Presentation of İstanbul University

İstanbul University (İstanbul Üniversitesi; website) is made of 16 Faculties, 2 Schools and 2 Vocational Schools. Some 90,000 students are taught by 5,300 staff members. The university manages 12 campuses, the main of them being Beyaz─ıt-Central campus, whose monumental gate, built in 1864-1869, is the symbol of the university.
İstanbul University is considered to have been first established in 1453 by Sultan Mehmed II in Zeyrek and Hagia Sophia madrasahs. Among the first professors was the mathematician and astronomer Ali Qushji (1403-1474), the head of Samarkand observatory. In 1470, the two madrasahs were incorporated into the Fatih complex, which included a mosque, eight madrasahs, a library, an hospital and a guest-house. Mulla Khusraw (d. 1480) was the first head of the complex. In 1557, Suleyman the Magnificent commissioned the architect Mimar Sinan to build the Suleyman complex, a peak in the Ottoman architecture and education.

In the 19th century, the madrasahs, deemed obsolete, were replaced by institutes of higher education called darülfünun, which were the core of the modern İstanbul University. Recognized a State school on 21 April 1924, the university was reorganized on 1 August 1933.
In the 1930s, the İstanbul University hired several German and Austrian scientists expelled from the Third Reich by anti-Jewish laws or for political reasons, such as the astronom Erwin Finlay-Freundlich (1885-1964), the botanist Alfred Heilbronn (1885-1961), the philologist Leo Spitzer (1887-1960), the mathematician Richard von Mises (1883-1953), the odontologist Alfred Kantorowicz (1880-1962), and the physician Friedrich Dessauer (1881-1963).
