Cansu Ertan (Turkey)

"I have been interested in geography since my childhood. This interest in geography turned into an academic interest when I started my degree at the City and Regional Planning. After getting my bachelor degree, I started studying my master degree in urban planning while working as an urban planner in a private company. During my work experience I realized how important and difficult to integrate academic knowledge with practical knowledge. This awareness encouraged me to apply for the Planet Europe master program, which also provides experience in professional practice. Besides this, the Planet Europe program proposes a different style of study in two different countries with international students who have a variety of academic backgrounds.
I now wish to advance my understanding of the urban sustainability aspect of the EU’s regional policy and its impact on spatial planning. This would add to my academic and practical knowledge, which then may allow me to further my studies through doctoral work."
