Boğaziçi University is widely considered to be one of the prominent educational institutions in Turkey. The university is located on the European Side of the Bosphorus, Istanbul (hence the name, which means 'University of Bosphorus'). The institution currently known as Boğaziçi University was established in 1971 on the campus of Robert College, which, in turn, was established in 1863 as the first American school outside of the United States.
