Summer School in Ankara

24 June - 13 July 2019
(3 weeks, 48 credit hours)
Registration Deadline: June 15th, 2019

The Ankara Hacibayram Veli University and the ORSAM Center are jointly organizing a summer school that includes several programs covering some major areas of interest. The course packages comprise (a) International Relations, (b) Management and Organization, (c) Leadership and Self-Development, (d) Computer-Assisted Research Methods, (e) Social Support and (f) Turkish Language. In coordination with the ORSAM Center’s expertise, the program is tailored especially for Middle Eastern citizens, but not limited to them, so applications from all interested individuals are welcome. The high-quality teaching will be combined with a stretch of nice summer weather and a collegial atmosphere. The courses will be taught in English and simultaneous Arabic translation can be provided depending on the number of requests. A certificate and transcript will be granted after the completion of the program.

Note: The Ankara Hacibayram Veli (HBV) University was born out of the Gazi University, one of the leading universities in Turkey, founded in 1926.  Last year the university was split into two as the Gazi University retained the positive science majors and the Ankara HBV University mostly comprised social science departments.
