Within the scope of the collaboration agreement settled between Eastern Mediterranean University and Bologna University’s Faculty of Law in 2015, students of EMU Faculty of Law have registered to Bologna University Faculty of Law for the first time.
The collaboration agreement enables both institutions to exchange students, researchers and faculty members. In this context, students have the opportunity to study in Bologna University and faculty members find the chance to do research and teach in Bologna University.
Among the applicants, EMU Faculty of Law students Egemen İnaltay, Fulya Bozkurt and İlayda Öner are admitted to the Faculty of Law in Bologna University. Students starting to study in Bologna University as of 2017 - 2018 Academic Year Fall Semester state that this experience is an important milestone their lives. Students recommended the program to fellow students by saying that the Law education in English language within Bologna University is significantly beneficial in terms of improving themselves.
Apart from studying in the first and the oldest university of the world, EMU Faculty of Law students stated that living in Europe and experiencing life as young individuals is invaluable. The opportunity only offered for EMU Faculty of Law students has become a very popular exchange program within EMU Law students. Researches regarding student exchange programs indicate that such programs play a vital role on extending visions of students. Due to the national nature of the legal education, it is very hard to come across such programs. EMU Faculty of Law achieved the difficulty and put the student exchange program into action.
EMU Faculty of Law students are receiving education in English on important courses such as European Union Law, Principles of European Legal Orders, International Law, European Union Internal Market Law, Information Technologies and Law, Chinese Business Law, Copyright Law and European Competition Law. In this context, EMU Faculty of Law students are successfully representing EMU in Bologna University.
