Student Reviews

Atılım University
Zeynep Ilgaz Karabacak rated 4 out of 5 stars

One of the best universities in Ankara in terms of education, only the location of the school is a little far from the city center and the campus of the school is a little smaller compared to some universities, other than that, I am very pleased with everything

Atilim, an average university in a "not so student friendly" country
Anonymous rated 3 out of 5 stars

Studies are fully in English yet there are still tutors who speak in Turkish during the lesson which makes it hard for international students. Also, the tutors are not so involved with their students. Although it has great labs, and a nice campus. An overall average university. Studying in Turkey will be hard for students who want to finance their studies by working...

I had necessary theory lectures along with intense lab works. Also I did twice summer work related to my study. 4th year, I was included into a research project. But, Covid pandemic affect us very deeply because of absence of the some lab works.
