As the International Community Services Office (ICO) of Koç University, we are delighted to invite all international student service staff to be a part of our event series: International Student Service Hub.

Over the past few years, especially with the onset of the pandemic, we have found that outside the scope of student recruitment and exchange/mobility programs, we do not often get the chance to meet with our peers from different institutions and be a part of an environment where we can discuss our best practices in international student services.

In light of this realization, we decided to create a space to bring together university professionals who are responsible for providing assistance to degree-seeking international students after enrolment and throughout their education period to have an exchange of ideas. International Student Service Hub is a monthly online event series, covering many topics that is enriched with the input and insight of all participants.

We believe that your valuable perspective and expertise on the services provided will be highly insightful and the discussion of services will be greatly beneficial in broadening the internationalization efforts of all parties involved.

Themes covered so far are:

  • Orientation Week Practices
  • Buddy/Mentorship Programs
  • Mental Health Needs and Support
  • Social Integration Projects and Events
  • Methods of Communication 
  • Social Media Tools
  • Career Services for International Students

Next Session: Alumni Relations with International Students
