Since its establishment Turkish Language department has been putting efforts to introduce Turkish Language as well as to promote Turkish culture. Turkish Embassy at Islamabad has always been a source of encouragement for the department. In order to equip the department with the modern audio visual aids, on the recommendation of the Turkish Embassy, a language lab was installed by TIKA (The Republic of Turkey Prime Ministry, The Turkish Cooperation and Coordination Agency). Turkish Department was keen to start the degree program. With the approval of the Higher Education Commission of Republic of Turkey, an MOU was signed in between NUML (National University of Modern Languages) and Yunus Emre Institute In 2012. Within the framework of this MOU Turkish Department has launched its first BS (4 year) Turkish Language Teaching Program. This program has brought a positive change in the department. Post degree programs will be added as well. This strong cooperation and collaboration between NUML and YEI will pave way to the progress of the Turkish Language Department in connection with the futuristic aspects of academic, scientific and cultural plans for teaching and training.
