Istanbul, Turkey



SU Istanbul

Given the current political and security situation in Turkey, we have decided to temporarily suspend the SU Abroad Istanbul program for the 2016-2017 academic year.

We hope to be able to reopen the program for the Fall 2017 semester.

We hope that the situation in Turkey improves, and when it does, we will continue to develop innovative opportunities for faculty and students to acquire a deeper understanding of this important part of the world.

Thank you for your support of this program, and if you have questions, please contact Associate Provost for International Education and Engagement Margaret Himley (

Applications are temporarily suspended

Istanbul Center

The academic program in Istanbul combines the SU Abroad Signature Seminar and optional internships with the opportunity to take coursework in English alongside Turkish students and international peers at Bahçeşehir University. In addition to two required courses with SU Abroad faculty, most SU Istanbul students will enroll in three or four Bahçeşehir University courses.
