Undergraduate students who were pursuing towards a degree in mental retardation in the department of special education at Anadolu University were interviewed in the present study. Specifically, the interviews focused on students' practicum experiences. The sample included 26 seniors and data were analyzed descriptively. Students mentioned that they had a positive practicum experience and that they were happy to have the chance to work with a more heterogeneous group of students in two different schools. They also mentioned that they prepared several lesson plans during the practicum process. The participants indicated that they were satisfied with the practicum in both semesters. Half of the participants pointed out that they had sufficient feedback from their university advisors.
