"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 advise everybody to take this intercultural challenge. I enjoyed campus life at Yeditepe. I was always heartily welcomed and helpfully advised. Thank you for this experience."
- Jan Peteler, Management Center Innsbruck-Austria
“The presence of such a robust international student population greatly benefits the entire university community and encourages educational, cultural and social ties at Yeditepe.” - Prof. Colten Hall, Yeditepe Visiting Professor USA, Faculty of Law

"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.
"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!"
- Jacco Oskam, Hogeschool Utrecht - The Netherlands
"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 very friendly and ready to help you in any kind of problem. I was in the few trips for Erasmus student and it was exciting. Student's society 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 : ) "
