Short history l.jpg
Short History

  • Gazi University is one of the few universities whose history dates back to 1920s.

  • Right after the declaration of the Turkish Republic, the founder of the Turkish Republic Mustafa Kemal Atatürk and his friends decided to establish an educational institute. This resulted in the establishment of the 'Teacher Training Institute' in 1926.

  • In 1929 the institute was given the name 'Gazi Teacher Training Institute' and continued to educate students under this name for many years. In the Academic year 1949-1950 the institution was given the name 'Gazi Institute of Education'.

Short history8 l.jpg
Short History

  • In 1982, the institution got the name Gazi University together with Ankara Academy of Economy and Commerce, Ankara College of Technical Teachers, Ankara Girls' College of Technical Teachers and Ankara Government Academy of Engineering and Architecture. Actually this university is the continuation of the tradition starting with Republic with a new name.

Gazi University in EU Programmes

  • As known Turkey has started to participate the European Ecucational programs fully as of May 2004, by the Memorandum signed with the European Commission.

  • For the call year 2004, Turkey was given the authority on for the promotion of Leonardo Mobility projects. For this call year Gazi University has proposed a total of 36 Mobility projects at different fields.

Gazi University in EU Programmes

  • All of the projects have been approved after the evaluations and the University got a budget of approximately 900.000 € for conducting these projects.

  • In the call year 2004 the total number of accepted projects was 215. And Gazi University led the first among all Turkish Universities and associations in respect of the accepted institutional projects.

  • In the call year 2005 of the Mobility projects Gazi University still remained its first position among the Turkish Universities and organisations with its 11 accepted projects amounted to 400.000 €.

  • Turkey has taken the opportunity to propose Leonardo B ve C type projects firstly for the call year 2005.

Gazi University in EU Programmes

  • In September 2004, Gazi University has given a total of 8 pilot project proposals.

  • Two of these projects have been invited to submit full proposals

  • And finally one of them (this project) have been approved by the European Commission.

  • In the call year 2005, the number of accepted pilot projects from Turkey is only 5.

  • This is probably due to the inexperience in the programme.

  • Of the 5 accepted projects from Turkey, the highest amount of Leonardo contribution was awarded to PP 178 009 with a budget of 374.616 €.

  • In the full proposal we have anticipated the Leonardo contribution as 384.000 €.

  • The Commission experts have found all details of the project successfull. There was no critise about even the small detail of the worpackages, aims, partnership, valorisation etc.

  • The only small changes made to the project were done by the budget experts considering the European Commission’s determined staff rates in the partnership countries.

  • There were no other changes.

  • Operational and subcontracting costs were accepted as it is proposed
