At GYS, students are expected to conduct a research in a field of their interest. Students have the opportunity to do research in a college campus setting under supervision of a professor. This once in a lifetime opportunity is unique for high school students who have passion for ``love of learning`` and prove their academic excellence for college admissions. It helps students to discover their interests, their passion, become ready for university and to solidify their career goals.

Our Mission

We believe that, without early experiences in university settings, it is hard to make the right decision for future educational and career plans. Our mission is to guide young minds to find their academic path at early ages through academic experience.


When expressing their individual opinions and values, students, the administrative and academic staff at GYS act together irrespective of their titles, positions, and exhibit readiness to meet challenges with their libertarian attitudes.

GYS students take their decisions based on objective data and information, independent of external manipulations and without allowing conflicts of interest; they fulfill their duties with a sense of responsibility in light of ethical values, scientific criteria and the rule of law.

GYS students embrace the environment which enables the ability to follow scientific developments at an international level and to contribute to such developments, and which motivates the desire for learning and research, the conduct of scientific research and education at high standards in a framework of universal ethical principles, and the community of students and faculty selected, again through high standards, as the fundamental constituents of GYS’s high academic quality.

With an awareness of the boundaries of their knowledge, ability, and authority, GYS students act boldly and resolutely in fulfilling their responsibilities and solving the issues they encounter, and when necessary, self-criticize.

GYS students follow and implement novel methods and approach in technology, education, research and management, and develop unique systems, programs, and constructs that will serve as models in line with the needs of the society and universities.

GYS students adopt an investigative/critical approach before making a judgment, while accessing information, conducting scientific research, or when social issues are in question, and come to a conclusion by analyzing cases in an objective manner.

Embracing the fact that their success and positions are deserved rights as a natural consequence of their competence and perseverance, GYS students safeguard that recruitment and other evaluation processes are conducted on the basis of objective standards and self-efficacy.

While GYS students consider and protect the rights and freedoms of others, they regard diversity as a wealth, oppose any kind of discrimination and exhibit an unbiased, egalitarian approach based on respect to humanity in all their relations.

GYS students deem the conduct of scientific research and development, education and training activities without being subject to pressures and influences other than scientific criteria, and the creation of free discussion environments to this end, as the invariable conditions of scientific freedom.

GYS students are responsive to social problems and develop opinions on solutions to them, conduct social responsibility projects and engage in outreach activities for the widespread internalization of science and the scientific approach by the society.
