International Recruitment Team
Recruitment and Relocating to Turkey
We offer studio, one- or two-bedroom apartments on campus. Allocation is done based on the availability of these apartments at the time of recruitment. All accommodation is rent-free, private and furnished; however, a monthly fee is charged for utilities. Currently, this utility fee is around 130 US dollars (paid in TL) per month, which covers water, electricity and heating bills, garbage collection and cleaning of the apartment building’s common areas. Accommodation includes basic furniture, kitchen/kitchenette, bathroom, and shared laundry facilities. Bottled water and propane gas costs are covered by the instructors.
The University does not provide computers in apartments, but provides limited free Internet access via the University server. All campus apartments are wired for the Ethernet (ADSL), allowing direct connection to the university network. More information about computer services and Internet connections at Bilkent can be found at http://w3.bilkent.edu.tr/bilkent/information-technology/.
A crash course in survival Turkish will be incorporated in your induction program. This course will be followed by regular Turkish classes offered by a English Language Preparatory Program teacher throughout the year. These Turkish classes are free of charge for English Language Preparatory Program instructors and their immediate families.
