To the attention of our students

Dear Students;

As you know, education in universities suspended with the circular letter on March 12th 2020 by Presidency because Covid-19 has influenced all over the world. As a result of intensive work program with all the universities, The Council of Higher Education has decided that all universities in Turkey must go on the education by means of Distance Education.  

Istanbul Rumeli University completed all the preparations in a short time and started online education via Digital Platform on March 23rd 2020 successfully within the body of Distance Education Management (UZEM).

On March 26th 2020, The Council of Higher Education issued a press statement and they declared that we would complete Spring Term (2019-2020) with online education, not face to face.

After this declaration, our University Senate assembled and decided to postpone the dates of Midterm Exams unlike the academic calendar. The Rectorship is working on how to organize midterm and final exams. It will be announced as soon as possible. Summer term calendar for the projects and applied courses that cannot be taught in Distance Education will be issued in line with the deadlines set by The Council of Higher Education (YOK).

Dear Students, we kindly ask you to pay attention to your courses and homework during your online education. As a family we are on duty hand in hand with you in order to overcome those gloomy days. We will continue to inform you thoroughly.

Please, stay at home with online education and be safe

Warm Regards,


Prof. Dr. Hazim Tamer Dodurka,

The Rector of Istanbul Rumeli University
