But don’t be scared because here at METU you will be given all the help you need to realise your strengths, develop your skills, gain practical knowledge and such experience that will provide you with competitive advantage when you launch your career.
In a nutshell it means that the focus of education is on practical lessons and projects. During your university studies you complete real professional tasks which later can be integrated into your portfolio which can be presented at job interviews.
You are taught how to give an effective presentation, how to argue, represent yourself or your creation assertively in market situations. These skills will make you have a competitive advantage when you enter the labour market compared to the other beginners.
"METU is much more than just a university where we gain knowledge and later graduate. Here they help us find our way, what we would like to deal with later on, what field we are really good at."

"“ I remember that in one of the lessons I visited during the open day the teacher made a whole classroom compete by using a mobile app. I fell in love with this that here not the old-fashioned methods are used, they are brave enough to be modern. They made me prove my abilities within half an hour. That was when I knew that I would like to study here."
"The best part of studying at METU is the knowledge some of my professors give me. I also enjoy the fact that it is so international and we have a lot of freetime programs together, like trips and picnics."
"My favourite project was when we had to exchange a Kinder Surprise toy in order to survive a day in Budapest. I’m really proud that due to our creativity we could do everything planned for that day without having any money."

I enjoyed our diversity in the class, having so many people from all around the World really enriched the learning experience."
