Buşra Kavurmacı / Psychology

When I joined the open-house days, ŞEHİR was the university which made me say "This is the one!". It is a constantly breathing dynamic and new university. ŞEHİR virtually presents you your dreams by most fruitful symposiums, strong academic staff with which you can chat accompanied by a cup of coffee and funny clubs. Along with a strong education, you will be part of this world where you gain a different point of view for life in a very short time.

ŞEHİR is a university far beyond assumptions! As well as its academic qualities, it has socially important means and an international identity. Here you can meet new cultures, improve yourselves and feel yourselves not in an ordinary education but in a different and colorful life. From this point, gradually growing ŞEHİR presents its students a university life far beyond the dreams.

​İstanbul Şehir University is one of the best universities in Turkey. We all have dreams about university. My dream was to study in such a good university in Turkey and become a talented engineer. I met new friends at ŞEHİR and I am glad that happened. Being at ŞEHİR means being happy and peaceful. I chose ŞEHİR because I am sure I will learn excellent English and will become a good engineer.

Dilara Kılıç / Cinema and Television

​ŞEHİR is an international university, providing its students with great opportunities for their academic, cultural and social developments, and attending to every one of its students personally. As a student of the Cinema and Television Department, I have obtained all the opportunities at ŞEHİR in order to make my dreams come true. With prominent faculty and rich laboratories and equipment reserved for students, our university supports our progress in our fields while socially supporting us by its warm and sincere human relationship and tolerant administrative policy.

Serhat Aksal / Law

​What is the first thing that comes to your mind when we say law? Mine is "freedom of expression". That’s why I decided to study law. Do you have "buts" in your mind while expressing your opinion? Or are you somehow concerned about what others will say? "ŞEHİR" is the place where I can express myself "freely" and "without concern".

Ersin Onur Erdoğan / Computer Science and Engineering

​Hey there! I am your friend Ersin. I chose ŞEHİR, turning a deaf ear to all the comments I heard against attending a “private university”, and I ran from home and from those who tried to change my mind about attending this university. Demolishing the widespread perception of “private university” created by TV series, this school holds its students in high esteem. We are here with outstanding academic faculty, in a multicultural environment, with vast opportunities of scholarship, a rich library and several other benefits, and we are waiting for you to join us too!

Zeynep Celile Karaman / Sociology

​İstanbul Şehir University is where academics say to you “I am going to have some tea, would you like some too," where clubs formed by students organize one event after another, and where students from all around the world become your friends… This university not only gives you the best academic education possible but also opens all doors, and students become highly qualified individuals in every sense.

Yavuz Selim Şimşek / Law

All of us have dreams about university. The realization of all of my dreams was the thing that made me believe in ŞEHİR legends. Because, by meeting my academic and social expectation more than enough, ŞEHİR made me say "I haven't even dream about this." I mean, first ŞEHİR makes your dreams come true and than held you have new dreams about future and reach to them. Here, everyone talks about one another like “This boy is gonna be a big man.” Still, why ŞEHİR? Because of the means it provides and the self-confidence we have, it is ŞEHİR.

Burak Cimrenli / MA in Political Science and International Relations

University is the place that a person gets out of his cocoon and steps in the outer world for the first time. ŞEHİR appeared before me as a miniature which covers this outer world with all its layers. It gave me the opportunity to establish a mutual relation with the academicians, the staff, and the students. It has been a university, which took the initiative of introducing me to different cultures and people, both inside the university and abroad. I feel very lucky for choosing this university, which helped me gain so much experience regarding the world, just as I took the first step.

Bilge Erdemli / Law

​ŞEHİR is one of the few universities, which make you actually experience the culture of cohabitation instead of teaching it. Here you can produce something with faculty and students from different geographies and feel how studying in an atmosphere full of different perspectives enriches you. Providing this variety, ŞEHİR managed to remove the borders between sciences and interests. Here you can study at any department and take courses from different fields while learning a foreign language and carrying out a project you have always dreamt of. Just want to be a ŞEHİR member!

Mücahide Engin / Islamic Studies

Studying Islamic Studies at ŞEHİR makes me quite excited since the very first day. I learn Arabic and English in a very effective and concentrated way and we have discussions about classical and modern islamic studies accumulation.  One of the most important reasons to prefer ŞEHİR is the fact that we can do minor or double major in any field of social sciences. Thus, we will be competent youth with a broand, interdisciplinary point of view. For someone who wants to be a multilateral, prolific academician with high accumulation in the Islamic studies, ŞEHİR Islamic Studies is the right place with its experienced and guiding academic staff.

Hüseyin Tarık Aydın / Political Science and International Relations

ŞEHİR is a unique and free university which supports to have a say in the global meaning. Instead of being a walker-on of ancient order in the unfruitful ideological discussions which are far away from the science, here you can be an effective actor in the formation of new paradigms needed by the humankind. In this university where you can experience your own limits, you can create a difference when you graduate with an interdisciplinary education instead of a single academic discipline. However, here, graduation will be the last thing you will think!

Talha Tolunalp / Psychology

Here you can found clubs and meet people you cannot even think of and organize events within this scope or have an interview with any academician you want on any subject you are curious about. If you say “ I cannot be occupied with them", you can attend in numerous conferences organized during the year and have the chance of learning 30-year-experience of the professors from different fields in just 2 hours. English? You will sort it out with extremely colorful Turkish and foreign instructors who are very experienced in the field of language teaching.

Asiye Merve Avşar / Law

In addition to the means provided in the academic sense, here you can find sincere friends with whom you will be lost in intimate talks. As it has a considerable number of international students due to not limiting the student selection with Turkey but opening its doors to the world, ŞEHİR spices up our friend atmosphere and makes our chats more joyful. If there are those who still as why ŞEHİR, they should definitely stop by here before making a choice. 

Elif Şentürk / Political Science and International Relations

Everyone is excited in this University. Everyone has an aim, has a vision. You can see that everyone's eyes are shining once you walk in the door; from the rector to the security guards. They believe in you, they expect so much from you. I believe that I am at the right place as I want to change some things in the life.

Demet Erdoğan / Industrial Engineering

Every one of us has a dream about university life but can a university realize them all? I find the opportunity of realizing my dreams from the very first day I came to “Şehir". Our university transformed all the disadvantages that could have arisen from its first year into advantages. We can share our projects and problems with our instructors at a warm lunch. Our university presents a serious English Preparatory Program, a good academic staff and structure of education which enables self-improvement so that we will not have any worries about finding a work in the future.

Kevser Hülya Akdemir / MA in Political Science and International Relations

Each university is founded to reach a certain academic ideal. However, when you come to ŞEHİR, you will see that your academicians and your university will be, not only a passive lecturer contributing to your accumulation of knowledge, but also a part of your life. The relations you establish will have a depth that will accompany you all of your life. At ŞEHİR which carries an international vision, thanks to different means abroad and international students, you will understand better that each part of the globalized world is our city.

Muhammed Haykal / Islamic Studies

​When I first saw ŞEHİR, I realized that this university was totally outstanding, it is almost the same as  universities in America. There are a lot of conferences and activities held here, I can even say that ŞEHİR is the most energetic university I’ve ever seen. Also, ŞEHİR has numerous high-quality academics who teach us how to learn collectively and guide us to how to think freely and creatively. Especially for students in Islamic Studies, our faculty is an appropriate place to realize your dreams! Because here we are using Arabic, English and Turkish simultaneously! In short, being at SEHIR means believing in yourself.

Ömer Çelebi / Management

I have aims which are hard to reach and in this vein, I know I need long and resolute stairs. It was the reason why I have come to Şehir. I realized that here is the place I seek in order to reach my dreams. I can recommend Şehir to you because of its free and unique characteristics. As everyone knows, if you are to participate in a competition, being in the best team helps you use your abilities most efficiently. Because your team will do all the other works for you. All you need to do is to be yourselves and run after your dreams. That is why I expect you in this team, I mean in Şehir Family.”

Ömür Türkay / Cinema and Television

My whole life is about writing. Wherever I went, they offered me some coffee, asked me what I am interested in and told the same thing: “If you stay here for a day, you will make up really interesting stories!" Wherever I went, I met someone, asked about their past and heard the same thing: “Write about me! It will be a novel!” We all live each year in one-page novels. Everyone's story is gripping, that's right everyone is floating in them, everyone does several things, some live diaries line by line and unfortunately “no one is alone”. Each novel has a reader but only the legendary novels become notorious. Because, what is not done is always “the one that is more”.

Osamah Al-Ghammari / Computer Science

I have chosen Istanbul Sehir University because it has so many features which make it distinguishable among universities. A case in point, the academic staff is really helpful and considerable for students’ need. Secondly, the academic lecturers are superior and educated enough to convey the information in a perfect way. Not only that, they make sure that the student has received the information properly. I also love the international atmosphere in the university. All of the students help each other in a practical way; so many languages are being spoken in the campus.

Firdaous Amri / History

We came from different continents then we gathered all in this lovely city Istanbul and this lovely University. İstanbul Şehir University has a very friendly atmosphere. We feel free to do any kind of organization in the university and as an international student, we really succeed in doing it. We started our activities by establishing "Language School", we basically tried to teach our mother languages to the other students Turks and internationals, it lasted for one semester and we have got a good feedback from those who were taking these classes. Our university supports us in this respect. Yeah! I'm a Şehirian and proud of it

Sara Aljuneidi / International Trade and Management

I chose İstanbul Şehir University with full confidence. I have made this decision based on the fact that ŞEHİR would be the best University for me, since I will study in English and still have the opportunity to learn Turkish language which is very important today as there is a lot of links between the Arab countries and Turkey especially in Trade, economy and culture. Having a  good knowledge in both English and Turkish will positively  increase my chances in my career.  Istanbul Şehir University has the best campus which is a great institution where you meet very good and responsible people. I am so impressed with the  modern  campus, professors, teaching staff  and how kind and helpful they are.

Erkan Oruçoğlu / History

At ŞEHİR, which raises individuals who can create a solution for the global problems by incorporating interdisciplinary with international features, the dreams I had in my childhood while looking at the encyclopedia of geography remained nothing.  As a ŞEHİR student, carrying out studies with the researchers coming from eight different points of the world at “the Global Problem-Solving Consortium” of George Mason and having an active part in the social responsibility projects in Denmark and Germany was far beyond my childhood dreams. While exploring my boundaries, I also continue to build new castles in the air without boundaries.

Burak Altun / Electrical and Electronics Engineering

I am one of the 300 lucky students entering ŞEHİR in 2010. At the end of three years, I have many things to say but the outstanding ones are the English education I have in my first year, solid communication I had with the faculty and the portrait of a second family I had here. ŞEHİR awaits you with all its sincerity and besides gives you the education required for you investing in future. If you are multilateral, resolved and determined, we welcome you among us.

Usame Yolcu / Islamic Studies

All your live, you make choices and shape your future accordingly. As a student of Şehir University Islamic Studies, I believe I have made the choice of my life. Because, as a university, Şehir is a place of those who aims the more and the better. As a school, Islamic Studies is the place of those who would claim that “Count me, too, in the Islamic thought, in Islamic world of the future”. As the founding students of our school, we learn English and Arabic at the same time in order to read the Islamic and Western world  of future right. Come and determine your place in future with us!

Felister Gesare Orangi / Electrical and Electronics Engineering

The warmth, the support and recommendations granted to me in İstanbul Şehir University, proves that this place is not only a school but also a family which has a single aim. This aim is to reach the sky… The variety of students coming from Turkey and all over the World enables the exchange of both ideas and cultures and thus, it teaches us once more that the World is the home of all of us. I am here and I am happy. You should be here, too
