We were at Yeditepe
Good facilities such as restaurants, bank, shops, ticket office, buses, library.
Good and quick help of International Office; quick responses, very clear.
Good cooperation with the copy shops for inexpensive books.
Very good to give students one week free at the dorms, so they are able to find houses themselves.

In retrospect, I consider the ERASMUS semester as worthwhile and personally enriching time in my life. Not only because of Yeditepe University of course. Istanbul took me literally by the hand and gave me a complete new point of view on society and my interaction with life. I would strongly advice everybody to take this intercultural challenge.
I enjoyed campus life at Yeditepe. The facilities are very well equipped, but the food there is a little too expensive. The administration was magnificent!!! I was always heartily welcomed and helpfully advised. Thank you for this experience.

I am satisfied with the work of your office, all the employees were helpful and kind even at the beginning when I felt lost and asked stupid questions. However in my opinion more programmes could have been organised for international students. I do not mean primarily trips but something like an international food festival.

I would lıke to say that in general I had a great time and that I think Yeditepe does a lot for the internatıonal students and contributes to a nice time at İstanbul for any exchange student from Yedıtepe. I would certainly want to stay longer at this university if I had the chance, which is not the case unfortunately. My comments on
Int.office Yeditepe - the processing of information and degree in which people were/are helpful is very good, efficient and high
- the chance for students staying at dorm the first week, but being offered the opportunity to find a place outside is very possitve; the information being provided about what has to be done, what is expected and what is possible is very good and complete
Department of Philosophy - the coordinater was more than helpfull and available for any problem; the teachers were very good about the subject matter; and very good Turkisch classes

I really had a great time at Yeditepe University. The campus is very nice and the teachers are very good. There teaching, language and knowledge are high. Yeditepe University offers a lot of social activities and sports which is very nice too. I really enjoyed it to sit on the campus in the sun and drink a çay.

I have to say that I have great experience with International office and all the professors I met at my department. I was studying here only for three months, but everyone understood me, when I explained that I want to be focused only on the field research. Also I got help from professors every time when I needed one.
For conclusion I can say in my short feedback, that I can highly recommend to all the students who want to collect data for bachelor degree student exchange at Yeditepe University. I am very thankful for everything.

In my opinion Yeditepe University has very well organized International Office. Mrs Zumrut never lef me without information or answer when I was asking about something. I'd love to say also that she is so kind and friendly person.
Whole University is very huge ( I mean CAMPUS) and I really admire the views. There are the dogs in the school area:) I liked that. The teachers and Coordinators are also very friendly and ready to help you in any kind of problem. I was in the few trips for Erasmus student and it was pretty exciting. Student's society in the Yeditepe was organizing also many occasional parties. They were really valuable. I could see even real turkish dance or join to Christmas Party. I guess you will be very happy studying in the Yeditepe : )

I did enjoy staying in Istanbul and studying in Yeditepe. The international office was always helpful and so were teachers and other students.
Tony Stenlund, Helsinki Metropolia University of Applied Sciences - Finland
I was pleased with the orientation; it was very informative and made me feel very welcome. The orientation gave a lot of information about Istanbul and how to get around the city and I enjoyed all of the free items we received such as maps, guidebooks, and more. I also was glad that YISS was an available club for incoming students; I had a lot of fun at all of the events and trips that they planned. I definitely made a lot of friends through YISS and I’m glad I took advantage of the opportunities they presented.I enjoyed my classes for the most part, my professors were very enlightening, and the International Office/YISS were very welcoming and helpful.

I see Yeditepe University like very very good school and I am grateful for the choice i did come to study here. I have decided to study at Yeditepe also in the spring semester, cause i have the possibility to study exactly what i need and want. I have a combination with Plastic art department and Visual Communication Design,I can create in the graphic classes and to learn softwares. That is exactly what i was planing to study in this year, to go deeper with my free art creativity and improve my software skills, so i want to thank to all the people who helped me to be here, who cares about me and who are always open and patient to all my question. I have found the people at the University very polite and helpful...thank you to all.I have already talked with department coordinator at my home university and I was recomending and giving her very positive opinion about Yeditepe. I have also talked with my schoolmates who were asking me about Yeditepe and they were really happy to hear about my experience...so i think that in future there will be more students coming to Turkey and study at Yeditepe.
Also the campus is very beautiful and I really enjoy every morning coming to school and spend my time here...I like very much the little forests, open grass, the comfort of the buildings and the high equipment which I can use.
I just want to say one big THANK YOU for the chance to study here, the time I spend at Yeditepe will always stay in my mind like very valuable and great time of my life and i will be speaking about Yeditepe in the very very good way.

This experience was really great for me. It’s nice to learn so much new people from different countries and share your experiences. My English is definitely improved during this semester. It’s also good to get involved in another culture with different values. The Turkish culture is very different from the Dutch culture. The best experience for me was the Cappadocia tour. We had a lot of fun there for a really good price! Unfortunately this University is so far away from Taksim.
