In addition to daily classes, the Intensive Ottoman and Turkish Summer School runs a series of general seminars. These are presentations by leading scholars in the field of Ottoman and Turkish Studies. Students will have a chance to meet prominent scholars and discuss the topics presented. There are normally four presentations during the course. Information about scholars who will be visiting the school will be announced on the Intensive Ottoman Summer School web-site.
Students will also have opportunities to explore Cunda and the surrounding area. Daily yacht tours of the islands are available and there are many landmarks and attractions nearby.
