NIT Turkish Studies Semester Starts!
We are happy to welcome our students to the NIT Turkish Studies Semester who have started their classes this week. This year, our students are from the Middle Eastern Studies and Turkish Studies track at Leiden University. Due to pandemic regulations, we have to hold the programme remotely. However, we are determined to provide them with an in-depth understanding of contemporary Turkey and its history, in addition to giving them a sense of the everyday life in Istanbul. The semester will continue with online classes and other activities focusing on a variety of topics regarding the culture, politics, and history of Turkey which will engage the students with both academic and practical perspectives.
