Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, in addition to the practices announced earlier, the following ones will be implemented by our University on the basis of  the decisions taken by the Higher Education Council (YÖK) on 13 March 2020:

1. With the exception of the rector, vice-rectors, deans, and school directors, all academic and administrative personnel who are over the age of 60, have a disability, are pregnant or document their chronic illness will be considered on administrative leave. Other academic and administrative staff will be able to use annual leave upon request.

2. All international travel of academic and administrative personnel, including those previously planned, have been canceled until further notice.

3. Those who have to go abroad due to their particular conditions are required to obtain permission from the governorship along with the rectorate. Those who go abroad with this kind of authorization should make their permission plans considering an obligatory 14-day isolation period upon return.
