-About the class process
The three-year Private Law Masters Program's first year consists of classes. Namely, under Article 12 of the Regulation; “The duration of the master's program with thesis is four semesters, starting from the semester in which the classes related to the program they are enrolled in, excluding the time spent in scientific preparation, regardless of whether they are registered for each semester, and the program is completed in a maximum of six semesters.
At the end of four semesters, those who fail to complete the credit classes in the curriculum with a grade point average of at least 3.00 and complete the seminar class or fail to fulfill the success conditions/criteria stipulated by the higher education institution within this period; A student who fails in the thesis study or does not enter the thesis defense within the maximum period of six semesters is dismissed from the University.
Students who fulfill the required graduation requirements from the master's program can graduate before the minimum period. The transcripts of these students are arranged in the form of transcripts of normal students.”.
Classes take place on the weekdays between 19.00-22.00. Students choose the classes they want during the class selection week from the compulsory and elective classes offered separately each semester and create their class schedules. Class selections are made online and are made through the 'ois' system. Each student logs into the system with the user name and password given to him/her separately. To avoid any problems, it is recommended to choose the classes on the first days of the class selection week as much as possible.
By the curriculum; in the fall semester 2 compulsory - 2 elective classes, in Spring semester 1 compulsory-3 elective classes will be chosen. During the class selection, compulsory classes will be shown by their name, on the other hand, elective classes will be listed under the “Departmental Elective” button. It is possible to choose an elective course from the Capital Markets and Finance Law program, provided that there is no conflict in the curriculum since Private Law and Capital Markets and Finance Law masters programs have the same elective class pool. Classes in the Private Law Masters Program are coded OHK, on the other hand, classes in Capital Markets and Finance Law are coded THK. Compulsory classes in the Private Law Masters Program are: in the fall semester “Current Affairs on Obligations Law” and “Research Methods and Ethics”, in spring semester “Collateral Security”. Elective courses differ every semester. Look here for up-to-date information on Compulsory and Elective classes that are planned to open in the 2016-2017 Spring Semester.

-Thesis stage and graduation
Students who complete the class process and have a grade point average of at least 3.00 can pass to the thesis stage. Those who couldn't complete the classes fully or couldn't provide the necessary point average can pass to the thesis stage with a maximum of two courses. At this stage, the student should determine the thesis topic and agree with a faculty member working in that field for thesis advisory. The thesis advisor may be a faculty member in the university staff or a faculty member in another university who has given or is giving lectures within the program. The advisory task performed by the program coordinator is performed by the thesis advisor together with the appointment of the thesis advisor. (See also Regulation art. 11/3, 40/6).
The student who determined thesis subject and advisor after putting this information on the system then again needs to get the approval of the program coordinator and thesis advisor on the same system. they should also choose Thesis-1 and Seminar courses. These courses take place in the form of studies and interviews necessary for the formation of the thesis, with the guidance of the thesis advisor.
Students who are successful in Thesis-1 and Seminar courses by getting an "S" grade will take only Thesis-2 course in the next semester or another semester, provided that it does not exceed three years, and will defend their thesis by complying with the dates specified in the academic calendar that semester. (See Regulation art. 14/11)
The student who is successful in the thesis defense will be able to graduate by completing the necessary procedures. (See Regulation art 15)
