The exam results are graded by the relevant head of the department on a pass and fail basis within three days following the exam and reported to the institute. (5) A student that was found successful in the comprehensive exam and already took all the required courses may be requested by the Doctoral Comprehensive Board to take an additional course(s) provided that the total credits of the additional courses do not exceed 1/3 of the total credits. Thesis Advisory Committee ARTICLE 39 (1) A thesis advisory committee is assigned, within one month, to a student who is successful in the comprehensive exam by recommendation of the concerned head of the department and approval of institute executive board as well as considering the opinion of the advisor. (2) The TAC is composed of three members, one being the thesis advisor of the student, one being from the related department/division within the University and the other one primarily from another higher education institution or another department/division of the institute. TAC is formed taking into account that its members have expertise in the area of the thesis and, especially for the interdisciplinary thesis works, the faculty members of the relevant discipline take part in the

16 committee. The co-advisor may also attend the committee meetings. The TAC members may be replaced in the terms following the formation of the committee by reasoned recommendation of the head of the department and approval of the institute executive board, considering the opinion of the advisor. (3) In the programs run together with other universities abroad, the co-advisor assigned by home institution (thesis advisor of the student in cases where the student is sent to complete his/her thesis work abroad) submit to the concerned head of the department a report that will constitute basis for the report of the TAC prior to the committee meeting. Thesis advisory committee reviews the report and incorporates it into the committee s report. Defense of the Thesis, Exhibition, Concert, Recital or Project Proposal ARTICLE 40 (1) Students successfully completing the comprehensive exam orally defends the thesis, exhibition, concert, recital or project proposal which comprises the purpose of the thesis work, the method and the future work plan within six months at the latest before the thesis advisory committee. The student submits to the committee members a written report about the thesis proposal at least fifteen days before the oral defense. (2) Defense of the thesis, exhibition, concert, recital or project proposal is open to all audiences. (3) After the defense of the thesis, exhibition, concert, recital or project proposal, the thesis advisory committee decides in absolute majority, whether the result is approval, revision or refusal. The concerned institute is notified of the decision of the thesis advisory committee latest within three days after the defense with an official exam report. (4) Students whose thesis proposal is not approved are entitled to choose a new topic and advisor. In such cases, a new advisory committee may be assigned. (5) For the students whose thesis proposals are approved, TAC convenes twice a year, once between January and June and once between July and December. The student submits a written report to the TAC members at least one month prior to their meeting date. In this report, a summary of the work covered thus far and the work plan for the next semester are given. The letter grade for the student s thesis work is determined as P or U by the TAC. Finalization of the Doctoral Thesis/Proficiency in Art ARTICLE 41 (1) After the final report of the thesis advisory committee stating the eligibility to take the thesis defense has been issued, students whose thesis works have been approved as completed must put the findings they obtained from the thesis/exhibition/concert/recital/project on paper in accordance with the thesis writing guidelines and orally defense the thesis or exhibition or project before the thesis advisory committee. (2) The dissertation to be prepared at the end of the doctoral program must meet at least one of the following criteria: Introducing an innovation in a scientific field, developing a new scientific method, or applying an already-known method to a new area. (3) For each thesis, ten faculty members are recommended to the institute executive board for the examining committee by the relevant head of the department considering their areas of expertise and opinions of the advisors. The institute executive board establishes the thesis examining committee based on the recommendations. In addition to the thesis advisory committee, the thesis examining

17 committee consists of five faculty members, at least one being from another higher education institution. Moreover, two substitute members are assigned, one from the university and the other from another higher education institution. (4) The examining committee members convene within two months at the latest as of the date they receive the thesis so as to have the student defend the thesis. The thesis defense comprises the presentation of the thesis work and a consecutive question and answer session. Substitute members are invited by the relevant head of the department to substitute for those committee member/members unable to attend the meeting with valid ground. The relevant institute executive board decides on the provisions that will apply to the examining committees unable to convene for the second time. (5) Examining committee members submit their evaluation reports about the thesis or the statement to the institute to be incorporated into the student s file prior to the thesis defend. (6) After the thesis/exhibition/concert/recital/project defense is completed, the examining committee decides in absolute majority, whether the result is approval, revision or refusal. The concerned institute is notified of the decision of the examining committee latest within three days with an official exam report. Students who are asked to review their theses after the defense make required revisions and defend the thesis once again before the same examining committee within six months at the latest. At the end of this period, students whose thesis are not approved in the first defense or in the second defense after necessary revisions have been made are given another thesis topic to work on. Students admitted to the doctoral program with an undergraduate degree but failed in the thesis defense are, upon request, entitled to a non-thesis Master s degree as per Article 36.4 of this Regulation hereby. Doctoral/Proficiency in Art Degree ARTICLE 42 (1) Students that have been found successful in the thesis defense and submitted, to the institute, at least three bound copies of the thesis/exhibition work or the project signed by the committee members within one month as of the date of the defense are entitled to a diploma with the name of the department/division written on it, provided that other requirements have been also met. Temporary certificate of graduation may be issued upon request until the issuance of diploma. (2) In order for the thesis to be formally acceptable, it is required to be written and reproduced in accordance with the thesis writing guidelines and satisfies the conditions stated in the guidelines concerning thesis delivery posted on the website of the institute and the thesis delivery guidelines posted on the website of the Higher Education Board.
