International Students

Fenerbahçe University (FBU) is waiting for international students!
There are 20 undergraduate programs under 5 faculties and 13 associate degree programs under 1 vocational school at Fenerbahçe University.

The main reasons for being an international student at Fenerbahçe University are:

• Few students in small classes and faculties

 • Double major and minor program opportunities

 • The possibility of being with a classmate of talented and successful students from Turkey

 • Opportunity to study abroad in exchange programs with scholarships from university partners in the USA, Europe, and Asia

• A chance to study at a university with strong connections with the business sectors.

As the International Office (IO), we aim to assist and guide international students throughout their undergraduate studies. We support our students during their integration into their social and educational life to prevent foreigners from suffering during their education at the FBU.

The International Office is located on the L1 floor in the FBU main building. Please do not hesitate to stop by on your first visit and when you need help during your training period!
