Student of Master's Program at Innopolis University (Fall 2020/2021)
Lectures were engaging and containing complicated topics in an easy-to-understand form.
Sapienza University is one of the largest European universities by enrollments and one of the oldest in history, founded in 1303. The University is one of the most prestigious Italian universities and in the world, commonly ranking first in national rankings and Southern Europe. This was the reason for which I chose Sapienza University. The administrative process there was organized smoothly and easy to understand. Students of Sapienza have the platform for uploading all necessary documents for an exchange program. The International offices of both universities are ready to answer all student's questions. The organization of online lectures was amazing; all materials were available online. Lectures were engaging and containing complicated topics in an easy-to-understand form.
Because of the pandemic situation, I could not visit the county. Even though the communication with people was online, it remained in my memory as one of the most interesting moments. We had the team projects. We were making zoom calls with my teammates, first to get to know each other and the background of each person. Then we were working on developing MLP and RBF neural network with optimization of its training error function, for which we got the full point.
I would recommend students who wish to go on an exchange program to take part in all possible activities which partner university can provide, visit the county of exchange, and make friends.
<p> Though my exchange at <b>Luxembourg University</b> was affected by COVID-19, I would still say it was amazing<br> </p>
I had a chance to dive into the history of the foreign country. During the exchange at <b>METU (Turkey)</b>, I lived with friends and one of them was Turkish. This guy showed the key places in Ankara and gave a short review of modern Turkish history. The brightest day of my exchange program was the day of Remembering Ataturk on 10th November at 9:05 AM when I met many people outside in a crowded street to see how the nation respects its father.
<p> It was a warm spring night with cherry blossom trees around, I and 20 more exchange students at <b>KAIST (South Korea)</b> from all around the world met on the roof of the library to drink Korean soju and sing American songs. </p>
<p> I had a chance to study with Korean students at <b>Seoul National University (South Korea)</b> for a short term to see how hard they study in their university. </p>
I chose <b>METU</b> because of its reputation and high ranking in the area.
I chose <b>Seoul National University (South Korea)</b> mostly due to its high rankings and high quality of education that is recognized in Korea and worldwide.
