Incoming Students


Dear Student,
Thank you for choosing Okan University for your exchange programme. We will make sure that you return to your country with lots of good memories.

Please start getting to know us by taking a virtual tour inside our university

Okan University, in order to make students feel at home from the very first day of their arrival, implements a "buddy" system. Each incoming student is assigned a student mentor or a "buddy" at Okan who will accompany the student in the process of exchange. As soon as you send your application and are accepted by the related department, we will send you information about your "buddy" by email.

Welcome to Okan...
