FAQ – WINTER

Do you offer scholarships?

Your home university’s international office makes chooses the student who gets the scholarship. We do not accept individual scholarship applications of students. 

Do I need to provide an English-level certificate?

Can I choose different accommodation, or can I stay with a friend in Istanbul? 

Yes, however we do not recommend that for two reasons. First of all we pick the best student residences for our delightfullers, they are certified by IAU.
