The beginning of establishment of NEU goes back to 1988. The roots of the university was first established in the Evkaf Buildings located around Arasta region at the city center, and the English Preparatory School was its first department.

Significant advances both in academic and physical terms have been made throughout the 20 years that passed since establishment of the university. The first significant attempt was to move the university to its present location which was a deserted place before the establishment of campus. Then, within a short while the university made significant advances and the campus developed so that the deserted land turned into a small educational city. The English Preparatory School also made advances in accordance with the developments and needs of the university.

In 1993, in parallel to the increasing number of students and academic needs, the Education Palace which is an exceptionally well designed modern complex was built and English Preparatory School started to carry out its studies at this complex.

The developments of university in physical terms have led to parallel developments in quality of education. Eventually there will be changes and advances in time, however, one thing will remain the same, our mission, which is based on offering the best possible training system with best teachers.


The mission of the English Preparatory School is providing the students with a linguistic background in English so that they can cope with their departmental studies that are conducted in English, and make them familiar with the concepts and disciplinary terms of the university as well as gaining insight about the requirements of academic life.
