    I haven't found this one treated in the dictionaries...

    What is the meaning of deyince akla? I was able to find several examples of its use. Here is one:

    Üniversite deyince akla önce ders, vize,final gelir. Ancak üniversite yaşamındadaha eğlenceli şeyler de vardır. Evet,konumuz öğrenci evleri.

    As always help is appreciated!

    Hi,

    Exams etc come to mind when talking about universities.

    I don't know equivalents of final and vize therefore wrote exams etc.

    When it comes to universities, lectures, mid-terms and final examinations come to mind first.

    akla = akıl,a
