HASAN KALYONCU UNIVERSITY


One of the oldest inhabited cities of the world with a history of close to 6,000 years, Gaziantep has hosted Hasan Kalyoncu University (formerly known as Gazikent University) as its first foundation university. Hasan Kalyoncu University was founded as the first foundation university in Gaziantep in accordance with the decree of the Council of Ministers published in the official gazette on August 19, 2008, numbered 26972. HKU is designed as a centre of education, research and innovation.

The university has 6 faculties comprised of 24 departments, 3 institutes, 3 Continuing Education Centres located in İstanbul, Ankara and Gaziantep, a Distance Learning Centre, a Vocational School of Higher Education and a School of Foreign Languages (SFL) that provides high-quality preparatory program in English for about 7 years. The English Preparatory Program (EPP) is compulsive for English medium departments. Therefore, students whose departmental courses are conducted 100% in English or partially in English have to take EPP education at School of Foreign Languages for an academic year. EPP is optional for Turkish medium departments.

HKU, with its distinguished and highly qualified faculty members from around the globe, aims to become a world-class university. We aspire to be the leading tertiary learning centre of the Middle East, Europe and of Gaziantep in particular. Our students are equipped to be successful both in business and academic institutions with the high quality education gained during their training with us. With an outstanding English medium education in place, we believe that HKU will also become the preferred site of higher education for international students. We aim to train future generations of excellence who will contribute to the socio-economic development of both the region and the country.
