Certificate in Turkish Studies
Minimum Entry Requirements: The minimum entry requirement is the ability to demonstrate the potential to study at undergraduate level. However, programmes may have their own specific requirements, such as, in the case of language-based studies, a proven ability to learn a language.
This certificate is designed for students who already have a good level of competence in Turkish language and do not therefore need intensive language tuition.
Students will be expected to take one language course at a level suitable to their competence, from the following:
A language course at a suitable level is chosen from the following list.
- Elementary Written Turkish - 155901051 (1 Unit) - Full Year
- Intermediate Modern Turkish Language - 155900547 (1 Unit) - Full Year
- Advanced Turkish/English/Turkish Translation - 155900913 (1 Unit) - Full Year
The remaining three courses will be chosen from the Turkish list available in the relevant year. Course choice is subject to approval by the Department and acceptance by the teacher concerned.
Teaching & Learning
A Student's Perspective
Tamara Bah, American University, Washington
Before I came to SOAS, I knew that my grade would depend on either one or two large assignments and I was apprehensive about that—almost scared, however I am glad as I got to learn a lot about myself as a student. I became more independent academically and got to see what I can really accomplished without teachers “coddling” me along the way. Extremely refreshing!
