I learned a lot of things about interior design. I had opportunity to work with many different disciplines such as furniture design and graphic design... Beside these I learned to use many software programs during the education process.

My Experience at MEF
Anonymous rated 4 out of 5 stars

My university has highly successful academic staff in their fields and they give a lot of importance to academic research. We use flip-learning which is beneficial to keep up with the digital world and the lectures are highly interactive. However, the university lack certain social facilities.
