About Icon About Istanbul
Istanbul, once known as the capital of capital cities, has many unique features. It is the only city in the world to straddle two continents, and the only one to have been a capital during two consecutive empires - Christian and Islamic. Once capital of the Ottoman Empire, Istanbul still remains the commercial, historical and cultural pulse of Turkey, and its beauty lies in its ability to embrace its contradictions. Ancient and modern, religious and secular, Asia and Europe, mystical and earthly all co-exist here.

Its variety is one of Istanbul’s greatest attractions: The ancient mosques, palaces, museums and bazaars reflect its diverse history. The thriving shopping area of Taksim buzzes with life and entertainment. And the serene beauty of the Bosphorus, Princes Islands and parks bring a touch of peace to the otherwise chaotic metropolis.

Student and Academics Icon Academic Programs
Student-centered educational system is implemented at this university. In this system all the studies and coursework (theory and application hours of the courses, attendance, laboratories, project works, homework, exams, senior projects and so on) completed by the students will be assessed and credited. With their facilities and supplies, all the departments/ programmes will provide students with application opportunities in the related fields.

Credit system, which is called as European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System (ECTS) reflecting the studies and coursework completed successfully by the students, increases recognition in national and international areas and facilitates the students’ admissions to national and international universities by providing them with the required credits accumulated through their academic studies. This new system will also give students the chance to be employed both in national and international professional areas.
