Koç University holds its student body to high standards. Students will benefit from their studies at KU most by striving to become “good learners”. A good learner works toward articulating his/her own academic interests.
We support the development of all of these skills in our students through a variety of services.
These services consist of:
- KOLT Tutoring Center (weekly tutoring sessions and reviews before exams),
- Conversation Circles
- UNIV 101 Seminars,
- Elective Seminars,
- Customized workshops for specific courses,
- Individual consultation with KOLT members.
KOLT Tutoring Center offers free individual tutoring services to all Koç University students. Click here to view schedule.MORE
KOLT Conversation Circles aim to improve speaking and comprehension skills of students in the undergraduate program and the English Language College.MORE
