    About the Istanbul University

    Istanbul University is the oldest and most established university in Turkey. The institute where I did my Ph.D. in history is the first of its kind in Turkey. This institute offers only master’s and doctoral education. Since there are too many lessons taken in one academic semester, I do not think it is possible to get enough efficiency.
    While some departments of the university are located in the area where it was first opened, faculties such as engineering, etc. are on a campus outside the city. I think this is a disadvantage. The quality of education varies from department to department. Unfortunately, the university is not in a good position in the world university rankings.

    A school that revives your desire to learn.

    Istanbul University is considered as the oldest university in Turkey, as its foundation is traced back to 1453. Naturally Istanbul University has the lead with the number of programmes they carry, with more than 10 campuses spread all over Istanbul. Its history provides an experience no other school can provide, as taking its warped marble steps reminds you of all the famous scientists, writers and politicians that once took the same steps as students. Our academics are highly qualified for their positions with many of them carrying a passion for teaching. After every class I find myself appreciating literature and wanting to learn more.

    It is not just a university. It is a story itself. It is just a place you cannot imagine. It smells like a history. It speaks to you. It answers you. When you are in this place, you feel like you are in ancient times.

    open reading

    This is the first university I’ve ever attended openly. As a student, the priority is the difficulty of the lessons. The recommended sources tell everything very clearly and clearly, be it about literature or history. Maybe it has started to keep up with today’s technology, but you can find a test like let’s learn with questions in the student system. It shows the wrong and right as soon as the signs are marked. Thus, we can find solutions to the questions that we may encounter in daily life.

    Istanbul University is the oldest university in Turkey. It is also one of the most populated universities with national students from all cities of Turkey and international students.

    It’s a great choice for people with fewer opportunities, especially financially. Istanbul is a very expensive city for its locals. The last years have been harder for people. So, Istanbul University being a state university means students have fewer expenses. That is a plus.

    The university however is not that student-friendly. The school does not provide students with their basic needs, such as clean toilets, toilet paper, or a healthy cafeteria. They are also political, and they suppress students who have opposing opinions.

    If I speak for my faculty (Faculty of Law), there is a great academic staff. It might be the best one if you think of them collectively. Their problems are being too hard on students for no apparent reason, being unreachable, suppressing students, and being egoistic.Passing a class is all about luck. There are no objectives to review our papers, we don’t have any chance to see if it’s reviewed fairly. This is against what they stand for.
