Mevlana Exchange Program of Turkey

To Whom It May Concern;

This letter is related to the Mevlana Exchange Program which is supported by Turkish Government on behalf of Sirnak University, Turkey.

Mevlana Exchange Programme is a programme which aims the exchange of students and academic staff between the Turkish higher education institutions and higher education institutions of other countries. With the regulation published in August 23, 2011, students and academic staff exchange between Turkish higher education institutions and higher education institutions of other countries has been possible.

Students may study abroad for one (minimum) or two (maximum) terms and academic staff may lecture abroad from one week (minimum) to three months (maximum). Accordingly, students and academic staff from any country may benefit from this programme being hosted by Turkish higher education institutions in order to study or lecture.

The original name of Mevlana, from whom the name of the programme is inspired, is Muhammed Celaleddin. Mevlana was born in 1207 in Belh of Horasan district that is now in the border of Afghanistan. The name “Mevlana” was used by Sultan Veled, Şems-i Tebrizi and his lovers, and virtually is a universal symbol which identifies with him. Also, he is known as Rumi by the western people. Mevlana lived in the 13th century, but as a sufi who got beyond the ages with his works, did not make any discrimination between people as indicated in his verse “Come, come whoever you are”. As well as his mercy, voluntary and unlimited humanity, he had endless tolerance and he impressed not only the world of Islam but also the whole humanity. He is accepted worldwide as an intellectual with his point of view to the people and life. UNESCO, due to the 800th anniversary of Mevlana’s birth, declared the year 2007 as Mevlana and Tolerance year.

Let us introduce you our university, Sirnak University. Sirnak University is founded by Turkish Government in 2008 in the city of Sirnak as a state university which is located on a historical province where Turkey and Mesopotamia has combined. It is new, dynamic and promising university with 2,547 students and 250 administrative and academic staff. Theology Faculty, Engineering Faculty, and Faculty of Economics and Administrative Sciences are three faculty of undergraduate education of Sirnak University. Moreover, Theology Faculty has its own master program.

We would like to exchange our students to improve cultural diversification between two countries, to advance academic improvement of our students, and to allow them utilize living in different a country.

We believe that in this global world, our students may take advantage of academic excellence, research and social opportunities of your university, and improve their academic level and social progress.

Due to the level of English Language proficiency of Sirnak University students is high enough to allow them to study and research in a foreign country, we thereby certain that you will be satisfied with/by their academic excellence.
