What's it like to study a Masters in Istanbul?

Originally known as Byzantium in ancient times and Constantinople following 330 CE, Istanbul is a city whose strategical location, architectural and cultural virtues made it a desirable conquest for many. The most populous city in Europe, it’s notoriously viewed as a ‘bridge between the East and the West’.

In 2015, Istanbul was named European Capital of Culture. A reflection of the Byzantium and Ottoman periods, parts of the Old City are listed by UNESCO. The city is home to the magnificent Topkapi palace, overlooking the Golden Horn, with its harem, chambers and countless Ottoman era treasures as well as the famous Hagia Sophia, an architectural miracle of its era, built in 537 AD as a Christian Cathedral, later becoming a mosque and eventually a museum. Nearby are also Hagia Irene, the ‘Blue’ Mosque, the Hippodrome and several museums.

Once you find yourself on the streets of Istanbul, you’ll be swept away by the hustle and bustle of shops, eateries, music and entertainment venues. Functioning since the 1461, the Grand Bazaar is the world’s oldest and largest market – and a perfect place to perfect your haggling. You can dine along the shores of the Bosporus (or, indeed, enjoy a ferry trip across it), have traditional coffee served in small ornate cups, visit a historic tavern and join in the busy nightlife.

As a large city, Istanbul offers a variety of student housing, so you should have many options available as long as you take distance and commute times into consideration.
