I have taken a lot of crucial courses about my degree and attend various seminars related to my profession. It’s been a beneficial 5 years of academic life for me.
Yasar university was really great learning experience of my life which focuses equally on both aspects of research and practice-based studies.
Overall I am satisfied with my teachers but I expect them to be more supportive. I think the promise of "practical education" of the department is contradictory, I wish there was a more free environment to show our creativity.
