The courses to be followed include the formation courses laid down by the Higher Education Council (YOK) for qualified teacher status, further courses in education, and a thesis. Strong emphasis is given to international dimensions, including the International Baccalaureate and IGCSE curricula. Graduates also receive an IB Certificate in Teaching and Learning, following recognition of the program by the International Baccalaureate Organisation.
Currently, the Graduate School of Education accepts students in five subject areas: Turkish Language and Literature, English, Biology, Mathematics, and Physics.
A strong feature of the Curriculum and Instruction with Teaching Certificate (CITE) programme from Bilkent University Graduate School of Education is students' experience in schools. Each semester students have an internship in leading high schools in Ankara, Istanbul and Izmir, observing classes and teaching. In addition they have a five-week internship at Cambridge University and schools in England.
The teacher education courses of the program cover the required educational knowledge and skills. Subject-area and liberal arts courses broaden and extend students' understanding of their subject area and educational philosophy.
