The educational system in the Netherlands is more dynamic and provides more opportunity for students.

BSc Ela Sonmezler, student

Having a different experience which I could not have the chance of in Turkey made me decide to do my Master at TU/e after completing my Bachelor at the Istanbul Technical University. In the Netherlands I can live and work with people from different cultures and learn from them.

At TU/e I have the opportunity putting more and more knowledge to real use with help from professionals. I feel at home in Eindhoven. The city itself is a really quiet place and it’s easy to get used to life here. The residents here are really friendly. Furthermore, the introduction week and the Education and Student Service Center made it easy to cope with my needs from the beginning. Also, the staff of the Chemical Engineering and Chemistry department helped me a lot to become familiar with the university within a couple of weeks. Their advice will help me succeed in my studies. Compared to Turkey the educational system in the Netherlands is more dynamic and provides more opportunity for students. I like the freedom to choose different courses from different fields and the opportunity to specialize. I’m glad I took the chance to study at TU/e.
