Sule Chousein (MA 2006-2007)
PhD Candidate, Atatürk Institute on Modern Turkish Studies, Bogazici University
"I regard my one year MA experience at the CEU as the best experience of my life. CEU is indeed a unique home which blends academic excellence with her truly dedicated, friendly and professional academic staff with equally exceptional students from all over the world. During a one-year period at the CEU, I have acquired the academic skills which I couldn not have acquired in any other instiution in such a short period of time. This has helped me a great deal as I got acceptance by all the three prominent PhD programs I applied in Istanbul. Now I am continuing my academic studies at Bogazici University, the Atatürk Institute on Modern Turkish Studies. This helps me further understand what a valuable experience the CEU has been. Furthermore, the great friends I made at the CEU, which I still correspond, have taught me even more about the world we live in. Therefore, I am grateful to the CEU for giving us the opportunity to know each other, for offering us the unique academic excellence and also for her invaluable contributions to the world peace."
