Being an International Student at BAU: A Seminar on Cultural Adaptation


“Living in a culture that is different from your own can be both exciting… and challenging”.

The annual Cultural Adaptation Seminar for international students, which was organized by the Psychological Counseling Center and the Dean of Students Office, was a success!

The seminar was attended by 16 students, from different walks of life and at different study levels. The students had a chance to receive helpful information about cultural adaptation – symptoms, phases and strategies – were presented by Ms. Aysel Koçanoğlu, the seminar’s psychologist.

Students were given a chance to interact with their peers and draw upon similar and shared experiences. The discussion brushed upon the academic, cultural, social and personal challenges of being an international student at BAU and in Turkey, the main dimensions in international education which require continual improvement and attention.

Two of BAU’s successful students, Nesrin AlDroubi (a 5th year Med student) and Soraya Raeispour (a 2nd year Masters in Guidance and Psychological Counseling student) discussed their own experiences, stories, and coping strategies. Their insights were helpful in providing the other students hope and resilience in difficult times.

Soraya, who is also the International Student Advisor at the Dean of Students Office, conducted a short pre- and post-seminar survey to understand the needs and expectations of the international attendees. The findings generated positive feedback and further interest in potential and future seminars on other commonly experienced international student issues (homesickness, socializing with natives and international students, and psychological guidance and support).


If you have any additional questions, think you need further support and guidance in adapting to life at BAU and in Turkey, or if you would like participate in future seminars, please visit your international student advisor at the Dean of Students office (M-Building). Alternatively, you can contact her via email
