"I would recommend Bilkent for several reasons. To begin with, the standard of education is quite high and the university is on a promising road to becoming increasingly more internationally recognized and acclaimed. There are many different departments to choose from and many professors have received their graduate or post-graduate degrees from prestigious universities such as Yale or Cambridge. Lastly, the campus is lovely and huge!"
