Job description

We offer you the opportunity to work as a university instructor, teaching English for Academic Purposes (EAP) at a university that leads the world with regard to the percentage of open-access publications according to the 2019 CWTS Leiden Rankings. In 2019, Bilkent University was ranked 82nd in the inaugural Times Higher Education Asia University Rankings. Bilkent University was named as Turkey's highest-ranked university in two of the Quacquarelli Symonds World University Rankings for 2019.

The English Language Preparatory Program prepares students for the English medium academic studies in the faculties of Bilkent University. The program brings students’ English level up to the level required for study in their faculties and schools. The language provision in the university extends beyond the English Language Preparatory Program. Once students complete their studies in the English Language Preparatory Program and go into their departments, they start taking credit-bearing English courses for academic or professional purposes offered by the Faculty Academic English Program (FAE).

The English Language Preparatory Program has around 130 instructors, twenty-five percent of whom are international, committed to maintaining quality standards in teaching the English language and academic skills. We are a learning institution that constantly evaluates and renews itself to better accommodate the changing needs of our students.

The instructors are required to work a forty-hour week. Regular daily working hours are 8:30 to 17:30 with a one hour lunch break. The course load for Preparatory Program instructors is set at 680 hours of classroom teaching over an academic year (Fall and Spring semesters and the Summer School) in accordance with the needs of the program. Weekly classroom teaching hours may vary throughout the academic year, between 15 and 25 depending on the need of the program in that specific period.
