About the University

Beykoz University is an exemplary university at international standards who believes that “Education is not preparation for life; education is life itself”.

Beykoz University is a non-profit foundation university, established in 2016 in one of the most beautiful and historical districts of Istanbul. The foundation for Beykoz University was built upon the first ‘thematic vocational school’ in Turkey; Beykoz Logistics Collage of Higher Education, which was founded and established by TURLEV (Turkish Logistics Studies and Educational Foundation) in 2008. Today the collage continues to preserve its thematic structure under the roof of Beykoz University.

Beykoz University provides high quality technical education and training in a multicultural and international environment and offers opportunities and recognition to its students through partnerships and collaborations that it has developed with other countries.

With the strong motivation of training qualified work force in the logistics sector, Beykoz University predominately focuses on applied training in vocational areas and encourages students to grow into creative and innovative individuals who are able to think critically and can adapt easily to the ever-changing global conditions. Having embraced the John Dewey quote “Education is not preparation for life; education is life itself” the university has adopted a progressive school system. Beykoz University provides “International Quality Assurance” to all students with curriculum programmes that are in harmony with international universities.

Beykoz University has been a proud home for many graduates who have become creative, competitive and qualified individuals on an international level and are shaping the logistic sector today.
