Özyeğin University Ranks First in Overall Student Satisfaction for Three Consecutive Years
The results of the 2019 Turkey’s University Satisfaction Survey (TÜMA) were announced. Özyeğin University topped the “Turkey’s University Satisfaction Survey” (TÜMA) once again, holding its first-place position for the third time in a row! "Turkey's University Satisfaction Survey" (TÜMA) is a nationwide study conducted annually by the University Research Laboratory (UniRay). Previously, Özyeğin University ranked first in 2017 and 2018, successively. Özyeğin University was once again placed "first" in the TÜMA 2019 rankings for "Overall Satisfaction", marking a great achievement three times in a row. The ranking evaluates universities’ performance across different metrics, including campus life, academic support, professional development opportunities, and institution’s management and operation.
“The success we have garnered in 10 years is not a coincidence”
Özyeğin University Rector Prof. Dr. Esra Gençtürk remarked that since 2008, their priority has always been to make world-class education accessible to distinguished and talented young people from all corners of Turkey. “Grounded on a student-centered educational philosophy, we have always valued our students’ opinions in making our managerial decisions, we have always treasured collectively developing solutions for their needs, and we have brought meaningful and distinctive initiatives to life with our data-based, accountable management approach. The success we have garnered in the past 10 years is not a coincidence by any means. The fact that in 2019 we were shortlisted among the top 8 universities in the THE AWARDS program, the Oscars of Higher Education recognizing the best practices of universities for 14 years, in the “Outstanding Support for Student” category in recognition of our “Sectoral Education Program” is a great testimony to our student-centered education philosophy. All Özyeğin University employees, particularly our faculty, embrace the key principles of being accessible to our students and establishing solution-oriented communication. With the strength we derive from our students who have bestowed this honor on us once again by sharing their positive feedback through this significant survey, and from our Board of Trustees who have always supported us, we will continue to serve as a pioneer and an example in student satisfaction.”
