About Aksaray University

Aksaray University was officially founded in 2006 but its origins can be traced back to 1986 when the Technical Sciences Vocational School was established. This school was a department of the Selçuk University and then the Nigde University when it opened in 1992. The university became Aksaray University in 2006.

The university is located in Aksaray, a city in the Central Anatolia region of Turkey. Aksaray is known as a transit town, particularly for those travelling between Ankara, Konya and Nevsehir. However it is also home to some historical buildings including the Grand Mosque, the Egri Minare (Turkey’s version of the Leaning Tower of Pisa) and the Kizil Minare Camii (mosque with a red minaret).

With 12 faculties on offer, there is an expansive range of courses available for students to study. These include education, engineering, and Islamic studies. The university also boasts 17 research centres, six vocational schools, three institutes, one college and one training and research hospital.

The Health, Culture and Sports Department is responsible for protecting the physical and mental health of the university’s students and stuff. This is achieved by ensuring that quality nutrition, shelter, sports, psychological counselling and guidance services are available to every member of the university.

The university’s International Office opened in 2007 and has since developed partnerships with a number of higher education institutes around the world. These partnerships help the university in its mission to create a multicultural campus by increasing the number of international students. These foreign partnerships also facilitate the exchange and collaboration of academic and scientific research.
