The Center for Excellence in Education (EDEP) is an extra-curricular educational institution for classical Islamic disciplines and social sciences. The center is based in Istanbul and follows the traditional madrasah curriculum, with a comprehensive and holistic view of education. The center was established  in 2014 with the aim of reviving the traditions of Islamic Civilization through the dissemination of knowledge.

It offers classes for female students studying at universities in Istanbul on auxiliary disciplines such as Arabic grammar, classical Islamic disciplines such as fiqh, tafsir, hadith, kalam, as well as social sciences. EDEP aims to combine the knowledge of Islamic disciplines with language skills through its distinguished academic Arabic and English classes. Since its establishment, it has proven that it has filled a gap in the field of higher education in Turkey, where students can pursue traditional Islamic disciplines in parallel with their modern university program.
