The goal of the 15th International Bilkent University School of English Language (BUSEL) Conference was to explore key issues, effective practices, and standards in EAP provision and create a forum to share experiences that will shape the future of EAP. In addition, we hope to create a learning environment where EAP professionals, faculty, administrators, and others can network, learn, and share ideas in order to better understand ways in which research and teaching interact, and inform each other from a number of vital and relevant perspectives.


A Pre - Conference Event was jointly held with BALEAP (The global forum for EAP professionals)

Date: 28 June 2018
