'Near East University, I discovered in September 2014, is not an “establishment” university tied to founding principles that are one, two or more centuries out of date. This is an exciting, perspective changing institution, soundly founded on 21st Century values and having an open focus, not on the achievement of some statistically derived parameters of performance, but on a belief in excellence as an open-ended concept. My previous visit had a profound impact on the ways in which I perceived the future of higher education as expressed through the guiding philosophy of Dr Gunsel, the Founding Rector of Near East University. I am confident that your visit here and participation in this conference will have a similar effect on each of you.'

I would like to thank you for the excellent event arrangement, rich interesting programme, and attention shown to each participant. I found my visit to the Near East University very useful since our Manual Therapy Association made a contract for long-term cooperation with the University. In the framework of the conference there were many participants, who were interested in the work of our Association and with whom, I am sure we will cooperate in the future. I’m really grateful for this splendid opportunity since I got acquainted not only with the Near East University but as well with the North Cyprus and its fascinating sights.

My trip was excellent. As a part of my work I have to travel a lot and I would like to highlight this time the reception was especially warm, and all participants were surrounded by attention of the organizers. It was very interesting to listen to my colleagues’ speeches; with many of those participants I’ve established long-term business contacts.
I was impressed by the Near East University and its Hospital in particular. I consider the signed contract to be the beginning of our mutual cooperation. Best wishes to all event organizers.

I really enjoyed the conference. Nearly all presentations of the 'Medicine' section were very interesting and informative, and the tour of the Near East University clinic was 

interesting and fruitful for me as a professional.
Among the participants of the conference there were many people and I have managed to establish business contacts, which hopefully will grow into a fruitful cooperation.
I want to thank the organizers and the hosts of this wonderful event, that brought together the leaders of science, education and medicine from different countries.
