The slogan “At the heart of Istanbul” is suitable for a university like Bahcesehir University (BAU)… With its main campus on the edge of the Bosporus in Besiktas each day begins early with rapid mobility and continues throughout the day. Moreover, it is possible to encounter an event at almost every part of the university.
The first thing that will strike your eye when you enter our university will be the large number of foreign students. From the United States to China, from France to South Korea from a wide geographical area extending over a thousand foreign students are studying at BAU. When asked why they prefer BAU we always receive the same answer: “The central location and international power.” BAU’s location is apparent. In order to understand the international collaborations of our university, a short tour of our campus or website would be sufficient.
“The World is My Campus” provides BAU students with a chance to receive education from very different points. BAU is able to achieve this through Berlin, Toronto, Washington DC, Hong Kong, Rome, Silicon Valley and Boston campuses and academic centers. “BAU Abroad” allows students to continue their education in campuses overseas and provides all support related to the programs.
