Double Diploma of International University of Sarajevo (IUS) and Istanbul Technical University (ITU)

The International University of Sarajevo, as a socially responsible institution, year after year strives to improve the conditions of education at the IUS. Apart from having excellent connections with the labor market through various agreements, IUS is expanding its cooperation with other universities throughout Europe. One such agreement was confirmed at the end of April. Therefore, it is our great honor and pleasure to inform you that the IUS started enrolling students into a double diploma program with the Istanbul Technical University (ITU).

Cooperation on the double diploma project with the Istanbul Technical University has been in place since May 2018, and in the meantime, the Protocol on the Double Diploma Programs has been signed and all details of the agreement have been agreed upon. According to the agreement, the duration of studies for the joint programs will be four (4) academic years, and the education will be in English. The teaching process of the joint study programs will take place at the IUS for the duration of first and second academic year, while the third and fourth academic years will be spent at the ITU. In case a student needs an additional English language instruction, the student will attend the Preparatory English Language School at the IUS.

The four study programs that will be offered through this agreement will be Architecture, Mechanical Engineering, Economics, and Electronics and Communications Engineering. After successfully completing their studies, graduates will receive two diplomas, one issued by the IUS and another issued by the Istanbul Technical University.

Owing to the signed agreement, the IUS offers excellent financial terms to the students of these programs. Thus, for year 2019, the tuition fee for the double diploma program is 4,000 EUR at the IUS, while at the ITU tuition fee is 12,000 Turkish liras, or 1,750 Euros, per one academic year. The tuition fee is paid according to the existing institutional procedures.

The Istanbul Technical University ( is a state university founded in 1773, named "Mühendishane-i Bahr-i Hümayun" (Imperial School of Naval Engineering). The Istanbul Technical University is a distinguished and pioneering university of engineering, technical science and architecture with many innovative studies in the fields of science, technology, research and development. Being a university made mostly of faculties of technical sciences and research laboratories, the ITU works closely with companies and other industry and society partners. To this end, ITU has established many technology parks, incubation centers, entrepreneurship and innovation centers, and a technology transfer office. That way, ITU offers a favorable environment for students to build successful careers as professionals, to develop themselves, find opportunities for internships, and conduct research projects.

Since the number of places is limited, we invite you to take advantage of the opportunity offered to you by the IUS and enroll in a double diploma program.
