Our Rector Attends the Event of YTB’s Istanbul Branch


Istanbul Branch of the Presidency for Turks Abroad and Related Communities (YTB) organized a breakfast event on 19 February 2020 for international students studying in Istanbul and our Rector Prof. Dr. Gülfettin Çelik was invited as the guest of honor at the event. The program was hosted by YTB Istanbul Brach coordinator Emre Oruç and specialist Caner Süleyman of YTB International Students Department and was also attended by IMU TOMER Director Assoc. Prof. Dr. Ahmet Koçak.

At the event, our students were represented by several master’s and PhD students taking Turkish courses in IMU TOMER. During the breakfast event, the students introduced themselves and talked about their opinions and demands about universities. The discussions particularly focused on the problems concerning learning Turkish, the process of adaptation to the city and university, and bursars’ problems in the master’s and PhD process. In this context, YTB bursars who are currently writing their dissertations in our University were informed that a researcher will be charged to help them with their thesis writing process.
