History

FINAL INTERNATIONAL UNIVERSITY (FIU) was founded in 2015 in the Kyrenia district of North Cyprus as a partnership between Final Education Institutions, a premier educational brand in Turkey, and the DMG-Akgünler Group, a leading operator in the tourism sector in North Cyprus. In the 2016-2017 academic year, under the umbrella of 3 faculties and 1 vocational school, the university opened its doors to students with 7 undergraduate programs. In the 2017-2018 academic year, our university will continue its educational activities with 13 programs within 5 faculties and 1 vocational school.

Final has been providing educational services for over 40 years. With its 415 educational institutions, it has raised students at every level from kindergarten to high school. Until now, over three and a half million young people have fulfilled their dreams through education at Final institutions. Final employs 12 thousand teachers and is also one of Turkey’s most active book and magazine publishers. With the establishment of Final International University in 2015, Final made its entrance into the higher education sector.

DMG-Akgünler Group meanwhile started its activities in 1978 under the name of Akgünler Tourism. Since then, it has continued to invest in accommodation, transportation, tourism marketing and cargo services, becoming one of the top operators in the sector. It has invested in many tourism establishments, notably Acapulco, one of the most important hotels in North Cyprus. It is also the leading organization on the island for tour organization, and air and sea transportation.

We believe that this strong partnership between Final Education Institutions, Turkey's top educational brand, and DMG-Akgünler, the outstanding company in the North Cyprus tourism sector, will also achieve great success in the field of higher education.
