12 SECTION 2 GETTING TO KNOW KOÇ UNIVERSITY 2.1 GENERAL INFORMATION Mission Koç University was founded in 1993 as a private, non-profit institution of higher education and is supported by the financial resources of the Vehbi Koç Foundation. The mission of the University, which entered its fourteenth academic year in 2007, is to produce the most capable graduates possible by providing a world-class education, to advance the frontiers of knowledge and to contribute to the benefit of Turkey and humanity at large. The university has based its educational program on the principle of creative teaching/participatory learning. Koç University s medium of instruction is English. Degree Programs Degree programs are offered by the College of Sciences, the College of Humanities and Social Sciences, the College of Administrative Sciences and Economics, the College of Engineering, the Law School, the School of Health Sciences, the Graduate School of Business, the Graduate School of Sciences and Engineering and the Graduate School of Social Sciences. Undergraduate Degrees Graduates of the four-year undergraduate programs in History, Sociology, Psychology, Economics, Business Administration, and International Relations are awarded BA degrees. Those in Computer Engineering, Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Industrial Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Chemical and Biological Engineering, Molecular Biology and Genetics, Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, and Nursing receive BS degrees. The Law School awards four-year bachelor s degrees. Unlike most other universities in Turkey, all undergraduates at Koç University go through a core-program of liberal arts courses in their first two years of study before specializing. Graduate Degrees Koç University s graduate programs are among the best in Turkey. The Graduate School of Business offers MBA and MS in Finance programs, one-year Executive MBA and Ph.D. in Business. The Graduate School of Social Sciences offers Master of Arts programs in Pschology, Anatolian Civilizations and Cultural Heritage Management, Comparative Studies in History and Society, Economics, and International Relations. The Graduate School of Social Sciences also offers Ph.D. in International Relations and Pschology. The Graduate School of Sciences and Engineering offers two-year MS degrees in Chemical and Biological Engineering, Electrical-Computer Engineering, Industrial Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Mathematics, Physics, Materials Science and Engineering, and Computational Sciences and Engineering. The Graduate School of Sciences and Engineering also offers PhD degrees in Electrical Engineering, Computer Engineering, Industrial Engineering and Operations Research, Chemical and Biological Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Mathematics, Physics, Materials Science and Engineering, and Computational Sciences and Engineering. 12

13 English Language Center (ELC) Serving 70-75% of the University s incoming students, the ELC prepares students for the demands of University-level academics in an all-english environment. In Turkey, many universities, as well as middle schools and high schools, have similar programs known as hazırlık (preparation) in their respective language of instruction. After being admitted to Koç University, students must demonstrate English proficiency by passing a standardized set of exams called TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language) and TWE (Test of Written English), which the ELC administers in September. Students who fail to attain the required scores enter the ELC and are then placed within eight levels based on the Michigan Placement Test. Exit criteria are based on a student s TOEFL score, TWE score, ELC grade point average (GPA) and the ELC director s recommendation. Differing from the University s degree programs, the ELC s academic year is divided into four, seven-week tracks and two four-week summer tracks. Students may exit the ELC after track 2 (January), track 4 (June), track 5 (July) or track 6 (August). Students who exit in January (about 30%) elect to enter either (1) their freshman year as an irregular student or (2) a transition program, which offers two advanced ELC courses and two freshmenlevel courses. For more information about the ELC, visit its website at: Location Koç University moved to its permanent campus in Rumeli Feneri in September The campus, built on 25 hectares at the summit of a wooded hill overlooking the Black Sea, is composed of 60 buildings: academic and administrative buildings, laboratories, a library, dormitories for 1244 students, and sports and social facilities, all the product of a meticulous integrated design. The School of Health Sciences is located in Nişantaşı, next to the American Hospital. 2.2 FACULTY Koç University started with 35 teaching faculty in Today, 272 faculty are employed at the University. The commitment to excellence in teaching and research that the University made from its inception is also reflected in the quality of the faculty. Of the faculty members, 97% have obtained their advanced degrees from prominent institutions in Western Europe and the United States, and most have taught at leading universities in the US. 13

14 2.3 KOÇ STUDENTS AND THE TURKISH SYSTEM OF HIGHER EDUCATION Undergraduate Students In accordance with the Turkish Regulations for Private Higher Education Institutions, students are placed in the undergraduate programs of Koç University according to their Student Selection and Placement Center Examination (ÖSS) scores. The ÖSS is a centrally administered examination, which is taken by all students seeking admission to universities in Turkey. Universities post the number of students that can be admitted to each college, school or department. After taking the exam, students rank their university and major preferences and are then placed in university programs according to their scores on the examination. Koç University admits approximately 700 students to undergraduate programs and 200 students to graduate programs each year. Graduate Students The students of the Graduate School of Business come from select universities in Turkey and abroad, and from a variety of backgrounds. For the graduate programs, the selection criteria are standardized test scores such as the TOEFL, LES and GMAT (for the MBA program) and the GRE (for other graduate programs), in addition to a personal interview. In all programs, the quality of work required from students is comparable to the work required of students in leading universities in the United States. 2.4 ACADEMIC CALENDAR The current academic calendar is available by clicking on Academics on the KU homepage. 2.5 UNIVERSITY FACULTY AND STAFF CONTACT INFORMATION An updated telephone list of faculty and staff is available on the F: drive which you will have access to, once your departmental secretary organizes computer access for you. You will find current telephone lists available in the appendix of this guide but please note that this is the list as was available in early August and so your own name won t even be there. Go to the following location on the F: drive for a regularly updated list: F:\SHARE\OGS\PHONE LIST 14

15 2.6 GETTING TO CAMPUS AND PARKING University Shuttle Services Koç University runs its own shuttle buses. The routes are Campus/Lojman, Campus/Sarıyer (but only to coincide with the sea bus), Campus/Siteler, Campus/Beşiktaş, Campus/Taksim, and Campus/4.Levent Metro. There are different schedules for workdays, weekends/holidays, and summer and semester breaks. These schedules and drop-off points can be found on the Koç website in the Campus Life section. The shuttle buses display the logo Gürsel (the name of the operating company) and should have a sign inside the front window that specifies their route. If unsure, you might verify the destination with the driver when you board. The shuttle you will need at first will most likely be the Campus/Lojman one. Campus/Lojman Shuttles will pick you up in front of your lojman if you are standing there (if you live in lojmans 1-6, you need to walk to the corner), and drop you off on campus in front of the main fountain or in front of the Sevgi Gönül Auditorium. When returning from campus, Campus/Lojman Shuttles will pick you up in front of the Sevgi Gönül Auditorium, as well as the clock bus stop. They will drop you off in front of your lojman. The Campus/Lojman shuttle is free. Dolmuş/Mini Bus Service Every 10 minutes a dolmuş service runs between campus and Sarıyer. The journey takes from 20 minutes to half an hour as the dolmuş visits other housing developments along the way. As of August 2009, the cost of this service is 1.40 TL. You can pick up the dolmuş at the clock bus stop on campus or alternatively at the main gate. Note that the dolmuş does not go to the lojman and so when returning to campus you will need to get off at the gate and walk from there. In Sarıyer, the dolmuş will take you as far as the dolmuş stop for Beşiktaş, (outside the doviz). The first dolmuş is scheduled to depart campus at 7.30am and the last one leaves Sarıyer at 11pm. This dolmuş service may also be used to travel between campus and the lojman but note that you still have to walk from the gate and you should expect to pay the minimum fare of 1 TL. See the map of Sarıyer in the appendix to see the pickup point for dolmuşes departing Sarıyer for campus. Taxi Services Cabs are available 24 hours a day. At the time of this writing, the taxi meter should start at 2.00 TL. The taxi meter should show which rate you are being charged. Day rates (gündüz) run from 6 am until midnight.

17 Official Paperwork Every newcomer should contact his/her faculty secretary to complete the procedures necessary for official paperwork. Official paperwork is processed by Human Resources, located in Room Z-15 (Ext.1506) of the Rektörlük Building. Turkish rules and regulations require different documents from Turkish and non-turkish citizens and their family members. Non-Turkish Citizens Non-Turkish citizens must obtain both a work visa and a residence permit. Work Visa: Work visas are obtained prior to arrival in Turkey through the closest Turkish embassy or consulate. 1. After a new employee signs his/her work contract, the appropriate department secretary will a work visa information request form to him/her.

18 An accompanying spouse or child needs to submit his/her visa application together with the new faculty member s work visa application in order to obtain an accompanying visa.

The muhtar provides a residence document called İkametgah Senedi, which is the registration document of the local authorities proving that you live at the specified address. Health Insurance 19

20 Health insurance can be bought through the University. Monthly premiums will be deducted from your salary. For more information, contact Sevilay Akpınar (Ext.1264) in Human Resources. Human Resources will help with claims and correspondence with the insurance company. Note for ELC Faculty: This does not apply to ELC faculty. Refer to Section 3.10 Health Care for information on TieCare Insurance. 2.8 YOUR SALARY, LUNCH TICKETS, AND OTHER PAYMENTS Comptroller s Office and Initial Paperwork Comptroller s Office: Mr. Hasan Taşdemir (Ext. 1611) and his staff are in charge of all work related to salaries, housing payments and the like. The following documents should be submitted to the Comptroller s Office through your faculty secretary. Different documents are required from Non-Turkish and Turkish citizens for the payment of salaries. Non-Turkish Citizens: 3 color passport-size photographs 1 copy each of work and residence permits Copy of passport An account number from Yapı Kredi (TL and USD) Turkish Citizens: Copy of retirement document (Emeklilik Cüzdan Kopyası) (if applicable) An account number from Yapı Kredi. (TL and USD) Social Security card (SSK Sicil Kartı) if available OR a photocopy of his/her ID 3 color passport-size photograph Salaries Salaries are automatically deposited into each employee s Yapı Kredi campus branch account on the last business day of every month. No advance payment withdrawal will be given unless there is an extraordinary case such as marriage, hospitalization, death of a family member or birth of a child. Pay Stub and Utilities Invoice At the end of each month, you will receive a pay stub which details your deductions. You will also receive an invoice for your utilities (electricity, heating, and water). Refer to Section 2.10 for more details on your utilities invoice. Taxes USEFUL TIP: Using ATMs: Your salary can also be withdrawn from Garanti Bank, Akbank, Vakıfbank and Dışbank ATM machines with your Yapı Kredi ATM card and pin number. Look for an ATM with an Altin Nokta symbol on it. 20

21 The tax law in Turkey is somewhat complicated and different from that of other countries such as the United States. Net salary can vary from month to month because the tax is based on the cumulative salary paid to date. Typically, salaries quoted in contracts are gross amounts per month. Lunch Tickets and Sodexo Tickets Every month, each employee is provided with lunch tickets. Those who do not wish to use their lunch tickets may ask for monthly shopping tickets called Sodexo. These are special tickets that can be used to pay for food at many fast food restaurants and other more up-market restaurants that display a Sodexo sticker. Some more upscale restaurants accept Sodexo tickets although the sticker is not displayed. You can ask by saying Sodexo geçiyor mu? If you find yourself not getting the opportunity to eat out very much, then you could use your tickets to buy everyday household items in a couple of stores in Sarıyer. Each year, at the end of December many faculty members rush to dispose of their remaining Sodexo tickets by stocking up on detergent, toothpaste, olive oil etc. These local shop owners think nothing of a faculty member turning up with 500TL worth of tickets and leaving with cart loads of stuff. One such place is Cabbarlar Market, on the right side of Sarıyer main street as you approach the stop for dolmuşes to take you back up to campus. PLEASE NOTE: When Sodexo tickets are issued, they are valid only for the current year. This is for a calendar year (as opposed to the academic year) and so by the 31 st December 2009, you should try to ensure that you have used up all those issued to you for the Fall semester. In the past, November and December Sodexo bore an expiry date for the following year, but in recent years tickets issued have tended to be valid only for the year in which they were issued. Using An Expense Account When charging things to an expense account, the receipts for the expenses incurred in Turkey should be made out to Koç University, Rumelifeneri Yolu, Sarıyer. The tax number is Sarıyer Vergi Dairesi No Credit card slips for international and national trips are not accepted as receipts. (Please also ask for an invoice or a receipt with the slip). Travel Reimbursement All official travel expenses must be itemized, documented and submitted to the Comptroller. Each travel request must be approved and signed by the appropriate administration officer on the travel and expense forms provided by your faculty. Copies of the approved documents must be given to the Dean s Office, who will submit them to the Comptrollers Office in order to give advance travel pay. 21
