Student Reviews

Good and Bad Sides of My University
Anonymous rated 5 out of 5 stars

Bahcesehir University has laboratories that equipped well, however it is not enough for a computer engineering student to practice. But with its qualified professors, students are learning the lessons good enough. Also, university provides abroad education but for a short limited time with a good amount of money.

Life at BAU as a South African
Anonymous rated 4 out of 5 stars

Despite how some semesters were hard, I was thankful to have gone through the experience with my friends. I’ve made friends that I will keep beyond my undergrad

Good Luck

There was no campus at my university, which means that there are many students in a smaller area. We have really good laboratory lessons to teach and our teachers are interested in us.
