Located in Ankara, the capital city of Turkey, Cankaya University is an institution that was first established in July 1997.
The university is owned and run by a private foundation and was first intended as a transition for students of a private secondary school in the city.
In 2011, the university moved onto its current site, known as the new campus, where students can today enjoy a huge range of modern academic and recreational facilities.
These facilities include a dedicated sports centre, allowing students to partake in fitness, table tennis, squash, basketball, volleyball, tennis and handball. As a result of these facilities, the university is able to also provide several sports clubs, as well as sports courses for local schoolkids.
The campus also provides a range of academic facilities including a large modern library and science labs, as well as dedicated buses between Cankaya University and Ankara city centre. In addition to this, Cankaya also plays host to a number of annual festivals and celebrations.
Subjects on offer at the university include law, engineering, architecture and various arts and science-based disciplines.
The university works hard to ensure a welcoming environment for international students, and to foster good relationships with industries and international institutions.
