What Do Our Parents Say About Us?
In uNiK, I believe that we make the right choice for my 4-year-old son with learning based on learning in a quality, natural, warm environment, while his soul is nourished, his body is also fed with clean real foods. and being solution-oriented, it is one of the plus features.
He loved his school from the first moment he entered the door. My favorite parts of this school are the sincerity and freedom you feel as you enter the door. They really treat and evaluate each student separately. The founder of the school, Sümeyye Hanım, is an incredibly sweet person, she is open to all kinds of crazy ideas, negative or positive criticism. It is a school where you will not feel the business mentality at all.
They have a different methodology that guides the child to acquire new knowledge. My son started yoga, dancing, learned notes, speaks Italian words. In the sense that we know, instead of a classroom environment, there are open areas where children will feel more free. No bell is used to switch between lessons. Different classes come together with art workshops and transfer to each other. The child's spirit is not crushed under the weight of academic education. They don't send much homework to the house.
As an educational member of the uNiK family, I don't know if I could find another school to entrust my daughter to. From the Founder of the School, to the teachers, to the cleanliness and safety, everyone is warm and passionate about their job like a family. A developing school established in the recent past, and it is progressing on a positive path. The school is full of innovations and it is always updating itself.
The school administrator is very equipped and humble about education. My daughter, who is studying in primary school, made a smooth transition from kindergarten to primary school. From the service to the cafeteria staff, from the teacher to the principal it's a family environment . Thank you Mrs. Sumeyye
An international school with more than 24 different nationalities
where everyone learns as far as she/he teaches
One difficult thing is to choose the most suitable teachers who believe in the mission of education and are capable of supporting our children to the maximum. One more difficult thing is to develop and enhance their performance day after day in a continuous improvement process. The most difficult challenge is to maintain that team and keep them motivated and passionate about their sacred mission.
How we choose them
Our team consists of native English teachers, both in language and in way of thinking. We also have a qualified Psychologist to accompany teachers in everyday classes. We have the best Turkish teachers to teach the required subjects from MEB. Most of our teachers are coming from, and has teaching experience in, the same neighbourhood of Etiler in order to preserve the distinguished culture of this unique community.
what makes them unique
Our children do not consist of numbers or exam results. The place where they spend the longest time should be the happiest. The school must be a home, a nest, a place to have fun, not where they compete with each other over figures. There must be a place where they learn to love, respect, share, be a good person. Being a good person is one of the most important things in life.
It is different from others
Methods we apply
at uNiK international kolej, we depend on a recipe to make sure that we meet the "one of a kind" needs of every child.

There are never two identical fingerprints, same goes for human beings. Each one of our kids is a different, unique story. Therefore, education is not about producing copies of the same standard student. Everyone of us has his own unique personality interwoven from different set of colours, tastes and shapes. Everyone of us has his own recipe of traits, hobbies, skills, ways of thinking or expressing, likes and dislikes, or let us call them his/her “languages”. Everyone of us has a unique destination where he/she will, and should, excel and innovate.
Our Staff are coming from diverse cultural backgrounds. Our leaders are characterised by multidisciplinary experiences. Our minds believe in uniqueness of each student. Our methods use interactive learning strategies. Our thoughts are about children centred learning. Our plan is focused on children having daily opportunities to learn actively with their hands, minds, and emotions. Our teachers are monitoring; Our parents are sharing; Our community is involved.
We do believe that the education process should be continuous in the classes, corridors, playgrounds, food courts, way to home and in everywhere kids could be in or dream of. So we planned and designed our school to be the best place for creativity for each child in the group.
Our mission at uNiK Koleji is to support our kids through their lifelong discovery journey exploring their destinations; to consolidate their key skills and traits; and to help master their set of “languages.”
One day, if the right path is trodden, our kids’ dreams will come true and absolute happiness will be achieved.
To promote innovative solutions , inspire actions that create positive, sustainable future for children. While children need stimulating learning environments that provide the knowledge and skills, they need to tackle the challenges of this century.
Our curriculum includes everything we do both in and outside of the classroom. Our perspective on education, reflected in our curriculum, is that we are not filling a bucket, but rather lighting a fire. We cannot possibly teach everything that there is to be learned. Thus, we endeavor to teach students to “learn how to learn” by giving them the skills to do so. Most importantly, we aim to instill in our students a love of learning as a passionate pursuit in and of itself. Our curriculum is centered on teaching our students how to take control of their own learning. We focus on teaching students to ask the right questions and be confident searching for answers. By developing “critical skills” in our students, we prepare them for their journey as learners for the rest of their lives. Students are welcomed into an environment that is engaging, challenging, inspiring, and nurturing. Learning experiences are created that foster inspiration, promote the development of a core set of academic skills and learning habits, and that encourage students to ask questions, explore and identify their core values and passions. Based on the slogan “inspiring leaders of change”, and trying to apply our school’s mission and vision, we designed our curriculum that is seeking for helping our students to achieve wisdom. That is why our work was mainly directed to build our learner’s personality through developing the seven aspects of:
▪ Knowledge & Thoughts
▪ Language & Communication
▪ Attitude & Ethics
▪ Roles & Responsibilities
▪ Strength & Health
▪ Crafts & Skills
▪ Habits & Tidiness.
