  1. I want to know whether there is some USB internet kind of thing available in Turkey.....the university won't allow us to use their internet for non academic purposes...and i want to watch all the tv shows that i'm missing...so is there some usb thing that i can just plug in whenever i need to watch tv shows,download music etc?? And if so..how much does it cost..and where can i get it? Thanks!
  2. I've applied to Bilkent Uni and I'd like to do tourism and hotel management (B. S Degree) but everyone is dissuading me from doing this course. I've looked at the course and I think it's very interesting but my parents and others that I've spoken to are not keen on me doing this degree. The other option is International Relations but I'm not too keen on that. I'm very confused.. I want to do Tourism & Hotel Management but will i have problems in terms of job opportunities? I've heard this profession doesn't pay very well unless you've got lots of experience... The problem is that when you say tourism & hotel management,the thing that immediately comes to most peoples mind is working in a hotel! But one doesn't have to work in a hotel right? My father was in Turkey recently and everyone he spoke to there said i should seriously consider doing Business Management. But i know for sure that i do not want to do this. I had business in A-Levels and i hated it. So can anyone help me decide? Every time I decide I'm going to to Tourism management, someone says something and I'm left thinking again =(
  3. Are there any other universities other than Bilkent which offer Tourism & Hotel Management? I really want to do this course preferably from Bilkent but i want to keep another university as a second option in case Bilkent doesn't accept me...so please tell me of another university which offers this course in english..and it should be a bachelors degree.
  4. Well Bilkent and Sabanci have said it is okay if I send them the A-Level result in August..though they say I shouldn't send it later than the 12th! Which is quite close because the result itself will probably come out by the 10th.... I might be going to Turkey in June.. If I do I'll go to Bilkent and Sabanci to explain the situation. But you do understand my situation better than anyone else,especially since you were in the same position.. So I think it's a good idea if you can write them a letter in Turkish explaining the situation =) I shall be very grateful to you... You don't have to send it to them..if you could just write it and then send it to me..i will then send it along with my other documents.. Thank you so much! =D
  5. You mean O'Levels? Yeah i have that..
  6. Hi!...can someone please please help me! The problem is that I'm applying to Bilkent,Koc & Sabanci very soon and I'm still not sure what to do about the high school diploma! I'm doing GCE A-Levels and so there's no such thing as a high school diploma for me..just the A-Level Certificate. I've tried telling that to the Unis but they don't seem to understand. Koc said i should find out if the A-Level certificate is the equivalent to a diploma from the Ministry Of Education of Turkey.. Sabanci say I need to prove that I have graduated... I know I've asked this question here before ..i think it was Yildrim who said i could get the diploma once I'm in Turkey but the Unis say they want the complete application... So what should I do?

    Yos Exam

    Hello again!... I have a question...if a university doesn't require a personal statement or recommendation letters,should I still send them? Because Bilkent doesn't require them for application,its not mentioned on their applications page..but will I have better chances of being accepted if i do send these documents? Or will the university think I'm being over efficient? http://www.turkeycentral.com/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/dry.gif

    Well I have e-mailed Sabanci telling them about this..but they haven't replied.. I've come to the conclusion that apart from Bilkent none of the other universities reply!! So i suppose I'll have to call them... Although Sabanci also have a late application deadline of 7th August...but it's still before the A-Level results come out... By the way how was your AS result if you don't mind me asking? I have an 'A' in Law but a 'C' in business!...i will be applying with these grades.. ;)And did you have any extra curricular activities? Are the Turkish universities quite particular about them during application?

    Okay...although i was thinking of applying in June but do you think it's better to apply in May? Also I mailed Bilkent about the A Level result coming out later and they have replied saying i cannot apply if i cannot prove my grades!! What does this mean!!? I did mention i will send my O'Level result and my A Level expected grades....but i'm scared now..what if they don't accept me because of this..but this is how it is for the rest of the world! All universities know about A Level results coming later which is why expected grades play an important role in application... How did Sabanci University accept you if your A Level results came out later too??

    Wow! The application procedure seems a lot of work!! Don't the Universities already know that A Level results come out late? For this reason I will be sending my expected A Level grades..but do you think I should mail them and tell them beforehand? And what do you think is the equivalent of a high school diploma? Won't my A Level Result Certificate be the equivalent? Also can you please tell me the Application Deadlines for Koc University? It's not on their website and they never reply to my e-mails! I need to know the Application dates for the Fall 2010 Semester for International Undergraduate (full time) students. Thanks a lot!!!

    Yos Exam

    Hello again!....i was wondering whether any of you have an idea about recommendation letters from teachers? For instance should it be written by hand? Or typed and then signed by the referee? Also what is a high school diploma and how would i get that from my school? Since i'm doing A-Levels i'm assuming the A Level Result Certificate would be the equivalent to a high school diploma? Thanks =)

    I'm sorry i'm asking so many questions...it's just that i don't know anyone who's studying in Turkey..

    I think i should mail Bilkent and ask them about international relations,whether i can take it or not with the A Level subjects i have. I did mail Sabanci University about this a few months back and they said it was necessary to have an A Levels subject related to the course you choose in university...and i don't know about Koc University because they never reply! Yes all the universities require TOEFL or IELTS..i did take TOEFL in November and got the required score..\Another thing that confuses me is that when i send my applications in June,i won't have my A Level result since that comes in August. So will they accept me based on my expected A Level grades? And do you think extra curricular activites matter a lot for the Turkish universities?

    Well i have heard that Sabanci is also a very good university but unfortunately i didn't have time to visit it. The conclusion that i have come to is that if you ask the Turks about which university is the best most of them are going to say M. E. T. U or Boğazi
