Dear Students,


With more than 30 years of educational tradition, our university provides important services not only for students but also for the future of humanity with its expert academic staff, technological infrastructure, social activities, R&D centers, course curricula integrated with the business world, career programs and all other investments.


Cevizlibag Faculty of Medicine, which accepts its first and fully scholarship students, Technology Center, Arel Park project, Arel Media office, Arel Village, Arel Sports Facilities and all other investments implemented in Kemal Gozukara Campus offer a very valuable physical space to scientists, students and the business world…


The fact that we ranked 14th in the URAP Foundation Universities ranking, which measures the academic achievements of universities, by rising 7 places from 2018 to 2020 also reveals the contribution of our academic staff to the field of science.


We implement important studies with the business world in order for our students to engage in production, science and development programs and projects, not with possible employment problems they may experience in the future.


Through Arel Professional (ArelPro), which continues its activities for this purpose, thousands of companies from different sectors in the business world are asked “What competencies and experiences do you expect from graduates?” and we learn the expectations. Taking into account the feedback we receive from companies, the course contents we have prepared enable students to enter the business world not as‘ inexperienced graduates’, but with the competencies and skills to meet the qualified workforce expected by the business world.


In the light of all these developments, Istanbul Arel University will continue to raise young people who will contribute to our country and humanity by protecting his legacy, based on the words of Gazi Mustafa Kemal Ataturk, “My spiritual heritage is science and reason”.
