A few key facts and figures about AGU:
The first steps towards founding Abdullah Gul University were taken, by the Kayseri City Council and other city notables, in 2007. The aim was to raise the profile of education in Kayseri in line with the city’s own vision of its development.
The University was named for prominent Kayseri citizen and the 11th president of the Turkish Republic, Abdullah Gül, who only accepted this honour on condition that the university would be dedicated to the quest to become a high-quality university that would be distinguished in Turkey and compete with international institutions.
The university was formally founded on 21 July 2010 as Turkey’s first foundation supported State University.
AGU admitted its first students in the 2013 2014 Academic Year. Education has been conducted at the site of Turkey’s first industrial complex, which is being transformed from being a place of great historical significance to be a place of great educational significance.

Cappadocia is a region and historical site (UNESCO World Heritage Site), situated mainly in Nevşehir province. Its boundaries are unclear, but it is generally considered to be around 15 000 km². All around you can admire the fairy chimneys and beautiful sunsets, as well as the remains of past civilizations, which have left behind underground cities, troglodytes, as well as cave churches and monasteries. The region also has one of the oldest wine industries!
The most famous activity to try out in Cappadocia, apart from trekking of course, is to discover the region while aboard a hot air balloon. Usually they start to rise up very early in the morning so that you can watch the sun rise on the beautiful reliefs of the Cappadocian landscape.
The region is also famous for its horseback riding, bicycle and Jeep and Quad safari tours.
After a long day discovering the many wonders of Cappadocia, why not enjoy a relaxing visit to a traditional hammam (for example in Ugrup, Nevşehir, or Avanos). Baryram Hacı is also particularly known for its thermal baths.
