University Description

Marmara University is one of the oldest educational institutions in Turkey. Established on 16 January, 1883 under the name Hamidiye Ticaret Mekteb-i Âlisi, and affiliated with the Commercial, Agriculture, Forestry and Mining industry, Marmara University began its life in a house behind the Istanbul High School for Girls in Cağoğlu. The first graduates (13 people) matriculated in 1887. On 21 September, 1889 the school was affiliated with the Education Ministry; in 1893 the school was closed, with the idea that it would be reformed and reopened in the near future. On 15 October, 1897 the school, still affiliated with the Education Ministry, was reopened; from this date on the university has provided education.

The institution became known as the Istanbul Economic and Commercial Sciences Academy in 1959; in 1982, with regulations that were carried out, the institute became officially known as Marmara University and took its place among Turkish Institutes of Higher Education.

In the 1982 - 1983 academic year, education began at Marmara University, which consisted of 9 faculties, 1 school, 1 institute.
