|IKU is located in Istanbul, Turkey, the only city in the world to straddle two continents. Once capital of the Ottoman Empire, Istanbul still remains the commercial, historical, and cultural center of Turkey, and its beauty lies in its ability to embrace its contradictions: ancient and modern, religious and secular, Asian and European.
Istanbul offers a variety of attractions to explore, including ancient mosques, palaces, museums, and bazaars. Located along the Bosphorus Strait, the city also boasts islands and parks that bring a touch of peace to the otherwise chaotic metropolis.
Close to international Istanbul Atatürk Airport, the campuses of Istanbul Kültür University are within a 5-minute walking distance of bus and light rail stops, and it is possible to reach all the districts of Istanbul easily.

|Academics and Courses|
|Exchange students can choose from a range of course options offered within the department of Economics and Administrative Services. The educational system at IKU is student-centered, and coursework is typically assessed through attendance, projects, homework assignments, and examinations.
IKU encourages interactive education with regular conferences, seminars, business trips, and workshops to support lectures and to provide professional development for its students. Classroom lectures are often enriched with the participation of notable speakers from various business organizations.
Although many courses are taught in English, students are encouraged to enroll in a Turkish language course based on their level of proficiency.

|IKU's student residences aim to help students be successful in their academic life by creating a clean, comfortable, and secure atmosphere for accommodation and study. Each residence includes recreation rooms, study rooms, internet access, laundry rooms, and cafeterias. Social and cultural activities are also offered within the dormitories.|

|Depending on nationality and length of stay, exchange students accepted to study at IKU typically need to apply for a student visa. Visas must be applied for and issued by the appropriate Turkish authority in each student’s home country prior to arrival in Istanbul. Within one month of arrival, exchange students must also apply for a residence permit. Since visa rules and regulations change frequently, consult the nearest Turkish embassy or consulate for the most up-to-date information.|
