Why do you want to join the ALF Network?: 

Anadolu University's Faculty of Communication Sciences has the highest number of international students compare to any other school in its field. It has been like this for a long time. The main idea in this internationalisation is to create broader cultural perspectives to our students and to community while they are reaching their goals within their fields. Also, more exposure of other cultures, dialogues, aspects and issues gave them greater sensitivities for other cultures, nations and groups so far according to our experiences.
