The best part of the school is the campus. It is very spacious and full of trees. At the same time, school transportation is provided by the ring. In terms of education quality among the best schools in Turkey. They are helpful and have all kinds of opportunities for learning. In short, it is a successful school both in terms of campus and education.
METU has many advantages for students in every aspect. This university prepares the students for a successful academic life. It has a different campus and environment. This environment motivates the students and contributes to the success of them. On the other hand, METU provides an active social life. The students can do many things according to their interests. They can participate in a club that is suitable for their interests. There are also many places where the students spend time with their friends. Every student is friendly, so nobody feels lonely in this campus. METU provides all this opportunities.Therefore, being a METU student is a privilege.
I think the most important feature of METU is the campus. Students can easily satisfy their needs thanks to Çarşı which is a place all stores are located in. Secondly, you can participate in lots of different student clubs. Music, sports or arts… you can find a course or activity about your hobby. Thirdly, you can meet different people who came METU from all over the world – sharing a common culture, which students call “METU culture”, just make students feel closer to each other.
Middle East Technical University is ranked as one of the best universities both in Turkey and in the world. With its highly qualified teaching staff and well designed courses, it offers students a great learning experience although it can be challenging sometimes. Aside from the educational aspect, it also provides students with diverse student clubs according to their interests. Being a METU graduate not only means having an accomplished education, it also means being an individual who has gained or improved an interest of him/herself.
Middle East Technical University is one of the first of a few most successful universities in the country. It’s known for its academic success as it is on a list which enables us to see the most prestigious universities all over the world. METU came 80th one of these international lists. In addition to its academic success it’s well known for the facilities it provides its students with. Starting out with the freedom the students and the people living on campus have, the other opportunities METU provides its students with are; a good education, plenty of student clubs, many social events, and concerts that take place throughout each and every academic year. The university has a very big campus where students, academicians, and many animals live together. Once you enter the campus, what draws your attention is how people are respectful towards others and how people care about the other people. In many aspects, Middle East Technical University is the best, I believe.
I believe that METU is the leading university of Turkey where there is a free environment and there is no limit for thinking, inventing, searching or expressing ideas. At METU, there is such a peaceful and respectful atmosphere that I feel at home and everybody is my sister and brother. Also, if you lose something, you don’t worry because you know that somebody will take it somewhere safe where you can get it back. With its infinite number of trees, you feel like you are in a camp in a forest. The campus covers 2/3 of Ankara, the capital city of Turkey. You can chat with friends or lie down on the grass reading your novel at enormous DEVRİM (meaning revolution) stadium. After graduation, I will miss METU, but I know that I can always visit my home.
The atmosphere of university great. Firstly the university is on huge campus and has huge forest and several lakes, so the students live in nature, even some bird species only live in METU’s Campus in the world. The most important advantage after the nature, there is more than 100 student associations which are mostly active and organize at least 1-2 events in a year in METU. You can easily do what you want such as any kind of sport teams, scientific, political societies and international committees. Even we have a few Quidditch teams. (They are flying around campus).
On the other hand, in the campus you can live without going outside. University has sport areas, fitness centers, labs, a library and a shopping mall. It’s important because Ankara isn’t a perfect city for studying.
Academically, METU is the most important university in Turkey. Since it’s a technical university, academic level of Engineering Faculties is really high especially in Electrical, Computer and Mechanical Engineering. The disadvantage of these three departments than others is they are extremely hard. Most of the engineering department has ABET which means substantial equivalence with United States. Mostly, the professors are great and have good communication with students. Also, they carry out important research and they lead in Turkey.
The disadvantage is very few European students study in METU just like everywhere in Turkey.
The curricula are specific and the courses are clear and well-organized. Every course has explanations about the homework, attendance and so on. Therefore, the information is sufficient and they can be expected as in their descriptions. This is the most advantageous side of the university. Professors and assistants are helpful. They have office hours for consultancy. Library and laboratory options are well-equipped.
METU, found in 1956, is one of the top and oldest universities in Turkey. It has a leading effect on Turkish academic education with being first university to have 100% English education programme, which is one of the important reasons for me to be a part of METU, and to have a technopolis in its campus, etc.. Its campus has one of the biggest forests in Ankara and makes it full of green where you can enjoy nature without going anywhere far. METU also has more than 100 students’ societies where students can improve their social, mental and physical skills in an efficent way. Every departmant has professors well-known and highly respected by their academic works. All departments of engineering faculty have an international accreditation by ABET proving their students are ready for international problems.
Middle East Technical University provides all a student can ask for from an university. It has all the indoor and outdoor facilities you can ever imagine (tennis courts, pools, a shopping mall etc.) The lectures are highly efficient and satisfying, the professors are capable of speaking fluent, flawless English and they really know what they’re talking about. Another considerable fact is that they(professors and other people in a nutshell) respect students and appreciate their ideas. Life expenses are lower when compared with most universities among Turkey. As I’m coming from Istanbul, I’m staying in the dormitory and I’m glad to say that I’m content about the dorm. Other than that students are very active in social activities, there are lots of student communities where students sharing the same interests gather and organize events, partake of their ideas, trying to make our world a better place. In my opinion METU deserves a five star.
