From the Head of the Department

The Work Based Learning Studies Department was established in 2007 and it is the first of its kind in Turkey. We aim to enable accreditation and official recognition of professional learning and act as a bridge between the individual, the workplace and the university.

By establishing links with the Middlesex University, UK, we have become the first programme validated by British authorities in Turkey and the programme provides the benefits of a dual-diploma Master’s degree from these two respected universities for our graduates.

The Work Based Learning programme is uniquely designed to enable personal, professional and organizational growth by using an actual work role and the personal and organizational development objectives as the focus.

We invite professionals from various backgrounds to join us to discover their potentials, move forward in their careers and add value to their institutions.

Warmest Regards,

Alptekin Temizel
