About us

İstanbul Bilgi University’s Turkish Language Teaching Application and Research Center, BİLGİ TÜRMER, officially started in July 2013 and had its first meeting with students in October 2013. The classes, where the most appropriate learning methods are based on the distinct structural and semantic properties of Turkish, use both books that are put together according to European Language Portfolio’s language levels, and audio-visual materials that are prepared in line with the needs of the class and students.

BİLGİ TÜRMER is located at Santralistanbul, which is one of Istanbul’s finest campuses. There are free shuttle services to the campus from the city’s major hubs like Kabataş, Mecidiyeköy, Tophane, Osmanbey and Taksim.


BİLGİ TÜRMER aims to teach Turkish as a foreign language while at the same time giving an introduction to the Turkish culture.


The main mission of our center is to provide an effective learning atmosphere for participants wanting to receive Turkish language education from home and abroad.

Furthermore, BİLGİ TÜRMER aims to organize various activities, which support the teaching of the Turkish language through international foundations and corporations associated with the university.
