three semesters in the relevantprogramme and fulfil all the academic requirements. Upon the successful completion of thesecourses, the student is then required to take a comprehensive written and oral examinationconducted by a committee of 5 examiners, at least one of whom is external. If the studentpasses this examination, s/he is then required to submit a thesis proposal prepared under theguidance of his/her supervisor, which s/he must defend before a committee of 3 members
  9. 9. including the supervisor and acting as the Thesis Supervision Committee. Upon theacceptance by the committee of the proposal, the student proceeds with the thesis research andwriting, which takes minimum 4 semesters (extendable for 4 semesters). Upon thecompletions of the thesis, a committee of 5 examiners, at least one of whom is external, isappointed by the Institute’s Academic Administrative Council upon the recommendations ofthe Department’s Academic Council. Each examiner independently reads and evaluates thethesis and prepares a detailed report for joint evaluation prior to the viva. At the jointevaluation session the examiners discuss the individual reports and reach a joint resolutionwhich may be “Accepted” or “to be revised” or “rejected”. If the examiners accept the thesisand approve of its academic quality, they then admit the student to a viva which usually lastsover an hour and comprises a wide range of questions related to the thesis and its relevantsubjects. If the examiners find the student successful in the viva they recommend him/her tothe Institute for the conferment of the degree of PhD.5.3.
