University Description

Why Bandirma Onyedi Eylul University?

We live in a rapidly changing and transforming world. Those who lag behind, unfortunately, are confined to remain behind in the relay race. Considering this fact, Bandırma Onyedi Eylül University is a big family with its staff and students who take giving education, making studies, providing service and finding solutions, all of which are to have international quality on as a duty.
We care very much about being a citizen of the world.
We are heading for a world order in which the importance of borders are going to be lost in the near future. Holly Mevlana has a very meaningful metaphor that summarizes the attitude we need to take against this changing and transforming world. In the metaphor, the human is likened to a compass. "In my belief, the compass’s pinned foot is fixed, yet I travel the world with the other foot! "says Mevlana. As Holy Mevlana puts forward, we follow all the developments, being aware of our own values ​​and potential.
Bandırma Onyedi Eylül University prepares its students to be capable of working both in our own country and abroad. We give importance to raising our students’ self confidence. 
The World today is a cycle of life long learning. We have to contribute to our country’s target of coming up level of contemporary civilization by updating the knowledge we get from educational establishments. Bandirma Onyedi Eylül University gives great importance to enterprising, innovative, cerative and analytical thinking. We always take human as a focal point in our studies. In the light of reason and science and also with an understanding of national and moral values, we will continue to work and produce for the sake of humanity as we did before.

Education System in Turkey:

1- Preschool Education

Children in Turkey can attend non-compulsory preschool education before the compulsory primary school education. State and private preschools are available.

2- Primary and Secondary Education

Compulsory education for children starts with the primary education at the age of 5½ and comprises elementary (4 years) and middle school (4 years) education. At the end of the compulsory primary education, students take standardized exams to qualify for various secondary schools. The length of secondary education is also 4 years and divided into two categories; General High School Education and Vocational and Technical High School Education. State and private primary and secondary schools are available.

3- Higher School Education


The higher education system in Turkey is supervised by the Council of Higher Education (CoHE). The CoHE is an autonomous institution which is responsible for the planning, coordination and governance of higher education system in Turkey in accordance with the Turkish Constitution and the Higher Education Laws. Universities decide upon their own academic calendars; however, academic year generally starts in September and ends in June. There are winter and summer breaks. Summer school is also available at some universities.

Turkish universities offer:
* Associate's degree programs
Bachelor’s degree programs
Graduate programs
* Post-graduate programs.  

Associate's Degree Programs:
Associate’s degree programs take 2 years. Vocational high school graduates can qualify for associate’s degree programs without taking any centralized exams. 

Bachelor’s Degree Programs:
Bachelor’s degree programs generally take 4 years. Specialized bachelor’s degree programs, such as medicine (6 years), may be longer.

Graduate Programs:
Universities in Turkey offer a wide range of graduate programs. While master’s programs take about 2 years (non-thesis master’s programs generally take 1½ years), doctoral programs take about 4 years.

Post-graduate Programs:
Post-graduate opportunities are also available in universities in Turkey. Duration depends on the program and university.

The Turkish National Qualifications Framework for Higher Education (TYYÇ):
 The National Qualifications Framework for Higher Education in Turkey (TYYÇ) developed with reference to the Qualifications Framework of the European Higher Education Area and the European Qualifications Framework  for lifelong learning was adopted by the CoHE in 2010. 


The monetary unit is the Turkish Lira (TL). Traveler’s checks are not favored in Turkey. ATMs can be found in even the smallest Turkish towns. Most accept international credit cards or bank cards (a strip of logos is usually displayed above the ATM). Almost all ATMs have a language key to enable you to read the instructions in English. Most commercial establishments accept international credit cards such as Visa, Master Card and American Express.


The value-added tax, here called KDV, is 18%. Hotels typically combine it with a service charge of 10% to 15%. Value-added tax is nearly always included in quoted prices. Certain shops are authorized to refund the tax so you must ask about this.


The electrical current in Turkey is 220 volts, 50 cycles alternating current (AC); wall outlets take Continental-type plugs, with two or three round prongs.
