Supported by national and international technical trips, seminars, conversations, conferences, vocational and artistic exhibition activities, an "integrated education approach" that goes beyond the curriculum aims to contribute to the cultural and intellectual levels of our students as well as supporting their professional processes. Exchange programs with the Berlin International University of Applied Sciences, international summer/winter workshops held every year in Japan, Spain, Austria and Italy, and our Erasmus/World Exchange connections are some of our important educational activities that we can evaluate in this context. The location advantage of our campus, which is close to everywhere in Beşiktaş/Yıldız, the center of Istanbul, while supporting the teaching of history and theory courses from a contextual perspective, on the other hand, it inspires the treatment of project topics that focus on the needs and problems of the city in design studio courses.
