Message of the Director

Respectively the Faculty of Pharmacy, the Faculty of Dentistry, the Faculty of Health Sciences (the Department of Nutrition and Dietetics and the Department of Nursing), the Faculty of Medicine and the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine were incorporated into the Institute of Health Sciences which was established in 2007.

Graduate and post graduate programs which are offered by almost all departments incorporated into aforementioned faculties and the participation of the School of Physical Education and Sports enriched the Institute of Health Sciences.

With the purpose of starting graduate and postgraduate programs simultaneously, all faculties and almost all schools were projected to offer an outstanding education program with competent academic staff at the institution that is equipped with the latest and most advanced technologies and laboratories by following contemporary universities lead and benefit from their experiences. Furthermore, Innovation and Information Technologies Center that is equipped with the fastest computers in the world, the Near East University Grand Library, Olympic Swimming Pool and the Health and Wellness Center are the valuables of the NEU campus. ‘Near East’ is the paragon of creation out of nothing. It was established on rocky, rugged and arid terrain in 1988. Near East University is a creation of ideas of the ‘minor’ island’s ‘major’ intellectuals. Training contemporary and young scientists who are competent, contemplator, interrogator, interpretative, innovative in scientific fields and liberal and who adhere to ethic values is a core of inspiration for the University.

Apart from all these, our island, situated in eastern of Mediterranean, offers various beauties with its history, culture, religious pattern, protected architectures, natural beaches, rich flora and fauna to those who want to rest, streamline their business , evaluate research results, and those who want to perform their hobbies.
