Being one of the best free education providers in the country, there is high competition among students to gain university admission. Since its foundation in 1942, the university staff, both academic and administrative, contributed to promote its standards to today’s level. In 2017, the total domestic student enrollment amounted to 19,000 whereas the figure for international student enrollment was over 200. In order to develop and sustain comprehensive, effective internationalization programs, the university established the International Affairs Office (IAO) in 2012. IAO is the key office managing partnerships with international higher education institutes and mobility schemes for Students and Academics.
