International Cooperation & Exchange Programs Configure
Our Door to the World
Özyeğin University (OzU) designed its strategic plan in commitment to the principle that internationalization enhances the quality of teaching-learning, research, social contributions, and student experience. In line with this principle, OzU endeavors to integrate all these aspects of higher education with an international approach, and create an environment offering abundant opportunities for intercultural interactions. To this end, OzU adopts a multi-dimensional strategy to support the creation of a multi-cultural student experience, student and faculty/staff mobility, international research & development activities, sectoral and international business collaborations, and the establishment of the necessary structures for serving the multinational world.
Özyeğin University designs all its academic programs based on the Bologna Process. To ensure the recognition of mobility and qualifications, and to uphold the principle of transparency, our curricula have been designed based on the European and national qualifications frameworks, and ECTS is used for credit transfer and accumulation. OzU was granted the extended Erasmus Charter for Higher Education in its first academic year in 2009. The Erasmus Charter for Higher Education was conferred for the period from 2014 and 2020, and the University actively contributed to the Erasmus program during this period. In December 2020, our application for the period 2021-2027 was accepted, and our institution was once again granted the Erasmus Charter for Higher Education.
