Overview

Turkey is the brother country to Azerbaijan. This is known from history that our countries had been co-operating with one another in many fields. In addition, we have similar language, culture and people.

I knew that educational system in Turkey was developing year by year, and it was almost equal to American educational system. I expected to see qualitative education: highly qualified professors that graduated from world known universities, modern infrastructure that stimulated people to study, and friendly staff. That was all available at Sabanci University.

Of course education was on high level. Many people emphasize the difficulty to study here, but it is “sweet” complexity that can be solved. However, it hugely differs from education in my country: adaptation to new system took some time.

I will never regret to have come to Turkey, since it was my second homeland, even before coming to here and will stay like that for a long time. But we sometimes miss our family, and it becomes difficult to live alone.

There is big difference in educational system of our countries. We have 11 year school system, but it is 12 in Turkey. Also, for people who will study in university with medium of instruction of English, Turkish citizens mostly spend one more year to study English. But university system here is better, because it bases on world educational system whereby we can easily choose the courses we want to study.

Positively: Freshman year courses gave me new insight to life. For example, the course SPS(Social and Political Science) helped to deepen my worldview or ENG(English) assisted to prepare properly presentation, writing term papers and coursework. Negatively: It was very difficult to study some of freshman courses such as Natural Science, because I did not have the background about that, and it was little bit painful to pass that. I think university should have given chance to international students to choose first year courses, because they based first year on Turkish system. For example, Turkish students easily dealt with Natural sciences in university, because it was almost the same things they had seen in high school.
