IFA Paris Campus in Istanbul
After being established in France and China, the IFA Paris fashion school is now also present in one of the most vibrant cities located at the crossroads of Europe and Asia: Istanbul.
IFA Paris is very proud to cooperate with one of the most reputable university in Istanbul: Kadir Has University. Founded in 1997, Kadir Has University is located in the historical grounds of Tekel Cibali Works, which began operations in 1884 as the state tobacco depot and cigarette factory. Between 1998 and 2002, the Tekel Cibali Cigarette Factory was transformed, by the Kadir Has Foundation, from a warehouse that produced and sold tobacco into an institution of higher learning. After four years of restoration work, Kadir Has University Cibali campus officially opened its doors on February 13, 2002. Now the new Kadir Has University campus combines elegant facades, sunny atria, and large, airy interiors with quality education and research facilities.
The campus of Kadir Has University represents a major step in fulfilling the university's mission of building a future out of the country's past, by establishing in the heart of Istanbul a hub where culture, education and learning meet to address the changing needs of Turkey and the world. The interior of Kadir Has University’s Cibali campus measures over 45,000 square meters, with classrooms, labs, and the university’s central library, in addition to faculties, institutes, the rectorate and deans' offices. IFA Paris believes it is a privilege, as well as an advantage for its students to make the best out of what the location can offer.
Being one of the most exciting and dynamic cities in the world, and a diversified place full of museums, galleries, parks and modern colleges, Istanbul is able to provide a stage for those who long for exploring and developing their own interests, and start a career in Fashion and Luxury Business environment.
