You should not be surprised when you go a university abroad and meet someone who is a student of IAU. While sending many students to abroad within the program of ERAMUS, at the same time Istanbul Aydın University receives many students from abroad. Stepping with the conscious of that scientific researches and developments are only possible through advanced technology and developments and the principle of “Technological University”, we provide uninterrupted service to our students in our foreign language, foodstuff and computer laborites with high technologies. In this context, it is not surprising that the biggest Techno-center of Turkey is in Istanbul Aydın University.

The doors of Europe are open for our students with IAU diplomas since IAU applied for “ECTS Label” and “DS Label” awards given by the European Commission to European universities which have passed the ECTS and DS Label applications in excellence, and won approval. For instance, if you have graduated from the Department of Business, your diploma is now valid in Europe. This is just one of the steps we have taken on the purpose of being “a global university”.
