It is very student-friendly city, and my positivity about it extends beyond the University – the city offers a wonderful all-round quality of life. In my time here, I have connected with people in education and outside – Istanbul Şehir is magic. It has good people, a beautiful environment and, to top it all, an excellent University.”
