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.
