English For Turkish Programmes (ING)

Back

Isik University is an English Medium Instruction (EMI) institution, which means that in four of its five faculties, instruction in most academic programmes is conducted in English. The primary purpose of the School of Foreign Languages (SFL) is to develop and strengthen the academic English language skills for those students who will study in an EMI programme at the University. However, the intent of the ING Programme is to teach general English to Isik University students who are enrolled in Turkish medium programmes. Students in those programmes are required to take the ING sequence of courses which are general and not academic English. The ING programme is divided into two courses (i.e. ING 101 & ING 102) which are taught over two semesters – 12 weeks of teaching per semester (with 2 weeks dedicated to assessment) with four class hours per week, for a total of 48 teaching hours per semester.
