STUDENT FEEDBACKS

So I came to TOGU to do my internship. I planned to stay there for 3 months but because of the Covid-19 I stayed there 5 months. I do appreciate that the staff took care of me during this crisis. As a person who doesn't speak Turkish, I was struggling with majority of things, like going to store, ordering food and etc. Thanks to my lovely colleagues they were helping me out with every aspect I was struggling. It was my pleasure to be a part of Public relations department. I am really happy that I was surrounded by these professionals because it helped me to grow as a specialist and as a person. And I am even more happier that those professionals became my pals. TOGU, you are maşallah.

Egle Serutyte

Coming here to Tokat turns out to be one of my best decisions! I came here for an internship only for 3 months and guess what?! I’m still here! And maybe I will live the rest of my life here! The colleagues in the international relations office helped me a lot, they were literally taking care of everything! Among the internships which I did during my life, this internship would be the best (where I had fun and improved my teaching and professional skills) You must come to Tokat!

Nour Hussein

When I first came Tokat, I was a little bit shy, because it was a different culture, I didn’t know the language and the people. Later, I was charmed by the quality of education in Gaziosmanpaşa University, guidance of the professors and hospitality and friendliness of the local people. Besides my academic studies, studying in Tokat provided me the opportunity to broaden my horizon by experiencing Anatolian culture and lifestyle.

Maria Agnes

If you don’t like crowded metropols and want to study in a peaceful environment, Tokat is the right place for you. Professors are eager to work with international students. Their feedbacks are very constructive. There was a well-balanced mix of students from different backgrounds, so we could all learn from each other’s experiences.

Fahad Ganem

The staff in Gaziosmanpaşa University is very supportive, especially my academic personal tutor who supported me through personal and academic challenges. They supported me during difficult times by allowing coursework extensions and answering any additional questions I may have.

Whang Yu

I studied MSc in Health Management, which I felt was the perfect add-on to my undergraduate degree. I chose to study at TOGÜ to complete my master’s degree, because they had this specific course that I wanted to do. I also wish to do my PhD here, because I was already living in Tokat and find it a brilliant place to be.

Adamu Nantembelele

I found a nice language exchange buddy – my Turkish friend and I agreed to have weekly hourly sessions, during which she was teaching me Turkish and I was teaching her Russian.
