International Exchange Testimonials


Eltion Meka

Visiting scholar at Middle East Technical University (METU)

“As an Albanian I get the sense that we perceive Turkey to be very much similar to our own country. While there are certainly similarities, I would have to say that my one week visit at METU through the Erasmus+ Credit Mobility Programme was an eye opening experience. I had the opportunity to network with internationally established academics as well as explore the cultural and natural beauties of Ankara and surrounding region. I strongly urge students and our academic staff to take full advantage of this opportunity and strengthen the internationalization of our institution.”


Dr. Denard Veshi

Visiting scholar at Middle East Technical University (METU)

8-19 May 2017

The experience as visiting scholar at Middle East Technical University (METU) was extremely interesting. It helped me to better shape my expertise according to the interest of students coming from Middle East. This experience also gave me several other advantages as well, such as speaking with local scholars and researchers, advancing my ability to quickly adapt in a new academic environment, and enhancing the possibility to apply for joint academic collaborations. The administrative staff was amazingly helpful by helping me with the accommodation and other arrangements.


Juljana Vela

Exchange Student at Science-Po, Rennes

As usual all the unknown things make you feel uncertain and scared. Going in Rennes, at Science-Po was challenging for me, because I didn’t knew what I was going to face in there.

However after my arrival there my uncertainty about the decision of going there was gone.

Rennes is a very beautiful and quiet city and it welcomes students who go to study.

The people of Rennes are very nice and the most polite people ever met in my life.

Science-Po is so well organized, from the first day that you will arrive until the last day you will stay in there. The staff of the international office was always willing to help and guide you, in order for the international student to integrate in Sciences-Po.

Zephyr the association (the girls) of the foreign students, help the international students with all the procedures that the student needed to fulfill after they arrival in there, they organized events in order for the students to get to know each other.

Lecture with French and International Professors were really challenging, not just for the students, but also for them. They always wanted to know the opinion of the students based on their culture. The lectures were really interesting, because you had to work in group with people that have totally different view on the on many issues, different cultures, different traditions etc.

In this exchange I knew students from around the world, that you will never have the chance to meet in the same place and in the same time. You will know different cultures, mentalities and you will see that in the end everybody is the same.

Thank you to UNYT for giving me the opportunity to go in France, to this amazing journey.

Even if to some extend your plans didn’t had the outcome that you wanted, but you gained other things that you never thought you will.

In the end you will have this unique experience that you will remember for the rest of your life.
