About Icon About Tuzla
Straddling Europe and Asia, Istanbul is the historic crossroads between East and West, a city of minarets and palaces looking resolutely to the future. Climbing the hills around the Golden Horn and overlooking the Bosporus, the city is filled with the wonders of the Ottoman and Byzantine empires, from the Topkapi Palace where the sultans led a truly decadent lifestyle, to the looming Hagia Sophie – part cathedral, part mosque and totally breathtaking. Istanbul has some of the coolest bars and clubs in whichever continent you’re standing, as well as a treasure trove of shopping and delicious cuisine fit for the sultan himself.

Student and Academics Icon Academic Programs
At Sabanci University, the credit value of an undergraduate and/or a graduate course is the sum of 1.0 times the weekly course hours plus 0.5 times of weekly application hours. The credit values of undergraduate courses and non-credit courses are determined by the Faculty Administrative Board whereas the credit values of the graduate courses are determined by the Graduate School Administrative Board.
On the other hand, ECTS credit of a course is calculated based on the total work such as lectures, seminars, self studies, practicum, etc. that is necessary to complete that course in accordance with the total amount involved.
Both credit systems are used at Sabanci University.
For more information, check the Academic Course Webpage.
