Start your life and career one step ahead with the Sectoral Collaboration Training Model
One of the most important needs of every student studying in communication sciences is to be able to transfer what they learn to practice, and to be successful in business life by receiving the real-life responses of theories about communication science. The Sectoral Cooperation Education Model, which we have implemented in order to achieve this goal, enables our students to access Turkey's leading communication institutions, whose number reaches 81 as of 2021. Our students go to real job interviews and spend three days a week for a semester to gain experience within the scope of the Sectoral Collaboration Training Model. The experience gained at the end of a semester is counted towards two courses and compulsory internships. At the end of the term, it is graded by the partner institution and the academic advisor. Our students, who develop their practice in all relevant areas from advertising to design, games, digital media, corporate communication, and sound, are ready for the industry while they are still at university.
Cooperation with Leading Institutions of the Industry
Offering both business and experience opportunities for Faculty of Communication students, the Sectoral Collaboration Education Model aims to ensure that our students gain sectoral experience while still at the university. As of the 2020-2021 Academic Year, our faculty has partnership agreements with 81 leading institutions of Turkey, and thanks to our collaborations, students have the opportunity to experience different titles and positions of the communication world and meet professional practices early.
Opportunity to Gain Professional Experience as a Student
The Sectoral Cooperation Training Model consists of 14-week programs that cover the fall and spring terms separately. Before each semester, our students apply for the positions announced by our training partners in the "News" page of our website, and they only get a real job interview experience as a result of the interviews.
The work of our students, whose internship insurances are made by our university, are evaluated by the coordinators of our education partners and the faculty members of our faculty running the program and converted into notes. The grade given is recorded on the course slots of our students as the final grade of two courses selected from three different course types as departmental elective, non-departmental elective and general elective in line with the decision of our students and their advisors within the program.
The model, which has been benefited by 800 students for 7 years in 81 partner institutions, has turned into an added value of our faculty in terms of applied education.
