I was an Erasmus student at İstanbul Kültür Üniversitesi.
High-quality education, a multicultural society, a rich history and the possibility of amazing travels influenced my decision to choose Turkey, especially İstanbul.
Our İstanbul Kültür Üniversitesi is an impeccable learning environment. About 50 Erasmus students from all over the world came to study in the fall semester. And we were very lucky with our Buddies because they gave us so much care and friendship that helped us quickly get comfortable at the university and in İstanbul.
Being an ESNer without any doubt is the most amazing thing happened in my life, being both an Erasmus student once and an Erasmus buddy for 4 semesters allowed me to meet with people from all around the world. During my backpacking across Europe I was always meeting with different friends who I met thanks to ESN. Then when I come to Istanbul, I had a lot of fun with my students showing them the different cool places in the city and helping them around as the other ESNers did to me during my Erasmus.
Here is what I thought of it and what took place for me:
My Erasmus-Semester in Istanbul was a great experience for me. I learned a lot about Turkey and myself, visited amazing places and met very nice people. The Erasmus Club at Kültür University played a big role in this experience. I met great friends there, they organized events and trips that I enjoyed very much, and my Buddy and the members of the board were always there for me when I had any problems or questions. I advise every Erasmus-Student that comes to Turkey to get in contact with ESN Kültür and to profit from the things they offer.
