UNIQUE EDUCATION MODEL
- 3+1, 7+1 Internship Enriched Curriculum Framework
- Student Centered Education and Training
- Strong Academic Infrastructure
- Internationally Recognized Quality Assurance
“Education is not preparation for life; education is life itself.” Educational philosophy of the Famous educational scientist John Dewey is also the foundation of our university’s educational philosophy and unique education teaching model. We want our students to associate what they have learned in university with those in real life, to be able to apply what they have learned and to be in real life in the course of their education. For this reason, as part of our education and training programs, internship is compulsory in our curriculum. Our students spend at least one semester in a workplace operating in their field. We implement the model of 7+1 semester internship for our bachelor’s degree programmes, 6+2 semester internships for our four-year high school programmes, 3+1 semester internship for vocational degree programmes and we’ll make sure that our students are at work for at least one semester. Internship process is being managed by the Internship Coordination Unit of the University.
Quality, excellence and sustainability are very important for our university. Beykoz University provides “International Quality Assurance” to all students with a curriculum program in harmony with international universities and at comparable quality.

ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY AWARENESS
- Informatics Literacy

Usage of Advanced Technology is one of building blocks of Beykoz University’s teaching and learning approach. Reaching the exact information from data depending on the rapid development of communication and information technologies, evaluating these data and producing solutions is a competency that our students in all departments acquire.
In order to solve the real-life problems, our students are given the ability of reaching information, accessing information from different sources, identifying strategies and methods for how information can be obtained and interpreting this information.
Thanks to this strategy and method finding phenomenon we teach to our students, our students are always encouraged to participate to “maker movement” that combines “technology” and “do it yourself” culture, which is spreading far and wide all around the world, as well as transitioning from consumption to production, from memorized knowledge to experience and not setting limits to their dreams.
Our students, after their education at our university, have the chance to continue their life-long education by means of distance learning methods which are developed with technology today, to access to learning materials and to determine the speed and intensity of learning in terms of their priorities.
