The university is acting jointly with the universities in the national and international mosque. In this context, we have continued to increase our quality of cooperation in the scope of national and international exchange programs aimed at strengthening the quality of higher education, cooperation of higher education institutions with each other and the business world. We continue to increase these cooperations every year as a result of negotiations with different universities abroad. These programs provide opportunities for students and academics to work in different cultures, to upgrade their academic knowledge and experience, and to find employment in different countries. Agreements made up to this time will be an important tool for future joint projects. Being a more active university and at the same time making good use of these agreements, both foreign and incoming foreign students will be able to contribute to our University becoming a recognized university on international platforms.
