Psychological Counseling and Guidance
The Psychological Counseling and Guidance Centre aims to provide services to maintain the psychological health of students. University students may experience a lot of stress. Due to the issues experienced in the transition from adolescence to adulthood (such as taking responsibility, individualism, decisionmaking and interpersonal relations), students may feel the need to seek help from a professional. Our psychological counseling service aims to provide students with the skills and knowledge to support their personal development, solve their academic, social and personal problems and help them to cope with the stress of daily life and support the students in their mental, emotional and social development at the highest level. Students may contact the Psychological Counseling and Guidance Centre directly to receive developmental and preventive care services.

The Centre aims to facilitate the studies of our disabled students by removing all barriers to their university education. Furthermore, the Centre carries out various activities to increase sensitivity to the issue and raise awareness among the academic and administrative staff and the entire student body. The Disability Counseling and Coordination Centre organizes face to face meetings with our disabled students to identify the status of their disabilities, their issues and needs, to develop individual solutions facilitating access to learning materials and examinations. The Centre also meets with faculty administrators and academics to develop solutions for students with special needs to take part in lectures and examinations.
