Uluslararası Final Üniversitesi

Rector’s Message

Dear Students and Parents,

Final International University (FIU), is an institution that aims to graduate people who have assimilated and can apply modern science and technology not only for the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus (TRNC) and the Republic of Turkey  but also for all countries in the world, especially the Middle East; West, Central and East Asia; Africa; and Europe. In this context, our university has an understanding of management that adopts the principle of comprehensiveness and shared wisdom through its faculty members, staff and students.

Our university, which started its education in 2016-2017 academic year, was established in Kyrenia on the Sea coast of TRNC with the cooperation of Final educational institutions from Turkey and DMG-Akgünler group from TRNC in 2015. Four years ago, when the academic year started, we had about 90 students enrolled in our university; 70 of them were from third countries and the remainder were from TRNC and Turkey. Some of these few students righteously had concerns and were asking questions, such as, Can Final/FIU succeed as a newly established university? Are their diplomas recognized? Can their graduates get jobs?

Today, as of June 2020, we have nearly two thousand students from 47 countries and 52 percent of them are from third countries other than the TRNC and the Republic of Turkey. As can be seen from these numbers, Final/FIU is now a young university with a fast and healthy growth performance. We gave our first graduates in June 2020 from the Faculties of Educational Sciences, Science and Literature, Economics and Administrative Sciences and Engineering, as well as the Schools of Physical Education and Sports and Tourism and Culinary Arts. The Faculties of Law, Architecture and Fine Arts and Health Sciences will also give graduates in the coming years. The diplomas of the Final/FIU are recognized and their equivalences are provided through the institutions in Turkey.

Some of our graduates found employment immediately after graduation; some of them started their working life with the job guarantee given to some departments by the Final Education Institutions and the DMG-Akgünler Group, and others through the institutions where they carried out their internships.

We have selected faculty members from all over the world who strive to engage our students in education effectively, want them to be interrogative and encourage them to be entrepreneurial and competitive at a global level. These faculty members also endeavour to educate students who have assimilated cultural and human values that are beneficial to the community.

Our goal and wish is to educate high-quality graduates with the education we provide guided by contemporary science, technology, inclusivity, cultural and human values, entrepreneurship and competitiveness and to take our place among the best universities in the world.

Wish you/us all the best in the future.

Prof. Dr. Hüseyin YARATAN
