Atılım University Fully Accredited for 5 Years!

Atılım University is now among the six Turkish foundation universities to earn full accreditation for 5 years within the scope of the Institutional Accreditation Program (IAP) implemented by the Turkish Higher Education Quality Council (THEQC).

Currently, 13 Turkish state universities have earned their THEQC accreditation; with 7 conditional and 6 full accreditations in total.  Standing out among 210 Turkish universities, Atılım University is now among the select few to earn the title as we celebrate our 25th Year.

Initiated by THEQC in 2020, the Institutional Accreditation Program saw applications by 60, and 23 universities in its first, and second year; with a total of 19 universities to hold an accreditation status, either conditionally, or fully.

Following extensive studies with Atılım University Quality Commission, Directorate of Corporate Development and Planning, as well as academic and administrative units of the university within the scope of the accreditation efforts chaired by Atılım University President Prof. Dr. M. Yıldırım Üçtuğ, and the evaluation process by THEQC, Atılım University was greenlit for a 5-year Institutional Accreditation (Full Accreditation).

The Institutional Accreditation Program aims to enhance the national and international contributions, and the global visibility, of Turkish universities through evaluations with regards to the quality assurance systems of universities, as well as their education, research, social contribution, and administrative processes.

The program is also recognized by significant organizations such as the European Association for Quality Assurance in Higher Education (ENQA), the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA), the Association for Quality Assurance Agencies of Islamic World (IQA), and the International Network for Quality Assurance Agencies (INQAAHE). In addition, institutions accredited as per the program gain a competitive edge in terms of international visibility and validity.

Atılım University has adopted an operating model that focuses on the productivity of our working processes, the integration of academics, the sustainability of technological advancements, and the continuous improvement of our organizational structure.

With this title under our belt, Atılım University shall continue to pioneer, and reach new heights in our quarter-century quest for higher education in the groves of academe.

We thank, and congratulate our members for their contributions throughout our accreditation process.
