SUNY Partnerships in Turkey

Istanbul Mosque, TurkeySUNY began a system-to-system partnership with the Turkish Council of Higher Education (YÖK) in 2000, developing relationships between 11 SUNY institutions and 7 Turkish universities. The star program of the partnership is an undergraduate dual diploma program in 16 academic fields which has enrolled more than 3,300 Turkish students, including more than 1,400 graduates thus far.

The dual diploma program received the Andrew Heiskell Award for Innovation in International Education from the Institute of International Education in 2007, under the category of international exchange partnerships.

Office in Turkey

In 2004, SUNY established an office in Turkey, located at YÖK, to coordinate the programs and work with students and the consular sections of the U.S. Embassy and Consulate on the visa application process. The office also serves as liaison between our campuses and their partners and assists in the development of new programs. The office has recently relocated to Istanbul.
