We support our researchers in their personal effectiveness, academic and professional development during their study at Koç University. Researcher Development Office under VPRD has been recently established, a first in Turkey, to offer Koç University postgraduate researchers a range of development opportunities, delivered by various academic and support offices within and outside the University. The office aims to consider and interact with the different components of researcher experience, and facilitate and enhance researchers’ abilities, strengths, competency and resilience.

In order to boost the research and transferable skills of our researchers and provide a rich researcher development experience at Koç, the office works on three bases:

1- listening and understanding postgraduate researcher feedback;

2- responding and providing resources;

3- offering support.
