ITU TÖMER aims to enable our international students and academic/administrative staff  to learn Turkish in order to facilitate their daily life and communication on and off campus and give them the opportunity to follow and contribute to scientific studies in Turkish.

The scope of engagement of ITU TÖMER is not limited to our institution but - open to the public. Turkish language courses are organized for anyone who wants to learn Turkish, including employees of consulates and international companies located around our campuses. Thus, it aims to transfer Turkish culture to wider circles and - increase intercultural interaction.

İTÜ TÖMER provides a research and practice area for our academic and administrative staff, working in the fields of teaching Turkish and other languages as a foreign language - as well as enabling them to produce scientific outputs in these fields and to organize various national/international scientific meetings.
