Coming to Estonia...
I knew that Estonia has a good reputation about IT and as we all know Skype was born in Estonia. The 2nd reason to choose Estonia is Estonia has a scholarship.Also I asked to my professors and they suggested me to go Estonia, because education is in English.

Before coming here...
I have been in Estonia for 3 days in 2005. But this is not enough to explore Estonia.All in all, I knew that the weather in Estonia is cold,but people are not cold.

Student life in Estonia...
I think,To study in Estonia is cheaper than Turkey. If I compare the private dorms in Turkey to here, It’s expensive in Turkey,but Public dorms are cheaper in Turkey. Student life is almost the same,because it’s student life J

Studying in Estonia...
For the personal outcomes: A good international experience which is for 2 years, lots of international friends and good contacts for the future.

For the academic outcomes: A new perspective for my study field, Internship and work opportunities in some companies, good communication with proffessors for the future.

Best things that have happened to me in Estonia...
I’m still waiting for the best thing to happen to me :), but I strongly believe that if I go back to my home country and if I apply for a job, I’m pretty sure that the Estonian adventure will affect this application and acceptance period in a really good way.

I would tell others...
Here in Estonia, Some lectures are really like a private lecture. For example, I have a lecture and we are just 4 students in this lecture.This is a really good thing about learning something. You are like a friend with teachers and this really gives you a good motivation and provides more contact with them. All the personnels from dean office to proffesors try to be so kind and try to solve your problems as soon as possible.

My degree programme is...
Real time systems,system programming,C/C++,JAVA,Embedded systems,Bussiness model, Software Testing, Hybrid systems, Enterprise Software, Software management and coding.

While being away from my home country, I miss the most...
I just miss the weather in Turkey and  „special friend“ ;) . If you go abroad, you should try not to miss your family and friends so oftenly, because you get a new family and friends here.

Studying is in Estonia is an international experience...
Better work opprtunities when you go back your home country, improving yourself in lost of ways,specially good contact for the future. Student mobility is that not to stay in a restricted place. You should break something in your mind and you should go abroad. It gives you lots of things in good manner.

My future plans...
I have 1.5 more years in Estonia.I will keep studying and I will try to find good works for internship and I will keep improving myself. Then that’s not clear to continue in Phd but If I get some good opprtunity, why not?

The last thing I want to say...
Yurtdışında eğitim almak? İnanın hiç de zor birşey değil.Size inanılmaz deneyimler katıyor.Hem arkadaş ilişkilerinde, hem eğitim anlamında hem de iş fırsatları anlamında. Hem teknoloji açısından gerçekten gelişmiş bir ülke, hem ucuz ama hem de yaşam standartlarının iyi olduğu bir ülke mi arıyorsunuz? Ben bir ipucu vereyim. Estonya. Gerçekten denemiz gereken bir ülke ve seveceğinizden hiç şüphem yok. Yazılım mühendisliği konusuna gelince. Bildiğimiz gibi Skype’ın doğduğu yerdir ve IT konusunda gerçekten gelişmişler. Kendinizi daha fazla geliştirmek istiyorsanız, adresiniz burası. :) Yapmanız gereken tek şey: kendinize güvenmeniz ve bir adım atmanız.Hepsi bu.Çünkü gerisi kendiliğinden geliyor ;)
