Exchange Programs

Koç University Office of International Office (OIP) avails a wide range of opportunities for the exchange. Outgoing students who are willing to take courses at undergraduate level education programs of other universities in Turkey or abroad should follow the Course Equivalency Procedure (CEP). CEP ensures a safe credit transfer for the courses taken in the exchange. CEP is valid for the courses taken by the OIP or by your own means.
