DEAR STUDENTS AND THEIR BELOVED FAMILIES;
Our university, which was founded in 1998 by the Foundation of Children with Leukemia, will celebrate its 24th year of establishment this year and continues to grow and develop.
3 years ago, we started with the slogan “Change begins in the Golden Horn” and with the necessity of being a real Foundation University, we worked with great dedication as the Board of Trustees and the Rectorate to improve the quality of education for our students, and finally reached the stage of making our dream of becoming a “Campus University” a reality.
We surely loved our Sütlüce Campus, however, it campus started getting short in meeting our long-term goals and improving our educational quality.
