Koç University International Summer Programs

About the Program

Focusing on recent international migration situations, Koç University offers students the chance to study the main issues raised by the cross-border movements of people through their 3-week summer program on International Migration and the Crisis. With the program's theme being: The Basic Instinct: Survival, students are introduced to current trends in migration flows, the different types of human mobility and the dynamics behind them, and the governments’ responses to the social, political, and legal challenges raised by international migration.

Tuition and Fees

There are a limited number of exchange spaces available, which will be assessed on a competitive basis. Under exchange, students pay UBC tuition for the number of credits they enroll in for this program. Before attending the program, you will be asked to disclose how many credits you are taking in the summer program so that you can be assessed the appropriate tuition. If you enroll in more credits than you claim then you will be assessed for the additional tuition.

Students may opt to pay tuition directly to the partner institution (study abroad option), or if not selected to use an exchange space, students will pay tuition directly to the partner institution.

The partner institution may charge other program fees such as application fees, housing costs, field trips, cultural activities, or other costs associated with hosting this program. Please check the partner webpage for details of program costs.

Our team will review your application(s) and if successful, will nominate you to apply to the partner institution(s). 
  6. Pay the Go Global Fee when prompted, after the application deadline.
