Student Profile(s)

Zeynep Savran

"I had very good professors and I really liked them. My programme was quite demanding, but at the same time this helped me a lot to learn more. That's why I would recommend this programme: I had some catching up to do, but I consider myself improved significantly in an academic way."

"I would also recommend coming to Antwerp, because you will make lots of friends. There are a lot of students coming from all over the world. I went to events organized by the Erasmus Student Network (ESN), who are a big help to international students."
