Turkish AS/A2 level at City and Islington College

Course description

Turkey is one of Britain's biggest trading partners outside the European Union, and the number of Turkish communities and speakers continues to grow in Britain. Develop your language skills and learn more about Turkish culture, society and its worldwide diaspora.

Course content

The first year of the course concentrates on the written language. The second year focuses on developing your reading and listening comprehension, as well as your creative and analytical writing skills in Turkish.

Entry requirements

  • You must satisfy the general entry criteria for A Level courses, which are based on your GCSE results.
  • In addition, you must have at least a grade B in GCSE Turkish or evidence of strong reading and writing skills in Turkish.

International students:

  • Equivalent overseas qualifications will be considered.
  • IELTS 5.5 (with a minimum of 5.0 in each skill) or equivalent.
