Bahçeşehir Cyprus University is a private institution that was founded on 03.02.2016 and the first students were accepted in September 2017. English Preparatory School was established on the same date along with Bahçeşehir Cyprus University. The student intake has increased each year since 2017. The English Preparatory School is a unit within its academic structure that is attached to the Vice-Rector and the Rector. The main purpose of the English Preparatory School is to provide General English and Academic English Courses to the newly admitted BAU Cyprus students whose English proficiency levels do not meet the entry requirements to commence their Faculty Degree courses.
Bahçeşehir Cyprus University (BAU Cyprus University) is established as a member of the BAU Global Education Network. BAU Global Education Network includes higher education institutions and language schools located in three different continents (North America, Europe, and Asia). The main purpose of BAU Global Education Network is to assist students to develop an international vision by diverse academic opportunities provided by the member institutions of BAU Global Network which are located in different continents and countries.
Last but not the least, the medium of instruction is English at all BAU Global Education Network institutions. Therefore, English Preparatory Schools are important to the universities to give the best English education for one year to students not having sufficient proficiency in English, and they also can send such students to two language schools within BAU Global Education Network located in Toronto and Washington D.C. providing the opportunity to students to study at their prep programs in Canada or the United States.
