Trakya University School of Foreign Languages was established at Trakya University with the regulation of Council of Ministers on 30. 09. 2005 (Additional Article 30 of the Law no. 2809 dated 28. 03. 1983), and upon the decision of the collection of Compulsory and Optional Preparatory Classes of English and German Languages with the framework of the School of Foreign Languages ( the Law No. 3 of the Senate meeting dated 03. 03. 2006), it has begun its activities since the academic year 2006-2007. In the same academic year, in order to meet the need of multi-lingual specialists, the Department of Translation and Interpretation in German and English was established and students were enrolled.
