Our School of Languages Director Nergis Uyan Becomes the first EAQUALS Board Member from Turkey

Evaluation and Accreditation of Quality in Language Services (EAQUALS) has elected Ms. Nergis Uyan, Director of our School of Languages, as its board member. EAQUALS is an international accreditation institution whose mission is to foster excellence in language education across the world by providing guidance and support to teaching institutions and individuals. This is the first time a board member is elected from Turkey to EAQUALS, a world wide accreditation institution.

Pursuing its vision to develop the best Academic English Program in Turkey, the School of Languages was awarded with the EAQUALS accreditation in 2016 for all three of its programs (English Preparatory Program, Undergraduate English Program and Modern Languages Program), marking a first in Turkey.  


Institutions which apply for the EAQUALS accreditation are responsible for proving that they are committed to excellence in all stages of their language education and instruction, and, to that end, they go through a challenging inspection process. Founded in 1991, EAQUALS is the leading accreditation body in Europe, committed to attest quality in language teaching and learning. EAQUALS collaborates with the Council of Europe as well as several other international institutions on language instruction.  The main aims of EAQUALS are to improve the experience of language learners by developing quality standards for the teaching of modern languages, to deliver accreditation against these standards for providers of language education, and to develop practical resources, and offer training and support for those working in the field of modern languages.
