Ph.D. Qualifying Examination should be passed to carry out thesis work, as details are provided in the guidebook (the previous version is available at this link). Note the following updates between the two versions regarding the Major Oral Examination and Minor Exam.

  1. Major Oral Examinations' scope is extended as described in this guidebook (in Turkish).
  2. Ph.D. students who are admitted starting from Fall 2020/21 are no longer required to take a Minor Exam. See the Ph.D. Minor Regulations for the updated regulations regarding minor areas.
  3. See Ph.D. Qualification Committee Decision Report for updated information on adaptation of the Ph.D. students admitted before Fall 2020/21 term.
  4. Exemption rules for satisfying the Minor conditions can be found here
  5. The tentative course schedule for graduate courses in the academic years of 2020-2021 and 2021-2022 can be found hereImportant note: The list of courses is presented for the general planning of doctoral students. The opening of the listed courses depends on the decision of the Department Board. Adding courses to the list or their removal is possible. Please check the list at the beginning of each term.
