Hello dear readers! In my this post, i will be talking about the Azeri students studying in Turkey, especially at Bilkent University. So, if you are ready, lets enjoy the post!
Firstly, i want to talk about the statistics of Azeri students being educated in Turkey.

So, as you can see there are 170 Azeri students studying at Bilkent University, which is 2.4% of overall amount and 61% of them are males and the rest 67 students are females. The reason that Bilkent University has less Azeris than other universities is because Bilkent is private univeristy and it is located in Ankara, which is considered boring by most of students.
Secondly, i will be talking about the requirements that Bilkent University have for Azerbaijani student to enroll in the classes. As other international students, Azerbaijani student who want to enroll in Bilkent, should take Scholastic Aptitude Test and ought to get at least 1000 point out of 1600. Rather than than you should take either IELTS/TOEFL exams or PAE exam to get your proficiency on English. To be able to start the department, you should collect 6.5 IELTS or 83 point PAE. Until you get one of these proficiencies, students are taught English classes at English preparatory program on East campus.
Ultimately, i want to talk about why Azeri students studying at Bilkent chose Bilkent. The first remarkable reason is that 80% of Azeri students have scholarship given by OSYM. Another reason is that Bilkent is considered one of top universities in Turkey according to QS rankings. Furthermore, being located in Ankara has many advantages for international students such as cheaper prices and more student-lover city.

Other than all the opportunities that Bilkent satisfy for International students is that there international student clubs, which Azeris at Bilkent join frequently to have friends all over the world. There are also opportunities for Azeris to participate in Bilkent Symphony Orchestra. Ultimately, as other students, Azeris can join Exchange programs as well.

A regular weekend half spent by travelling to Istanbul and other half spent in Ankara with Azeris. So, lets keep it short and start enjoying!
1) Derby Match
In Last weekend on Saturday, there was a derby match between Besiktas and Galatasaray. As a fan of Besiktas since my childhood, i could not miss the chance to watch the game. Me and my Azeri friends went to Istanbul by bus to watch the game which resulted in the win of Besiktas. It gave me amazing feelings to watch the team that i have ever dreamed of. During that game, i understood how ambition i was back in Azerbaijan and i felt satisfaction of this ambition while watching the derby. Here, there are some pictures that will always be one of my best memories.

We spent 4 nights to make this banner while preparing for the Galatasaray match
We were in Sairler Parki before the match. Those scarfs are the first products of the Association of Azerbaycan Kartallari. We finally got out scarf product after 3 weeks of design and work.
2)Amateur match of Besiktas in Istanbul
After the victory in Istanbul, we came back to Ankara by bus but this time without my Azeri friends. When i got off in Ankara in the morning on Sunday, me as board member of Bilkent Unibjk and my other Turkish and Azeri friends went to the disabled basketball match of Besiktas with Hacettepe in Ankara. We cheered them during the game and gave them all the motivation we had even though we were too tired. These pictures can also be an induce for Azeri Besiktas fans who will be coming to Ankara because we still can feel Besiktas love in Ankara even though Besiktas mostly plays in Istanbul. These pictures should show Azeri Eagles that Besiktas is not just about football, there are disabled sportsmen who deserve more attention than anyone else. Regardless of you are Azeri or Turkish, we ought to show our support to these kind of sports and its players.
We also had a banner for this game in the name of "Engelsiz Sevdalar" which was made last year
We spent nights to make this banner so that we could show our support to the disabled sportsmen
