Why turkey
For me as an international student, Turkey has a lot to offer: high quality education
and a very multicultural population, lively cities and beautiful landscapes and
many cultural events. Living and studying in Turkey will definitely help me
develop as a person and a student.
Turkey has become a center for economic growth and political stability in the
region. Turkey has one of the fastest growing economies in the world, is a member
of g20 with impressive economic development, and important member in NATO.
Also Turkey is very important partner to Romania, both politically and
economically. Outside of the European Union, Turkey is Romanias largest partner
in exports and 11th in imports, with a trade volume of 6 billion euros. On the other
side, Romania supports Turkeys bid for European Union membership.

As an Erasmus student in Turkey I have had the chance to experience the education
style in Turkey and was very happy to see that I has a more dynamic approach. The
teachers engage the students and motivate them while also being open to the
feedback of students, making very enjoyable courses.
Turkey has excellent universities, known worldwide, with very interesting study
programs. For me as an international relations student, I know that whenever
theres something happening on in the middle east, Turkey is the first country you
have to look to for an analyze of the situation. Because its a leading model of
democracy and stability in the region. For me, it would be amazing to study in
Istanbul, having the chance to live and study in a city so rich in history, culture and
diversity. Universities such as Bogazici, Istanbul University and many others have
great reputations and it would be an honor for me to be part of such learning
