Student Reviews

A Special Journey
Anonymous rated 4 out of 5 stars

The journey of studying architecture in Istanbul was great, since this city is very rich with architectural history and heritage. A part of me was disappointed because my expectations were so high, but real life is always surprising. This is why I am hoping and aiming to continue this journey in a new country to enrich me with a different experience.
