World Education Established was founded to initiate a universal health-based university to contribute to both the academia and the life of our country through theoretic and applied scientific studies. In order to reach that aim we held several consultations with prominent intellectuals and people of science in our country. As a result of this survey, it is determined that a health-based university would be founded on the principles of thinking and acting in a scientific way, through research and universality. Founders and the board of trustees gave the university name of ‘Biruni’, a Turkish man of science who was declared a “universal genius” by UNESCO in 1974, as an appropriate name for both its mission and vision. Biruni University, with an aim to find and train our country’s next generation of Birunis, took its place within the Turkish system of higher education as a civil corporation after the Dünya Education Foundation applied to the Turkish Grand National Assembly according to Law number 6525 on 27 February 2014.
Our university is located in the city center of Istanbul (within easy walking distance of Marmaray Kazlicesme station, Cevizlibag metrobus station and close to Eurasia Tunnel), and offers a campus life intertwined with the historical fabric of Istanbul, opposite the Topkapı Walls.
To provide a university education being aware of the responsibility of fulfilling the prospects of the whole humanity through producing knowledge and applying it in healthcare areas; respectful to the diversity and value judgments of people; meeting the expectations of the students at global standards.
