İstanbul Arel University, since its foundation, has been acting with the vision of being a world-class university. Within this context, and conscious of the changes in the globalising world, the University gives great importance to developing and diversifying international relations. Arel University International Office has been established for this purpose. In this respect, International Office has accepted international students since 2009. As for the distribution of students who choose us, our students are mainly from Middle East, Caucasia, Central Asia and Africa.
İstanbul Arel University, while rapidly progressing on its way to being a world-class university, develops cooperation with universities in countries outside the European Higher Education Area and makes arrangements for admission of students from these countries. Within this context, principal objectives of the International Office include increasing opportunities for enhancing cooperation with universities in America, Canada, Africa, Middle East, Japan and China. “Directive on International Student Admissions” has been established to systematize international student admissions, and an increasing number of international students from various countries have been admitted to the University.
İstanbul Arel University’s mission includes providing the best education for all students without discrimination, and the International Office undertakes this mission in the international context.
