Our non-Erasmus partnerships are administered through Bilkent's International Students Office, which include many universities around the world.

This list of current partnerships is open to expansion according to the demand. Our students and faculty are encouraged to offer suggestions. If there is a university that you would like to see added to this list, please contact me with the name and contact information of a faculty member from that institution who would be interested in establishing an exchange agreement.
