Amasya university was established on 17 March 2006 in Amasya, Turkey. The history of the university goes back to 1974, when a teacher training institution was established in Amasya by the Ministry of Education. In 1975, the Ministry of Education also founded a vocational school in Amasya. In 1982 when the Higher Education Council was established, these two schools became units of Ondokuz MayÄ±s University in Samsun. In the 2011-2012 academic year, our university educates students through five faculties, including Education, Sciences & Arts, Architecture, Technology and Medical; one health vocational school; five vocational schools (Amasya, Merzifon, Tasova, Suluova and Gümüshaciköy); and two institutes (Sciences and Social Sciences).
