'We learn for life, not for school’

Since its foundation, BİLGİ has attempted to establish a cultural and scientific community that promotes tolerance and respect for a diversity of individuals with different lifestyles, beliefs and ways of thinking within the framework of contemporary universal values, while at the same time maintaining strong ties with all segments of the society.

BİLGİ community includes more than students; it also includes faculty, alumni, families, employers and neighbouring communities where BİLGİ is located.

Being part of Laureate International Universities Network, the founding premise of BİLGİ has become ‘to make education more accessible and affordable so that more students can pursue their dreams’.

BİLGİ seeks to educate free-thinking, creative, intellectually curious and enterprising individuals who will contribute to a world in which knowledge is accessible to all and, indeed, in which access to it has come to be seen as a fundamental human right.

BİLGİ holds the primary responsibility for providing, maintaining and further developing an academic environment in which both students and faculty members are able to engage in learning and production of knowledge at the highest level.
