Studying at Izmir University of Economics (IUE), which qualified for “A Plus” rating as a result of Turkish Universities Satisfaction Survey, and the most preferred foundation university of the Aegean Region, still continues. IUE offers prospective university students who were not placed into the programs they wanted, another chance during the additional placement period until September 11, to help them realize their dreams. Offering uninterrupted scholarships, guaranteed internships, employment references, and global business connections, the University lays the foundation necessary for students’ academic development through transfer, double major or minor programs. IUE Rector, Prof. Murat Aşkar stated that Campus Izmir, first model of university-city integration in Turkey, was established to meet the needs and expectations of the young people. The Rector said, “Prospective students, without having to go through the tough examination period again, are able to study at their dream program with transfer, double major or minor programs opportunities provided for them. They should really take advantage of this additional placement period.”
Scholarship of students, who enrolled at Izmir University of Economics, which increased its number of students 16% compared to a year ago, will not be terminated throughout their entire study at the University. Students can study at two programs at the same time thanks to double major program, or transfer from 2-year program to a 4-year program, and still receive their scholarship. Being supported by 80-thousand membered Izmir Chamber of Commerce, IUE help its students meet with the business world by offering them guaranteed internships. Employment references and global business connections help IUE students go a step forward in every way compared to their peers.
“Additional placement is a big opportunity”
IUE Rector, Prof. Murat Aşkar stated that additional placement period was such a big opportunity for prospective university students. The Rector said, “Students not being placed into their first choice of program does not mean everything is over. With the additional placement, they can start university education and later on, by other means like transferring, double or minor programs, they can study at other programs. At this point, Izmir University of Economics offers many choices. A student studying at a two-year associate program can take a transfer exam and transfer to a 4-year undergraduate program. For example, we have many students who transferred from Vocational School of Justice to Faculty of Law. Moreover, with double major program, they can study at two different programs at the same time. While offering all these to our students, we promise that their scholarship will not be terminated. Students, instead of experiencing another year of exam anxiety, can make the best of this opportunity and become a university student without losing time.”
“Dreams may come true”
Prof. Aşkar stated that the University raised inquisitive and innovative individuals. “Continuous improvement of the University, its increased accomplishments each year, depends on this awareness. While continuing with their studies, our students get a chance to perform internship, work part time at logistic centers, high technology zones, factories, hospitals, and government services of Izmir. We welcome all young people at the University who want to turn their dreams into reality. Additional placement period should be utilized well,” said the Rector.
