Visit the first American higher education institution founded outside the United States at Bogazici University. The university, established in 1863, bears strong ties to the American education system, with teaching entirely in English and a large foreign student population. Old stately buildings meet with long stretches of bright green lawns, lush trees, scenic walkways, and old lampposts. The campus provides spectacular views over the Bosphorus waterway, and lies in close proximity to a nearby fortress and the historical neighborhood of Bebek.
