MEF University is a continuation of MEF Educational Institutions, which have been the benchmark of quality in primary and secondary education in Turkey since 1972.

MEF University is the first and only university globally to use the flipped learning method across the whole university and across all programs. In Flipped Learning, lower-level cognitive tasks such as remembering and understanding are carried out prior to the class hours, and students concentrate on the higher-level cognitive tasks – applying, analyzing, evaluating and creating – during the class hours through peer learning, facilitated by their instructor. At MEF University, knowledge transfer to students takes place prior to the class through course videos prepared by professors, and other supporting materials, all made available through a digital platform.
MEF University is endowment-supported university, established with the mission to graduate internationally competitive forward-thinking students and to bring together leading research-oriented scholars, who will make globally-significant contributions to their professions, to science, and to technology.
