Bahçeşehir University (BAU) is a university worthy of the slogan “In the Heart of Istanbul “… There is a liveliness in its main campus on the edge of the Bosphorus in Beşiktaş that starts early in the day and lasts almost all day. Moreover, it is possible to come across an event in almost every corner of the university.

When you enter the doors of BAU, the first thing that will catch your eye will be the large number of foreign students at our university. More than a thousand foreign students from a wide geography ranging from the United States to China, from France to South Korea are studying at BAU. When you ask why they chose BAU, the answers are the same: “ Central location and international power ”. BAU’s position is obvious. To understand their work in the international arena, a short tour of our university campus or our website will be enough.

BAU provides its students with the opportunity to receive education in many different parts of the world through various agreements and collaborations. Moreover, it does this in cities where BAU Global member institutions are located, such as Berlin, Toronto, Washington DC, Batumi, Cyprus, Hanoi, Kiev, Pueblo and Brockville. The “ International Office ” unit provides all program-related support to students who want to continue their education at BAU Global campuses. At BAU, you have the opportunity to take a course related to your department in Istanbul, Berlin, Batumi or at the member institutions of the BAU Global Education Network in Washington DC. You also have the opportunity to apply for BAU’s summer abroad programs towards the end of each academic year. Moreover, BAU Global’s summer abroad programs are open not only to our own students, but also to students from all over the world!

Getting to BAU is quite easy. Free transportation is provided to our students and academics with our own boats between our Beşiktaş North, Beşiktaş South, Göztepe and Galata campuses located in the heart of Istanbul. It is possible to reach our other campus in Galata with a pleasant journey with these boats, which depart from our pier in Beşiktaş at certain hours of the day. Thus, our students can move from campus to campus without getting stuck in heavy Istanbul traffic and taking in the sea air. Our campus in Galata hosts especially the studies of the Faculty of Communication in the field of new media. There are many workshops in Galata, from digital media to tablet publishing, from digital game workshops to the news desk where the fundamentals of journalism are learned.

BAU organizes programs not only for students but also for graduates and prospective graduates. The BAU family, which grows every year with the trainings and events organized by our Alumni Office throughout the year, maintains its strong ties even after graduation.

We invite you to be a part of the BAU family…
