The devices used in virtual reality applications are becoming diversified and accessible at a more affordable cost with the development of technology. In addition, the number of platforms that allow the development of virtual reality applications, which have the opportunity to offer experiences such as immersion and presence for users, are constantly increasing. On the one hand, virtual reality technologies and related platforms offer significant opportunities for those who develop applications in a variety of areas such as education, healthcare, communications and, entertainment. On the other hand, it is an important research topic that whether the students who are currently studying in the IT departments of the universities have knowledge about the concepts that emerged with virtual reality technologies and the opportunities offered by these technologies. For this reason, in this study, it was aimed to determine the perceptions of the graduate students who are studying in the field of information technology about virtual reality related concepts and the opportunities offered by the these technologies. For this purpose, students who are studying at the Informatics Department at İstanbul University were selected as the study sample. A questionnaire was conducted to forty-one students to determine participants' experiences and perceptions about the future of virtual reality technologies. According to study findings, it can be said that there is a significant difference between HMD experience and points of participants for the potential benefits of virtual reality technologies in the entertainment field in the future (U=130,5, p= 0,012<0,05). Similar relationship was found for shopping (t=2,405, p=0,021<0,05) and for history (t=2,172, p=0,036<0,05) areas. It is thought that this situation makes a difference in the opinions of the participants about the future of these technologies because of the widespread use of virtual reality technologies in games, various companies in product demonstrations or in museums/exhibition areas. A statistically significant difference was also found between participants' attitudes towards virtual reality education and their perceptions about some virtual reality concepts (the points they gave according to their knowledge) (p<0,05). Therefore, in this study, although it has been conducted among students of informatics, it is believed that it is important to be educated about virtual reality to be aware of its concepts.
