Dear Students,


I would like to welcome you to the Koç University English Language Center (ELC). This website has been designed to inform you of the mission, structures, and policies of the ELC. I hope that you will take the time to familiarize yourself with the information contained herein.


The mission of the ELC is to prepare Koç students for academic success at the university level. Since Koç is an English-medium university, we offer courses designed to enhance your ability to use English in the areas of speaking, listening, reading, and writing. We also help prepare students for the more general challenges and opportunities of university life. Our main goal is to provide students with the English-related skills, as well as the more general academic and personal skills, necessary to make the most of their experience as Koç students.


We wish you the best both here in the ELC and in your later academic pursuits, and ask that you bring to your ELC instruction the necessary commitment to ensure your academic success.


Frederick C. Reece

Director, English Language Center
