“I believe that this opportunity, not presented in many universities in Turkey, being accessible in EMU is a significant privilege. It will contribute to our future careers. Not everyone can become experts in all legal fields. This opportunity, presented by EMU, will aid those who will practice law in Turkey or in the international field”.

Why did you take the English TOLES exam? How do you think it will contribute to your field?

“Above all, we receive an international certificate proving our adequacy in Law in the English language. This paves the way for us if we want to work for international firms or with international persons. On the other hand, International Law is a field open for development in Turkey. As I wish to become an expert on it, the TOLES certificate will help me in this field”.
