Make-Up Exam announcement dated 18.06.2020

Dear students,

I would like to bring the following to your attention regarding the Make-Up Exams to take place between the month of June, and July 4th.

  1. You may take a single Make-Up Exam for any course, regardless of having taken that particular course before, or during the distance education period, to replace any midterm or semester final exam of Spring 2019-2020.
  2. You will be required to inform the instructor of that particular course regarding your exam of choice to be replaced by the Make-Up Exam that you wish to take, by e-mail.
  3. When this is the case, your Make-Up Exam grades shall overwrite the grades of your exam of choice as per your letter. Since the Senate resolution concludes that such grades are to be evaluated in favor of our students, your semester success grades will be assessed taking your Make-Up Exam grades into account, should you achieve any grade higher than the one obtained from your exam of choice as per your letter. However, if your Make-Up Exam grade falls short of your actual grade, it shall not affect the final evaluation.
  4. In addition, as per the Senate resolution in question, the grades FF and FD shall not be used for undergraduate or graduate degree courses of this semester. Students failing in any class will be issued the grade “W” instead.
  5. Students who have maximum two failed courses remaining for their graduation and who wish to take an additional exam may do so only in the current semester, and for their courses from Spring 2019-2020 with the grade “W”.

Kind regards.

Prof. Dr. M. Yıldırım Üçtuğ

Message from the President dated 13.05.2020

Valuable faculty members and dear students,

In this regard, our education during the spring semester shall continue as distance education until Friday, June 12th. Incomplete course presentations shall be completed, missing midterm exams shall be administered, and homework and project studies shall be performed until that date.
  2. The School/ Graduate School shall decide on the issues of how and when to perform the missing practice sessions for practice courses, and share their decisions accordingly, with their students.

Details on other issues shall be reassessed and shared with you in the light of the developments after May 27th.

Our University and our Faculty Members have been doing everything in their power to help our students leave the current extraordinary period behind with as few problems as possible. In this regard, I would like to thank our faculty members, and wish our students success.Hoping to meet at the campus at healthier times, I would like to kindly extend my regard and respect for all.

Withdrawal applications announcement dated 30.04.2020

Dear Students,

Withdrawal applications have been extended until 15.05.2020.

Registrar’s Office


Message from the President dated 30.04.2020

Dear Students,

I hope you and your loved ones are alright. As I have previously mentioned, we are witnessing difficult times while your health and your education are top priorities. Our University continues to progress with distance education with the opportunities that we have been able to create, and we expect to continue to do so until the end of May.

As you know, our University offers education in a wide array of fields, from health care to engineering, from law to civil aviation, or even from architecture to social sciences. To test whether our education has achieved its goals, we rely on certain methods under these disciplines. For some courses, projects, homework, quizzes or practice sessions happen to be the case. However, for most of our courses there is a need for examination for a final and just evaluation. Therefore, it is inevitable for us to organize midterm and final exams in the current, unique period.

In this regard, our University has decided to either organize online verbal or written midterm exams, or to implement choices such as projects or homework instead. However, most courses shall require final exams, and this is in our University agenda.

Various outcomes may emerge when distance learning ends on May 29. We may not be allowed to return to formal education at the University right away. In this case, waiting to organize final exams may cause losses in time for students aiming to attend our summer school, looking forward to advancing their sections or to their graduation, or those awaiting the commencement of their internship studies.

In this regard, our University is currently seeking alternatives to face-to-face exams. At this point you may agree that, since exams are to take place, they should be conducted with no room for any injustice. In fact, the Higher Education Council has bestowed the austerity to the power of universities, on the condition to prioritize justice and transparency. In this regard, we initiated our efforts to find a solution, and a software product globally used by over 100 million users has been made available for trials by our instructors. Our aim was to create an alternative to face-to-face final exams. For now, your midterm exams shall progress via other methods.  However, as I have mentioned, should we happen to be in a position to conduct final exams online due to obligations or health concerns, we have to be prepared accordingly, therefore, we needed to test the software to be used. Having the software tested for the first time during your finals would not be appropriate, due to the potential problems that could otherwise emerge in that period.

Hence, the examination software in position shall only be used for trials until it is ensured that it is operational with no issues for each and every student. On this occasion I would also like to share technical information regarding two issues which I believe are emerging deliberately. The software has no control over your computer, or access to your personal data. It only overrides certain features throughout an online assessment. Your computer is “unlocked” after the assessment, and continues to work normally, as if no interruptions have taken place. Your web cam feed is recorded during the exam, and kept in the servers for 24 hours, to be viewed only by your instructor. Therefore, nothing is different when compared to regular, face-to-face, proctored exams.

To conclude, our university is doing all in its power to take all measures in order to end the semester of Spring 2019-2020 in the best way possible within the framework of the current conditions, and when expected. As I have stated in my previous messages, our permanent priority is for you to leave the current period behind, encountering as few problems as possible. However, please bear with us while the university management and our faculty members are doing everything in their power in this regard, and do not collaborate in certain actions that are rooting from misinformation. Please bear in mind that we have no place for such actions while making an effort to leave no room for any injustice; since we do not wish for our distance education activities that we have been conducting with a great level of success even in these dire times to be hindered as such.

I wish you a healthy and successful day.

Kind regards.

Message from the President dated 15.04.2020

Dear students,

You are very young, yet, for example, in a lifetime of over 60 years, I have never seen anything like the current period. Not only you or us, but also our country and our world are indeed going through an extraordinary period.

In this period, two issues are of utmost importance for all of us. The first one is, without a doubt, the health of ourselves, and the people around us. We must follow the precautions taken in this regard until the end, and exercise utmost caution to protect ourselves, and our environment.

The second issue is your education. With the break in formal education, Atılım University has implemented a distance education model achieved by few other universities in Turkey, initiating live course streams for all levels, from Preparatory English to doctorate degree courses. You are the select few among millions of university students with such a privilege.

Important to us as much as your health are your education and recovery from this process without any losses. In this regard, we are, and shall be, doing everything in our power in the light of the developments. We have devised plans and calendars with respect to these developments, but the resolutions by our state shall give them their final form.

With the university entrance exam delayed, the beginning of the new academic year should move to October. In this framework, if we return to our daily lives at the start of summer, we do aim to start the summer school, as well. As long as you are accepted by companies, this situation also leaves time for your summer internship studies.

As per a resolution by our Senate, some of our faculty members may make projects, homework or live exams out of your midterm exams during the distance education period. We aim to perform the midterms that are not yet sat, as well as practice courses, when we start formal education.

From now on, our expectation of you is that you attend your live courses, study for your exams and spare no effort in recovering from the current extraordinary period without losses regarding your education. Remember that the world is going through a massive transformation, and technology is becoming an increasingly important element in our lives, in every aspect.

The Atılım University management and our faculty members are continuing their efforts regarding your education. You are irreplaceable for us, and our primary aim is that you walk away from the current period with as few losses as possible.

Looking forward to returning formal education, I hope that you will continue your education in the best way possible in line with the projections and the plans previously discussed, and extend my regards.

Prof. Dr. M. Yıldırım ÜÇTUĞ

In this regard, all courses, except for preparatory English courses, are to be streamed live through Zoom from Monday, March 30th, at their regular course hours.

Within the scope of the coronavirus epidemic measures, the Student Affairs Directorate of our university will be provided between the dates of 25 March - 6 April 2020 via oim@atilim.edu.tr and you can contact us via this e-mail address.

Thank you for your understanding.


Distance education announcement dated 23.03.2020

Dear Students,

Our country and our world are witnessing a period quite extraordinary. First of all, I would like to wish you, your family and your friends a healthy day.

As you are aware, classroom teaching at universities is experiencing an interruption due to the corona virus pandemic. Universities are starting to offer distance education for the time being as per the resolution by the Higher Education Council. As Atılım University, we are working intensively in this matter.

In this scope, as well as mandatory and elective courses, the theoretical portions of practice courses at all levels are available to you through the Moodle system. To gain access, you will need to log into moodle.atilim.edu.tr using the e-mail address provided by our University, and your password. A considerable portion of the courses of Spring are now available on Moodle. Our efforts to make the remaining courses available are continuing. In the event of problems regarding course access, you may e-mail the Dean/ Director of the relevant department to inform them accordingly.

For the time being, practice courses will not be offered. A decision will be taken on whether these courses will be within the scope of distance education activities, or within the framework of compact education in the light of the updates. We will keep you updated.

For the time being, no exams are to be administered remotely. Your midterm and final exams are to be administered once education activities resume at the university.

Level results for the Basic English Department (Preparatory School) have been determined taking into account the first exams, homework, quizzes and attendance. Level results are to be announced on March 24th. The new levels and sections are to be determined within the next two weeks and after the necessary preparations, the fourth quarter of the preparatory English course shall begin on April 13th.

ENG122, 222 and 322, courses offered by the Department of Modern Languages, are now available on Moodle for the students taking the class from all departments. Our efforts continue to upload the ENG102, 202 and 302 courses onto Moodle. We will keep you updated.

Live courses are to be offered for some of our courses, primarily those offered by the Departments of Basic English, and Modern Languages. You may follow the updates on this matter on the Moodle page of the relevant course.

Returning students within the scope of the Erasmus program may contact their advisors to determine the classes they wish to take. They will be registered to the courses of their choice, and given access to distance education.

Our message to you is “Stay home, stay healthy.” We kindly suggest that you follow the official accounts of our university, and do not go out unless you absolutely must.

We hope that you will continue your education remotely, and with the same encouragement, for the time being. We hope to see you soon at our campus.

Best regards.
