Başkent University, the first foundation university to teach health sciences in Turkey, was founded in 1993 with the cooperation of the Turkish Organ Transplant and Burns Treatment Foundation and the Haberal Education Foundation.
The university has developed and grown over the past eight years without governmental support. Through determined efforts, self-sacrifice, and confidence in our abilities, we have made impressive progress in a short period of time. The construction of the buildings began on campus in 1995, and many other facilities have been added since then.
Our high-technology medical equipment, significant contributions to esearch, and dynamic academic staff have made Başkent University a successful higher education institution.
The aim is to prepare students for professional life as broad-minded, competitive, modern and successful individuals who have a strong sense of team spirit. We have chosen to follow the path of science under the guidance of our great leader Mustafa Kemal Atatürk, who taught us, in his own words, that "The greatest virtue in life is science."
