Uluslararası Final Üniversitesi

Rector’s Message

Dear Students and Parents,

Final International University (FIU) is not an institution only for students from the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus (TRNC) and the Republic of Turkey, but also aims to educate students from all counties of the world and especially from the Middle East; West, Central and East Asia; Africa; and Europe. FIU aims to graduate students who can internalize and apply modern science and technology, in a context that has a management approach that adopts inclusiveness and common sense of faculty members, administrative staff and students.

Our university was founded in 2015 in the city of Kyrenia in the North coast of the TRNC with the cooperation of Final Educational Institutions from Turkey and DMG-Akgünler Group from TRNC and started education in the 2016-2017 academic year. In the 2021-2022 Spring semester, nearly four thousand students from 63 countries continue their education. 62 percent of our students come from countries other than the Republic of Turkey and the TRNC.

FIU is growing at a fast pace. As of today, it continues its education with nine faculties, three schools, three vocational schools and an institute. Our university provides education with 39 undergraduate, 20 graduate and seven associate degree programs.

We are growing, but without sacrificing quality. We attach utmost importance to quality in education and this is apparent from the fact that our instructors we employ are not only experts in their fields, but also have high level of  expertise in teaching. We hire faculty members from all over the world who strive to actively engage our students in the teaching-learning process, ask them to be inquisitive, and encourage them to be entrepreneurial and competitive at the global level. In addition to the efforts they give to teaching, our instructors strive to educate students who are useful for the society and who assimilate cultural and human values.

We are constantly improving our infrastructure, and we equip our laboratories, workshops and classrooms with high quality and state-of-the-art devices of instructional technologies for the use of our instructors and students. We organize our dormitories, transportation vehicles and cafeterias for our students to lead a peaceful, healthy and quality life.

Our first graduates were given in June 2020 from the Faculty of Education, the Faculty of Science and Arts, the Faculty of Economics and Administrative Sciences, the Faculty of Engineering, the School of Physical Education and Sports, and the School of Tourism and Culinary Arts. The number of our graduates has been increasing over the years. Of course, FIU's diplomas are recognized and their equivalence is provided through institutions in Turkey. Our graduates can find jobs right after their graduation; some of them start working with the job-guarantee for some departments given by Final Education Institutions and DMG-Akgünler Group, and some of them through the institutions where they complete their internship. Others, on the other hand, decide to continue their education by enrolling to Master's programs.

Our aim and wish is to raise highly qualified graduates by using teaching methods that take as a guide contemporary science, technology, inclusiveness, cultural and human values, entrepreneurship, and competitiveness and to take our place among the best universities in the world.
