International Students


Sabancı University welcomes all students from other universities (both national and international) to a seven week, fully accredited summer study in İstanbul.

Students; who have Bachelor’s, Master’s or Doctorate diplomas or enrolled in universities other than Sabancı University can apply to the summer courses as a "special student" for degree credit, career advancement, or personal enrichment.

Our summer courses are provided in a wide range of Management, Social Sciences, Engineering, and Natural Sciences, and History related Research Languages (Ottoman Turkish, Arabic, Persian, Latin, Modern Greek) fields. You can easily find the best courses that comply with your goals. Please review summer courses, and select up to three courses which do not have a time conflict.

If you are willing to learn Turkish language, please visit our Modern Turkish Language and Culture Summer School Program which is designed especially for non-native speakers.

If you are a high school student, please visit our Sabancı University Summer School for High School Students.
