Learning Outcomes

The learning outcomes of our English language program for English medium students have been designed within the framework provided by the Final International University Institutional Learning Outcomes,  and the National Qualifications Framework for Higher Education in Turkey, level 6 (http://tyyc.yok.gov.tr/?pid=33), which parallels Level 6 of the European Qualifications Framework (EQF), and the first cycle of the Qualifications Framework of the European Higher Education Area (QF-EHEA 1.Cycle).

The program is thus grounded within both local and international specifications. We have also adopted as specific benchmarks for our program:

  • The Common European Framework of Reference for Languages
  • The EAQUALS Quality Assurance framework and criteria for language school accreditation

Our program thus aims to provide our students with a language education that is internationally validated and of the highest possible quality.

In specific, the FIU English language curriculum aims to ensure that by the time students complete their formal sequence of required English language courses, they will have:

SFLO1
