COOPERATIVE EDUCATION

The first and only in Turkey

In the TOBB ETU, each education year is divided into three equal parts: Fall, Spring and Summer. 3 Term Education Program is not practiced in any other university in Turkey. The purpose of this program is to improve our students' work experience before they get their license degree. All students join the cooperative education program three times before graduation and graduate with nearly 1 year of work experience. At TOBB ETU, our students use 4 years of learning time efficiently, work harder.

3 Term Program

After our undergraduate students have passed the compulsory English preparatory class, they take 5-term before they join the cooperative education program. The 3-term education program aims to ensure that TOBB ETU students are as well-equipped as possible for their first work experience and uses summer time more efficiently.

The summer term in our university is an ordinary period so there is no separate summer school program. No additional payment is required for the summer term. As a result of the three-term academic year, our students have the chance to graduate earlier with more experience than their peers. When students graduate in the Spring term of their last academic year, one third of their annual tuition is paid back.
