Teaching other than that approved by the University can constitute a conflict of commitment. Of particular concern is remunerated teaching. Specifically graduate assistants can not provide private lessons to students for personal gain as this constitutes a conflict of interest.
Except for official holidays when the University is closed graduate students are expected to be on campus fulfilling their degree requirements.During summer months graduate students who are on scholarships can take vacation (max two weeks) upon the recommendation of their advisors and approval of the Director of the Graduate School. Otherwise they all have to be on campus.
Koc University’s policies on intellectual property rights apply to all graduate students. Students should consult the manual on the web under Research Grant Administration and be aware of these rights and policies.
The medium of instruction at Koç University is English with the exception of certain designated courses and programs. Therefore lectures including those given in the labs and problem sessions and the student participation must be carried out in English. All graduate teaching assistants must adhere to this policy.
