Turkey is one of the world’s fastest-growing economies, reflecting its ambitions to compete in the global market for international students.
Degrees granted by Turkish universities are recognised across the world and a growing number of programs are taught in English, especially in areas such as engineering, international relations and business.
Turkey is part of the Bologna Process since 2001 and also a member of many different international platforms. What this means is that first, all students can continue their education in other countries with ECTS (European Credit Transfer System) and second they can get their diplomas recognized by other countries.
Low Tuition & Cost of Study
Tuition fees and the cost of living are lower in Turkey than in most European or American countries yet the quality of education is still high.
According to Mercer’s 2013 global cost of living rankings, Turkey’s metropolitan cities are in the very bottom row of the most expensive cities list.
Turkey is an open-air museum, full of ancient sites and ruins that bear testament to the many civilisations that emerged or flourished here, including Greek, Roman, Byzantine and Ottoman.
Here you will find the world’s best-preserved Neolithic settlement at Çatalhöyük, the famous city of Troy and the statues of Greek and Persian gods on Mount Nemrut, described by Unesco as the 8th wonder of the world.
