Istanbul Aydın University, Turkey


Studying at the Bosporus!

Istanbul is not only the largest and busiest city in Turkey and one of the largest and liveliest in Europe, but also impresses with wonderful weather, good food, and many famous historical sights. Istanbul is located partly on the European continent, partly on the Asian continent and so it is not surprising that this city is famous for its cultural diversity and the contrasts between East and West, between Islam and Western modernity. Students studying abroad will certainly be able to get to know both of Turkey's most interesting sides.

The private Istanbul Aydin University is located in the west of the city near the Atatürk airport and thus largely escapes city noise and hectic. Founded in 2007, it already has approximately 27,000 students and offers a total of 98 different educational programmes. The city's location strengthens the university's effect as an educational centre, bringing together international students from all over the world.

Based on your grades, your letter of motivation and your language skills, the International Office will decide on your nomination at our partner university. Once you have been nominated, you will receive information on the online application procedure.

Application Process

We have an ERASMUS partnership with the IAU and a certain number of exchange places per semester. You can apply for these places.

The ERASMUS application procedure is divided into two steps: 

Step 1: Application to the EBC University

You apply to us for a place at university and for the ERASMUS scholarship. Please register at the International Office and upload the following documents:

  • Letter of motivation in English (one page maximum); include up to two alternative ERASMUS partners in the last paragraph of your cover letter, in which you would be interested if we had to cancel your first request.
  • Performance record of the EBC University (via the virtual campus)

The best applications will be selected from all applicants of the EBC University, it counts academic achievements, language skills and the quality of your motivation letter, in which you show that you have dealt with your desired university.

We will inform the successful students by email and ask them to explicitly accept their place. If you accept the place, we will nominate you at the partner university and only then will you apply with the regular application documents for the university, see step 2.

If you have received a rejection, you will automatically be placed in the procedure for moving up to the alternative universities of your choice or we will try to offer you an alternative. We will then send you an offer by email. Once you have accepted the offer, we will nominate you with the partner and only then will you apply to this university with the appropriate documents (see step 2 below).

Step 2: Application to the IAU

After the EBC University has officially nominated you at the partner university, apply there. The application procedure differs from university to university. You will find out what you need to do soon after your nomination. The host university also reserves the right to decide on admission.

Istanbul Aydin University offers a very good overview of the steps to follow when registering under the following link.

Tuition fees

We have an ERASMUS partnership with this university. You can apply for an ERASMUS place (Attention - the number of ERASMUS places is limited).

For participation in the ERASMUS programme, an administrative fee of €1,800 is due. In this case, no further tuition fees will be charged at the ERASMUS university in which the student is enrolled.

Cost of living

An overview of estimated monthly costs:

Accommodation: 250€ - 450€

Food: 150€ - 250€ 

Transport: 10€ - 50€

Other: 40€ - 110€

So you should expect costs of 500 € or more per month.


Students who receive an ERASMUS grant can combine it with AuslandsBAföG.


Learning Agreement

Along with your application, you submit a Learning Agreement (LA) on which you enter courses or modules amounting to at least 20 ECTS credits that you would like to take. In Europe, the number and creditworthiness of the courses varies, so make sure you get precise information. The International Office and the Dean's Office will confirm your selection and ask for corrections if necessary. The LA is the basis for the recognition of courses at the EBC University and is therefore binding.

Transcript of Records

Your Transcript of Records, the semester abroad, proves that you have successfully completed the course. The average of your achievements is converted according to the modified Bavarian formula. 20 ECTS are hereby recognised and are included in the overall grade of your studies.
