IU Rector Prof. Dr. Mahmut Ak made a speech about IU Preference and Introduction Days 2016 and added, “There are 214 thousand students in our university. According to the vacancy we will have, we will accept 30 thousand students. Our young friends are trying to get a result by planning where to study. They think long and hard about which university to enroll at. They are trying to enroll at a place where they can study with a good plan by looking at social facilities, academic staff, education opportunities and opportunities they will have after graduation. For that reason, we see an informed crowd of students. In our Preference and Introduction Days, candidate students are making their preferences in a relaxed and historical environment at the center of Istanbul. It is a productive process for both candidate students and for us as well. I hope that all of our young students can reach the program that they desire.”
