Selected METU (Turkey) Exchange Students call on Turkish Counsellor for Education 

The selected group of Architecture students who shall be proceeding to Middle East Technical University (Turkey) on semester abroad called on Dr. Ilhami Ayranci, Counsellor for Education, at the Turkish Embassy Islamabad. 

The group was led by Mr. Arif Awan, Senior Program Officer and included Mr. Sibtain Ali Shah, Ms. Shayzal Ahmed and Ms. Wajeeha Fatima. 

A very warm welcome was accorded to the delegation by the Turkish official with Turkish chocolates and sweets.  In turn CUI presented some flowers and memento as a kind goodwill gesture. 

After a detailed introduction of CUI, its origins, its faculties, rankings and key facts, the selected CUI students were introduced to the Turkish official, Dr. Ayranci.  He took much interest in the introductions and pointed out that METU is a university of choice and everyday he approves at least five Pakistani students  proceeding to Turkey for education. 

The students on their part expressed their deep excitement at being selected for this once in a life time opportunity.   

Dr. Ayranci on his part advised them to make the most of their visit and see big cities like Konya and Istanbul and that too through the fast train.  He further urged them to visit the Presidential library which has something like three million books.  He also suggested to visit Bilkent university, which is just three kilometers away from METU in Ankara.  Indulging in Turkish cuisine and learning basic Turkish will be an icing on the cake to their visit. 

The conversations were very cordial and in an ambiance of genuine cordiality.  To correctly underscore this, Dr. Ayranci clearly said that he and his office is available for any further support the students may require even after they have reached Turkey. 

Mr. Awan used the occasion to covey to the Turkish Counsellor CUI’s engagement with Turkey till date and CUI’s desire to host Turkish students at CUI.  At this Dr. Ayraci said he has been to more than 20 countries and finds Pakistan ‘the best’.  So, he sees no reason why Turkish students will not be willing to come to CUI and Pakistan.  All that is needed is efforts! 

Lastly, Mr. Awan, used the occasion to convey the greetings of the Rector CUI to the Turkish Ambassador through the Educational Counsellor.  He also conveyed the desire to host the Turkish Ambassador at a time of his convenience.   

The visited ended with a memorable picture that registers the occasion in golden memory.
