Istanbul 29 Mayıs University is a newly, but well-established university. I believe I’m in the right place.

İstanbul 29 Mayıs Üniversitesi is a new, yet a powerful university. Since my childhood, it was my biggest dream to study in Istanbul. In here, we, students from all over the world, consider each other as brothers. Ottoman History was taught very different and non-objectively, especially in the Balkans. I believe I will learn the real history in the Department of History in 29 Mayıs and import my knowledge into my country. If you like brotherhood and hospitality, we’d like to see you in 29 Mayıs, too.

I believe my dream came true in 29 Mayıs.

In here, Istanbul, we merely re-live history by wandering around historical and cultural places. We have our guest-house, dining hall and İSAM Library, which is one of a kind in terms of specialization, in our campus. Besides, we are under the roof of such a college, which meets our flight costs during summer. Our professors give us support in any case. Our Kazakh friends, who live and study in Istanbul consider us as ‘the happiest people in the world’.

I had been studying hard since the beginning of the year for the free UK trip offered to preparatory class students in 29 Mayıs. Thanks to the IELTS courses we took at the end of the year, I managed to get the necessary grade for this trip. When we arrived in UK, our courses and houses were already arranged. I had the chance to see London, Liverpool, Leeds and Edinburgh during the trips with my friends. It was a memorable experience for me because I improved my English and I discovered a whole new country.
