Bahcesehir is by far the best university in Istanbul for an American student to study.
It is a dynamic university with a wide variety of course offerings in English.
And, it is located in a vibrant neighborhood on the shore of the Bosphorus.
KEI has gone to great lengths to create a cultural program that will expose students to as much of Turkey and Turkish culture as possible!
Istanbul, founded in 660 BC, straddles both Europe and Asia.
Formerly known as Constantinople, the city served as the capital of the Roman, Byzantine, Latin and Ottoman Empires.
Archeological and historic sites are abound - Hagia Sophia Church, Basilica Cister, Blue Mosque, Topkapi Palace and Roman Aqueduct are just a few examples.
Today, Istanbul is the economic, cultural and historical center of Turkey.
