Dear Prospective Students,
Beykoz University opened its doors in 2008 and since then it is an international, new generation, quality-oriented, university which represents an innovative vision for higher education with the structure it built its strong history of vocational higher education on.
We totally agree with John Dewey the pedagogue who says: “Education is not preparation for life, education is life itself.” We believe that our students should learn not only to know but also to apply. Starting from this point of view; we aim to offer our students a learning and university environment supported by multidimensional, international quality standards that are open to multidisciplinary approaches. This university environment will predominantly focus on applied training that can develop knowledge and skills of our students with the training models and approaches we have developed for associate degree, undergraduate and graduate programs.
It is our primary goal to build education and training programs that will enable our students in all programs to gain the competencies described as the necessities of 21st century, to make it possible for them to grow up as democratic, free-thinking, broad-minded individuals, and to create a campus environment for this purpose.
Our university aims to be a centre of happiness, freedom, tolerance and success for our students and staff, and targets excellence in their services.
I invite you to become a student of Beykoz University, which has brought and will bring about significant differences and innovations in Turkey’s higher education life.
With my love and respect,
Prof. Dr. Mehmet Durman
