Cankaya University

4.2 out of 5 (42 ratings / 40 reviews) Ankara, Turkey
Çankaya University possesses 5 faculties with 23 departments; 2 institutes with 28 postgradute master programs and 10 Ph.D programs; 2 vocational schools with 3 programs; and one English preparatory school to support English language education.



After spending over forty years in the field of education, next to Arı Primary School and Arı High School, an investment in higher education as well became inevitable. This endeavour was realized through the collaboration and genuine contribution of all the teaching and administrative staff as well as the thousands of young people who have attended these schools and also their parents. 


Çankaya University is an English medium university except for the Faculty of Law, the Vocational School of Justice and Public Relations and Advertising Department. Students who are evaluated to be unqualified for English attend the Preparatory School of English for a year.

The main objective of Cankaya University is to train individuals who are equipped with the universal skills of “accessing information” and “making use of accessed information” that are required by the information age that we live in.
