University Description

In a speech Vehbi Koç delivered in 1984 in Eskişehir, he alluded to his belief that a civilized future was only possible through well-educated generations. These were thoughts from the mind of an individual who personally took part in the establishment of the Republic, “We need to educate our youth as best as we can so that we can catch up with the developed countries of the modern world and be prepared for the future.”Koç University values and actively pursues a diverse campus, where different thoughts, cultures, values and personalities, not only co-exist, but also mutually contribute to the expansion of the individual and the collective.Students who wish to apply as International Students must hold the nationality of a country other than Turkey (stateless citizens and refugees can also apply). The applicants must have successfully completed secondary education in Turkey or at a school equivalent to that of a Turkish high school, or they must currently be in the last year of secondary education.Koç University provides outreach to a diverse array of many events including exhibitions, concert and plays mainly at Sevgi Gönül Cultural Centre (SGKM) that located in Rumelifeneri Campus, also at Research Center for Anatolian Civilizations (ANAMED) located in İstanbul city centre, Suna & İnan Kıraç Research Center for Mediterranean Civilizations (AKMED) located in Antalya and at Vehbi Koç and Ankara Research Center (VEKAM) in Ankara.Koç University is a non-profit university in İstanbul, Turkey.
