Social Life

Studying in Turkey offers a great opportunity for a high quality education, but there is so much more on offer. Turkey's cities have many historical and cultural sites to visit, music concerts of popular and traditional music and an abundance of exhibitions and festivals for those who feel like exploring Turkish culture to the fullest.

As an international student you may consider joining one or more of the many social clubs and student associations to enrich your social life. In this beautiful country you can enjoy four distinct seasons, all of which provide their own outdoor sporting possibilities, ranging from swimming (scuba diving and snorkeling), white water rafting, and sailing to skiing. Football, basketball, volleyball and of course cycling and jogging, as well as yoga and Thai-chi, are all part of the vast array of sports and recreational activities you can enjoy.
