  1. Course assessment is a medium to evaluate performance of each student. Quizzes, projects and presentations are regularly given by instructors of each course every two or three weeks in order to check the progress of each student. At the end of each level the average of quizzes, projects and presentations is taken to calculate the level achievement grade.
  2. Class participation grade is given by the class instructor(s) according to their observation throughout each level and the grade is submitted at the end of each level. Written assignments, speaking skills, homework, participation in class and class performance are the factors that make up the class participation grade.
  3. Attendance is regularly taken by instructors and considered in the calculation of the level achievement grade.
  4. Level Achievement Test consists of reading comprehension, writing, vocabulary, and grammar components and is administered at the end of each level.
  5. If the students fail to achieve an overall grade of 60 as Yearly Achievement Grade, at the end of the academic year they are eligible to attend the Summer school.
  6. Summer school grading policy is the same as academic year requirements. After an intensive program of 8 weeks the students need to achieve an overall grade of 60 at the end of the Summer school.
  7. Summer school is subject to additional payment of €600 (This amount is the tuition fee. Accommodation and other expenses are to be met by the student.)
  8. Students who fail to graduate from the Preparatory School at the end of the Summer school repeat their studies in English preparatory school program in the following academic year.
