Study in the global country where the
East meets the West!
The East and the West meet in Turkey, which is the gateway of
both Europe and Asia. Surrounded by the Mediterranean and Black
Seas, this country stands at the intersection of diverse cultures
and seminal historical periods. A vast range of historical events
and socio-cultural expressions have distinctively shaped the
environment of contemporary Turkey.
Visits to various cities and cultural sites will provide the
participants with an immediate experience of the rich historical
and cultural wealth of Turkey. Inhabited since the Neolithic era,
it has been home to the Hittites, Greeks, Byzantines and Ottomans.
Turkey provides a vast array of traditions and customs, as well as
a unique view of multiplicity within its own borders.
