TRAVELLING ABROAD

As for the the decision by Council of Higher Education, dated 13 March 2020:

·      The foreign travels of academic and administrative staff working in higher education institutions, including those previously planned, shall be canceled until a second announcement. In case of compulsory and urgent situations, the request will be sent with the annex of the decision of the University Executive Board, to the Presidency of Council of Higher Education for evaluation, in accordance with the Presidential Circular dated 12 March 2020 and numbered 2020/2.

·      Higher education institutions shall inform the students (Turkish and foreign nationals) that in case of traveling abroad, they may encounter with problems according to the pandemic status upon their return. Their flights may be cancelled and they may not continue their education for at least 14 days when they return, along with other problems.

·      Our students and members who have returned from abroad within the last 14 days should not come to the campuses in line with the warning by the Ministry of Health “not leave the house for 14 days”. In this case, students are required to submit their return documents from abroad to the deanship and the staff to the unit they are aligned to for absenteeism and examination rights during the 14-day “home-based (quarantine)” process.
