About Medipol University

Overview of Medipol University 

Istanbul Medipol University aims to pave the path toward gaining wisdom for all its students. It was founded by the Turkish Foundation for Health Education and Research and the foundation’s founder, Dr. Fahrettin Koca.

It has two campuses located in Haliç and Kavacık, in Istanbul. As a part of a metropolitan city, Medipol University offers a colorful experience of education. This education is offered on two continents, with one college and vocational schools. 

The university is formed in tune with the Bologna Process. One of the most important parts of this process is the European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System (ECTS). Accordingly, Medipol University has adopted this system. 

ECTS allocates all components of a study program and gives each kind of work what it deserves. These works include theoretical courses, applications, seminars, examinations, assignments, and independent studies. This considerate approach makes them a leading university with a strong organizational culture and a spirit for business. 

Currently, Istanbul Medipol University offers programs mainly in the fields of health and medical law. Istanbul Medipol University tuition fees depend on the undergraduate program. The language of education is also a significant factor in this situation.
