3rd year, Political Science
Huron is the perfect university for me. The classes are small, you can interact with professors and making friends was really easy.
Kaan arrived at Huron by way of International Language Academy of Canada (ILAC) in Toronto. After attending Ontario Universities Fair (OUF) in Toronto, the Director of ILAC introduced this prospective student to Huron’s Director of Enrolment and Recruitment. He chose Huron because of the school’s small class sizes and London’s quiet, laid-back atmosphere. Thanks to ILAC’s pathway agreement with Huron, Kaan was able to obtain a direct entry transcript. 

“In residence, I met many people and made lots of friends, including my current roommates,” Kaan says. On top of the residence community, Kaan found a classroom setting that facilitated discussion, an important learning tool for this international student. “In a smaller class you can really listen carefully and ask questions. Professors are always available to help you. You can just drop their offices to talk.” 

For 2017-18, Kaan has worked to establish a Turkish Club at Huron. The Huron University College Students’ Council (HUCSC) provides funding to students interested in creating clubs of their own: there truly is space for everyone at Huron. “There are more and more Turkish students at Huron and Western, so we wanted our club to be a social club that introduces Turkish culture to the broader campus.”

With the goal of pursuing a Law degree in Canada, Kaan has made a home at Huron. “I’m happy to be in Canada and at Huron especially. Studying abroad gives you another perspective to learn about other cultures. Huron is the perfect university for me. The classes are small, you can interact with professors and making friends was really easy.”
