Student Reviews

A Girl Who Wants More Education
Anonymous rated 3 out of 5 stars

I am a little bit unlucky that I have started university online. I think my university is good at managing online education. But I am not happy about the level of my courses. I wish that they were a little bit challenging. And I wish that I could experience life more in university and see new areas.

My experience so far at Bahcesehir University
Provided by ESN rated 5 out of 5 stars

Bahcesehir University is a very grounded university. Upon arrival, you might stumble a bit due to the language barrier and a few other factors but you soon start working your way round things and the system of the University. The academic aspect is very professional which I think is amazing. The lecturer's are very friendly and helpful.

I want to improve myself in every aspect of physiotherapy and be the best therapist for my patients but also I know I need to study more to achieve the best success.
