No other slogan suits Bahçeşehir University like “A World University in the Heart of Istanbul”. With its main campus by the Bosphorus in Beşiktaş, each day starts early and the mobility continues throughout the day. It’s also very likely to run into an event at almost every part of the university.
One of the first things that you’ll notice when you enter our university will be the large number of foreign students. From the United States to China, France to South Korea, there are over a thousand foreign students studying at BAU. When asked why they chose BAU, there is one common answer: “Its central location and international power.” With its beautiful campus right next to Bosphorus, at the heart of the city, there is no further explanation needed for BAU’s location. In order to understand the international collaborations of our university, a short tour of our campus or visiting our website would be sufficient.
Transportation to BAU is quite easy. We provide free shuttle services to our students and scholars with our own boats between two of our campuses located at the heart of Istanbul: Beşiktaş North, Beşiktaş South, Göztepe and Galata. Our boats depart from an area named as “BAUPORT”. It is an area that is fully allocated for the use of our students, with its greenery and an exquisite view of the Bosporus. Our boats depart at scheduled times throughout the day from our own pier and this allows a pleasant journey between our campuses in Beşiktaş and Galata. This way, our students may stay away from İstanbuls traffic jam and enjoy the sea and fresh air, while getting from one campus to the other. Our campus in Galata specializes in the Communication Faculty’s work in new media. tablet publishing in digital media, digital game based learning of the news from the studio to the desk and many other workshops are available in Galata.
BAU does not only cater to undergraduate students but also organizes programs for graduates and graduate candidates. Our Graduates Office holds events throughout the year and our BAU graduate family grows each year while sustaining a strong bond even after graduation.
