NİŞANTAŞI UNIVERSITY: I WANTED TO BE A STUDENT
I am known as a Nişantaşı resident for some reason... So I couldn’t ignore Nişantaşı University. I wandered around the university by saying “I would love to study there... Wish I was a student...” at each step... Here are my impressions:
NO OTHER CAMPUS LIKE IT: A campus that is comfortable, colorful, lively, full of youth, huge but not intimidating, implicitly technological... What’s more, it’s 100% disabled friendly...
PRACTICAL, NOT THEORETICAL Here’s the university’s motto: “30 percent theory, 70 percent practice...” So they designed a system which doesn’t require you to learn more after you graduate... They are aiming for an opportunity to carry you right to the middle of life and find employment.
NOTHING’S MISSING: Laboratories? All state-of-the-art... Simulation? Latest technology... Studio? All fully equipped... Classrooms? All smartest... Digitalization? Even the curriculum is digital...
YOU HAVE TO SEE IT: The campus has colorful streets that make you love science... Some kind of a huge technological park which aims to teach in joy, perform science in happiness, and learn with practice... It’s impossible to describe it, you have to see it for yourself.
LEVENT UYSAL: Levent Uysal, the founder of the university, is always a man with a smile... He has a young soul; his tastes, interests and curiosities are like a young person’s... It’s no wonder that the university he founded is overflowing with youth.
