One of the oldest inhabited cities of the world with a history of close to 6,000 years, Gaziantep has hosted Hasan Kalyoncu University (formally known as Gazikent University) as its first foundation university. Interestingly, Gaziantep is the only city in Eastern or Southeastern Turkey that has three universities. Its fundamental objective is to educate men and women for tomorrow who share universal cultural values, believe in freedom of expression, have a global vision, and possess the highest standards of integrity and morality.
A New Center of Learning in a Middle Eastern Knowledge-Based Society
The university is convinced that the Turkish language should continue to play a vital role in all spheres of higher education. However, in order to interact with international scholarship, we have decided that both Turkish and English should be used as mediums of instruction in varying degrees.
The university aspires to be the leading tertiary learning center of the Middle East. With an outstanding English medium education in place, wants to be the center of gravity for students of non-Turkish speaking backgrounds, particularly those from the Middle East, Central Asia, the Caucasus, Africa, and the Balkans. The university believes that Hasan Kalyoncu University is soon to become the preferred site of higher education for international students of the region.
Open to The World
Globalization has created a necessity for university students to know about different countries, cultures, and universities. Hasan Kalyoncu University provides some excellent cross-cultural opportunities for our students, such as:
Helping students to study some part of the English preparatory program abroad.
Participating in Erasmus exchange programs to complete a part of their education in the universities of European Union countries.
Sharing the same campus with lecturers and students from different cultures.
Arranging reciprocal visits with universities from all over the world.
Always Supporting You
HKÜ CASE(Centre For Academic Support and Employability)
Hasan Kalyoncu University established the “Centre for Academic Support and Employability” in order to provide you with effective career planning strategies and employment opportunities.
As part of our graduate programs in the Institutes of Social and Natural Sciences, It has been offering both Masters and Ph.D. programs.
The Double Major Program of Hasan Kalyoncu University enables students to have double degrees. For instance, whilst studying economics a student may also take courses in business management, potentially graduating with degrees in both Economics and Business Management. The Minor Program, on the other hand, allows students to enroll in courses from different departments, thereby increasing their knowledge in their desired fields.
