Made connections with professors at Bogazici university and some students, developed my dissertation project, took saz (instrument) lessons - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
Studying abroad at Bogazici University was absolutely a worthwhile experience. I had the opportunity to explore a huge, beautiful city that I would have probably never been able to go to otherwise. I immersed myself in Turkish language and culture, met people from all over the world, ate amazing food, and learned how to cross cu... - Brandeis University View Entire Review
i learned so much and it was very worthwhile - Utrecht University View Entire Review
Academically, I learned a lot about the history of Western Asia/Eastern Europe that I had no exposure to prior my study abroad experience. I enjoyed the classroom discussions and assigned readings, while my classmates were very inclusive of the study abroad students. Turkey is a great place to travel while on a student budget, a... - Wellesley College View Entire Review
Past Review Istanbul
Turkey is great, I learned a lot but honestly did not feel challenged in the academic work and the teachers are very stubborn. As for the country, it's very nice and i am glad i chose Istanbul - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
My experience was more than worthwhile. I learned so much about the culture and politics of a country caught between Europe and the Middle East. I made lifelong friends and learned how to be more independent and confident in myself. I also discovered my passion for travel and how this was the first of many experiences abroad. - Bates College View Entire Review

This experience abroad truly changed not only my Duke experience but my life. It was 100% worthwhile and I honestly wish I chose to study abroad in Istanbul for a year instead of just one semester. Everything about this program was amazing and I wish I could tell every other student to choose it. - Duke University View Entire Review
Absolutely. It was incredibly challenging and I was in over my head. I went to the largest city in Europe, where I speak zero of the language entirely alone without any sort of program. In retrospect, it was arrogant and stupid to do it that way and paralyzed me in the beginning. I had done the same in Argentina a few years back... - Middlebury College View Entire Review
While I had traveled a lot before study abroad, living in a different country for an extended period of time gave me the opportunity to learn from other people's perspectives on a much deeper level. I learned to be much more open-minded and as well as more culturally aware to both the differences and the similarities. One of the... - Duke University View Entire Review
I learned the importance of going out of my comfort zone to grow. My semester abroad gave me perspective and gave me the room to refocus my priorities and focus on my goals for the future. - Duke University View Entire Review
Along with the general abroad learning experiences of gaining independence and new sense of flexibility, I learned an incredible amount about this area of the world. Being at the crossroads between Asia and Europe is an extremely interesting area to be in, and Istanbul proved that. I also learned that it is impossible to imagine... - Duke University View Entire Review

It was absolutely worthwhile. Especially having to live in a country where the culture is so different, and it's not just a Western European city or another English speaking country. The culture itself is so rich and vibrant. I gained a bigger worldwide view, and the people I met made me realize just how small this world really ... - University of Kentucky View Entire Review

I just loved being in a city where I could do something different everyday. Having the chance to hear opinions and gain knowledge on things I knew little about beforehand was priceless - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
I feel like I can take on challenges with a greater sense of courage and competence. I have a greater understanding of a culture different from mine, and it has truly made me a stronger, more compassionate person. - Macalester College View Entire Review
The program was definitely worthwhile and I strongly recommend it to anyone who is interested. - University of San Francisco View Entire Review
Past Review I Like It
Beyond learning Turkish, religion, politics, and cultures, I also learn how to LIVE. Turkey shows you another way of lifestyle. - Fordham University View Entire Review
Past Review Incredible
I gained a new perspective on life, time, and travel. It was worth everything! - Anonymous University View Entire Review
I learned how to experience other cultures more, and I grew more comfortable being my true self all the time. - Trinity University View Entire Review
I was very fortunate that I had the chance to be immersed in the Turkish culture and language for 5 months in one of the most spectacular cities in the world so that I could learn more about my Turkish heritage. I was also lucky enough to meet a wonderful group of students while abroad, which included Americans, International st... - Wellesley College View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with Bogazici University: Istanbul - Direct Enrollment/Exchange
I learned that the world is so much bigger than the bubble that is America. I met so many people from all over Europe, so I got to compare what my life and this country is like compared to theirs. There's something so exciting about going to a completely new place where you don't know anybody and having to figure everything out.... - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
This was a great experience, to learn about a unique mix of cultures in an incredible city. I am much more aware of global cultures as well as political issues. The food, the people and the atmosphere were all wonderful. - University of Portland View Entire Review
I learned a lot about another culture and saw the world through a different lens. I had a great time, and going to İstanbul is certainly worthwhile. Turkey is overwhelmingly Muslim, which stands in stark contrast to any place I had ever been to before. It was nice being immersed in another culture where most people didn't speak ... - Middlebury College View Entire Review
I learned a lot about making new friends, being independent, how to explore, how to take risks that stretch your comfort zone, budgeting money in the real world, Turkish, Turkish history, and current affairs. - Duke University View Entire Review

I learned how to be independent and to welcome challenging experiences. I learned that I grow and succeed most when I am out of my comfort zone. - Duke University View Entire Review
I learned that you can't control the chaos, but you can always keep yourself on track and enjoy your time -- do not wait around for those who might flake out on you to make plans and instead just go with your common sense and street smarts in hand and explore the city on your own time with your interests in mind first! if you wa... - Brandeis University View Entire Review
