Education language is fully  English and this add superiority to the graduates who are able to workin EU or non- EU countries. The curriculum of each department has been designed to meet the needs of modern world. Methods for production and processing of food and  agriculture in new era is different and needs novel methods. KFAU’s educatioan system contains these new dimensions as well as traditional ones. The university has double/multiple/joint degrees (minor and major programs) between its faculty and departments and keen to establish international joint diploma programs. Students in first, second and third cycles (including study and training) are the terget groups of mobility activities. KFAU is part of one of the biggest food producing industry (ABH Holding-TORKU) in Turkey and provied excellent opportunities for training mobility. Our partners should be specifically from food and agriculture specialized institutions and sectors but also open to others from EU or non-EU countries. The education structure is important and must be compatible with KFAU. Bilateral agreements are planned between EU partner and associe countries.
