About Program

The program aims to create a rewarding summer experience for students from both partner and non-partner universities. It combines high-quality courses and the opportunity to participate in local activities that enables you to gain insight into Turkish culture in Istanbul.


Located on both sides of the Bosphorus, Istanbul bridges Asia and Europe both physically and culturally. This is one of the greatest cities in the world where you can see a modern western city combined with its own unique culture. From the foundation of Byzantium in the 7th century BC until today, Istanbul always held an important role in the history of humanity as a melting pot of many civilizations. Today it boosted its population over 14 million people living in this spread out city. This makes Istanbul the largest city in Turkey and one of the biggest cities in the world.
