Registering to the Academic Semester

  • The student has to register at the beginning of each each Academic Semester. The registration process is online through the system OBIKAS. If you are a newcomer, please follow this tutorial.
  • There are three academic terms (Fall, Spring and Summer). Summer term is not a mandatory academic semester, you may register only if you want to take a course, albeit with an higher tuition rate per credit.
  • The time-spans for the MS and PhD programs are four and eight academic semesters, respectively. It can be extended to six and twelve academic semesters for MS and PhD, respectively. Further extension is not possible. Scientific prep and English prep are not counted.
  • If a student wishes to take a leave of absence for one semester, then this leave is counted as one semester in the time-span. In certain circumstances, such as presence of serious health problems (along with official evidence) or participation at a mandatory social or military service, then this leave will not be counted as one semester. Temporary leave due to, for example, a professional job requirement is not regarded as a valid excuse.
  • If a student does not register in four successive semesters, then OBIKAS access of the student is disabled until a valid English exam score is submitted to the Registrar's Office.
