6. What are you doing/plans after graduating from METU? 

For most people, making an academic career is difficult and tiring. Even though I was a little nervous before I started my Master's degree abroad, my confidence in this sense increased thanks to my experience at METU. It has been just a few months since I graduated! So, I plan to prepare for the Doctorate program after a short rest period.
