Rector's Message

Dear Students

Since the day you were born, education has been a part of your life. Every individual is unique and you have many traits and skills that make you who you are. The important thing is to unveil these features.

While the new world order is being established, many structures have undergone changes. Technology has developed, opportunities for accessing information have changed, new professions have emerged, and the value of arts, sports, personal development and cultural interactions has increased. Within this structure, needs and expectations have changed in parallel with the societies. You will shape your own future in accordance with these developments. Today, you are at an important point regarding a decision you are about to make concerning your life. This decision of yours will be an important tool in reaching your targets in life. With every step you take, you should feel that you are one step closer to your goal and you should plan, believe and work harder to achieve it. In your career choices, it is of great importance that you are at a place that reveals the features that make you yourself; a place where you are happy while producing, where you will make your dreams come true, and where you feel you are the best. You should have a good evaluation of the opportunities offered to you to receive quality education, to become a well-equipped individual, to be familiar with the requirements of multicultural systems, to engage in activities that will play an important role in your personal development, to be interested in arts and sports, to make new friendships in a multinational environment and sail towards new friendships and horizons.
