The vision of The Academic English Unit at Antalya Bilim University focuses on developing graduates that are critically-minded and research oriented global citizens who are aware of their responsibilities towards their future and the environment they live in. The Academic English Unit aims at producing well-rounded democratically accountable individuals who can independently generate new knowledge through a wide range of scholarly research. To achieve our vision we encourage the students to interact with their peers and present their written research findings. This focus fosters a positive, productive and supportive learning atmosphere. Subsequently, our students are exposed to a variety of up to date themes that range from globalization and freedom of speech to democracy and alternative sources of energy.
