About Beykent University

Beykent Üniversitesi is a university with campuses in three different parts of Istanbul, Turkey

The university has eight faculties: arts and sciences; fine arts; law; economics and administrative sciences; communication; engineering and architecture and medicine and dentistry. There are also several vocational and academic schools. The university offers nearly 70 undergraduate and 50 postgraduate programmes.

The university began life in 1995 as part of an agreement between the university’s founder, businessman Adem Çelik, and John Moores University, Liverpool. A couple of years later, Beykent became an independent, not-for-profit university and now is attended by nearly 30,000 students with over 600 academic staff.

Two of the university’s campuses are in the coastal region of Büyükçekmece. The medical, arts and sciences and dentistry faculties share a building with a shopping complex that involves hotels, cinemas and restaurants. Beykent Üniversitesi hospital is also based there. The other campus is in walking distance and houses the vocational school and the university’s distance learning centre. Büyükçekmece is about an hour west of central Istanbul by car.

Another of the university’s campuses is in Sariyer, the northernmost region of Istanbul. The university’s base there is close to the main business centre of the district, which is filled with skyscrapers.

The most central location is in Taksim, close to one of the main tourist thoroughfares of the city. Beykent’s law school is among the departments of the university operating in this part of Istanbul.

Beykent students have access to 57 different student clubs and the university’s male volleyball team won the gold medal in the 2018 European university games.

Ahmet Davutoğlu, who served as prime minister of Turkey between 2014 and 2016, was once the chairman of the International Relations department at the university.
