Ne mutlu Türkem diyene - happy who can call himself a Turk. This saying of Atatürk's is read and heard again and again, and if you have taken a closer look at the diverse country with its long and exciting history, the varied landscape and the open and welcoming people, you can understand what is meant by it.

Nevertheless, the increasing restriction of civil rights, such as freedom of assembly and freedom of the press, is repeatedly criticised. Political tensions and confrontations are to be expected throughout the country.

Nevertheless, there are also a number of solid reasons to be interested in Turkey, because with more than 2,000 German companies in Turkey, a diverse university landscape, intensive, long-standing and good relations with Germany and the prospect of EU membership, Turkey is a country that German students and interns should definitely take a closer look at.
