Home Page

Istanbul Arel University supports the student clubs and their activities that are consistent with the University’s educational objectives and respond to the interests of the students. Student clubs are open to the participation of all the students of the University. Students can be members of the clubs, participate in the events and activities of the clubs, and can establish new clubs.

Student clubs enrich the campus, and thus the student life in so many ways. They provide opportunities for learning outside the classroom, engaging in the campus community, meeting other people, establishing beneficial relationships, sharing interests and knowledge, broadening one’s horizons, gaining experience, and developing life, work and social skills. Student clubs contribute to the students’ personal development, social abilities and awareness, and create an environment where students can share their interests, knowledge, culture and can exhibit their abilities. Through student club activities, students realize their individuality and sociality. Besides having a good and quality time, students gain experiences that contribute to their development.
