Program Overview

*Applications to this program have been suspended until further notice.*

Boğaziçi University is one of the most respected public universities in Turkey.  Its beautiful, park-like campus is located on a hill overlooking the Bosphorus Strait, or Boğaziçi  in Turkish, giving the university its name.   All classes are offered in English and students study alongside their Turkish counterparts in every class.


Boğaziçi University is one of the most respected public educational institutions in Turkey.  The University began in 1971 on the campus of Robert College, which was established in 1863 as one of the first American schools outside of the United States.  This beautiful, park-like campus is located on a hill overlooking the Bosphorus, or  Boğaziçi  in Turkish, giving the university its name.  In keeping with its roots as an American College, all classes at Boğaziçi University are offered in English.  UA students participating in the summer term may select courses from across academic disciplines, including Turkish language.




Turkey is a rapidly modernizing country with both European and Middle Eastern identities. The Turkish people are known for their hospitable nature, Turkish cuisine is famous for its richness and the country offers a rich history. 

Straddling the Bosphorus, its skyline studded with domes and minarets, Istanbul is one of the truly great romantic cities. Its history can be traced from Byzantium to Constantinople to its place at the head of the Ottoman Empire. Today it hums as the cultural heart of Turkey.  Students can walk the streets where crusaders and janissaries once marched; admire mosques that are the most sublime architectural expressions of Islamic piety; peer into the sultan's harem; and hunt for bargains in the Kapali Çarsi (Grand Bazaar).


Participants in the summer term have two on-campus housing options:

Ucaksavar Dorm: Single or double occupancy room in a residence run by the university.  Linens provided.

Superdorm: Single occupancy room in a privately run residence.  No linens is provided. Students can either bring their own or buy them from the Superdorm Management.

Students may also choose to arrange their own off campus housing.
