Terakki Graduate Becomes First Turk to Receive the DAAD Outstanding Achievement Award

Beybin Elvin Tunç, who graduated from high school at our Levent Campus in 2011, became the first Turk to receive the outstanding achievement award given to international students every year by the German Academic Exchange Service (Deutscher Akademischen Austauschdienst-DAAD).

Beybin Elvin Tunç, 3rd year graduate student of European Migration and Intercultural Relations at Oldenburg University in Germany,  one of the most popular countries in the world for higher education,  said he sees this award not as a personal success, but as an achievement based on intercultural cooperation. Tunç, who completed his undergraduate degree in the Department of Sociology at METU and took part in many studies within the scope of the United Nations and UNESCO during his master’s degree, received this award for his academic success and social work.

Michal Musialowski, who is Oldenburg University’s Erasmus program coordinator, said   he sees Tunç as a unique and distinguished personality who inspires others while putting her theoretical knowledge into practice.

On the other hand, Professor of the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) Dr. Wiebke Bachmann  claimed that strengthening the international quality of research and higher education is an important goal for Germany, and added:  “We believe that innovation and development will be further strengthened by the gathering of such highly qualified people.”.
