We can say with complete confidence that we arededicated to educate the country’s future, as the vast majority of our studentsform the elite of the Turkish society; in varying degrees, they are involved inelecting the direction of Turkey’s development. This is the most importantresult of our work, we are proud of it, and we look into the future withconfidence.

Oneof the key tasks of the university is to increase the students’ mobility, todevelop the “integrated” educational model. It’s especially important todaygiven the gradual emergence of the international labor market, give the evergreater internalization of the knowledge in the humanities. Diversity is an important goal forus. In the first year of the university 7 % of the students come from abroad. Wenow educate students from, three continents, Asia, Africa and Europe.

We havebuilt the learning and teaching organisation at our university, we have builtthe knowledge society, but it does not secure the happiness and the future ofour population. We need to learn how to apply the wisdom on our knowledge anddecisions patterns. In the whole history of modern society the university wasunderstood as a place of wisdom, as a workshop of humanity. The outgraduateswill allways remember Medipol University within this context.
