We Came Fourth in UNILIG


We achieved important success in the interuniversity sports competitions held in the Universities Sports League (UNILIG) this year, as in previous years. 

Our University, which raises the level of academic quality in higher education every year, and focuses on social benefit and positive contribution to local dynamics with its projects, continues to be a shining star in its region with its achievements in the field of sports. This year, we ranked fourth after Gazi, Marmara and Atatürk Universities in UNILIG competitions in terms of the number of medals.

Dean of the Faculty of Sports Sciences Prof. Dr. Alper Karadağ, in his speech on the subject, made the following statements: “believe in the positive effects of sports on the individual and society, we started education activities as the School of Physical Education and Sports in 2016 in order to enable talented young people to receive education in this field and to grow directly in sports. Later, as the Faculty of Sports Sciences, we accepted our first students in 2017, in the planned process that we continued on our way. In a short time, we started to make a name for ourselves as the Faculty of Sports Sciences, with the newly established undergraduate, graduate departments and the talented sports students.

While our Faculty of Sports Sciences ranked 23rd in the inter-university sports competitions held with the participation of 170 universities in 2020, it ranked 4th among Turkish universities with 9 gold, 5 silver and 4 bronze medals in sportive competitions in different branches held with the participation of 187 universities in the 2021-2022 academic year. Contributing to this success, I would like to thank our Rector Prof. Dr. Fethi Ahmet Polat, all the relevant administrative units of our university, our lecturers and students.”

Expressing his satisfaction with the UNILIG rankings, our Rector Prof. Dr. Fethi Ahmet Polat spoke as follows: “we are proud of the sporting achievements of Muş. We are working hard to make these achievements permanent with an academic discipline. The Faculty of Sports Sciences is one of the most visible faces of our University with its qualified achievements. We will continue to support this interlocked team and our students running with them, as we have done so far. I sincerely congratulate all our academicians, in particular, Assoc. Prof. Dr. Ömer Kaynar and Prof. Dr. Hüseyin Kırımoğlu having worked as an administrator in the establishment of the faculty, and our current dean Prof. Dr. Alper Karadağ and our dear students who sweat for these achievements.”
