The University of Nisantasi, one of Turkey’s largest and most respected, will establish a university campus in Guzelyurt, Education Minister Kemal Durust has said.
The new university will be established in September at the latest, and will offer places for 500 students. Durust also stated that the new university will contribute to the development of business and services in the area.
He noted that despite rumours that Guzelyurt would be returned as part of the Cyprus solution, this was out of the question, he said. The area has been underdeveloped since 1974. However, businessmen and the local community have toiled to develop the region.
He went on and added that initiatives will be launched so that local business and investors could build dormitories and housing for the students.
“Be prepared for growth and development in Guzelyurt,” the minister said.
