Turkish Week 2014 at RUB

Studying abroad in Turkey for one or two semesters - a common desire of many students at RUB. Researchers, on the other hand, are very interested in cooperation partners with whom they can conduct new research. But how can I organise a study abroad stay in Turkey? Which common projects among German and Turkish researchers already do exist at RUB? How can I find suitable partner universities? What are the possibilities for grants? These questions will be answered at the end of October during the Turkish Week.

30 Years of Academic Relations

Academic relations at government level have been existing between Germany and Turkey for 30 years. Especially during the last years, the country that is part of two different continents is gaining popularity among students and researchers from German universities. In order to acknowledge this development and to celebrate this anniversary adequately, the German Rectors' Conference (HRK) grants 15 German universities, including RUB, the opportunity to hold Turkish Weeks in 2014. The Turkish Week will be sponsored by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF).

Information Stands in the Mensa Foyer

On 28 and 29 October 2014, students, researchers and employees get to know interesting facts about the country, about studying in Turkey and about the Turkish system of higher education. On each day, the International Office, representatives of Turkish partner universities, RUB students who have studied abroad in Turkey and Turkish students who are currently studying at RUB inform students interested in gaining study abroad experience in Turkey. The "Landesspracheninstitut" (LSI) und the University Language Centre (ZFA) present their language courses, the ZFA offers 45 minute long intensive Turkish language classes on both days.

Furthermore, visitors may attend presentations, a panel discussion, a workshop and a poster exhibition addressing Turkey related topics. Students can register for an intercultural training. The AKAFĂ– serves Turkish food and snacks in the mensa.
