Last year Ibn Haldun University organized and hosted a first-ever “Social Sciences Summit for Prospective Students,” which was held over 18-19 July 2017 at Istanbul’s Ataşehir Grand Sheraton Hotel, and attended by more than 800 young university hopefuls.
This year’s Second Summit is being held in the same location over Saturday, Sunday and Monday, 4-5-6 August.
