The preparatory programs of our school offer one-year intensive language program that enables new students to utilize their language skills efficiently and effectively at the levels recommended by the Common Language Regulation of the European Council during their academic studies and postgraduation professional life.
The main purpose of the SFL is to provide opportunities to the students studying at Necmettin Erbakan University to use all resources related to their academic studies effectively and to be able to use the foreign languages that they study in their social lives by verbal and written communication. Our school considers the necessity of constant evaluation and renewal of itself in order to fulfill the needs of students in a better way and performs works in this context. In our school the SFL library has already been established, and in order to improve speaking skills of our students, the efforts for establishing a digital library continue. Our school moved to a web-based exam system in 2019 and so exams are held digitally by using 200 computers available in our laboratories. Moreover, our students and staff are offered language training by means of the opened courses in English, German, French, Arabic and Persian.
