Exchange Student Society

Exchange Student Society was established by students from different faculties in 2007 to help incoming and outgoing Exchange students during their Erasmus experience. Exchange Student Society (hereafter, ESS-Hacettepe) cooperates closely with European Union Office (EU Office) and International Student Office.
ESS-Hacettepe strives to foster friendships that will enlarge Erasmus students’ Professional and social network.
ESS-Hacettepe sees itself as an ambassador for our university and city, and through this it hopes to enhance the experience of each Erasmus student when studying and living in Ankara.
