An increasing number of international students from numerous nations have opted for Turkey as a location for higher education lately.
The amount of worldwide students studying in Turkish universities has grown dramatically within the last five years. In accordance with information from the nation’s Student Selection and Placement Center (ÖSYM), the amount of worldwide students studying in Turkish universities was 15, 481 inside 2005/06 academic 12 months, in addition to 578 international pupils who had been learning in other academic establishments. When you look at the 2008/09 educational 12 months, there have been 18, 158 intercontinental pupils learning in universities and 562 pupils in other educational institutions in Turkey. Within the 2009/10 scholastic year, these numbers increased to 21, 361 and 587, respectively. The amount of intercontinental students ended up being 26, 228 in Turkey, with 683 studying various other academic organizations besides universities, inside 2010/11 academic year.
One of the reasons that quantity of worldwide students happens to be increasing with every passing year - based on Associate Professor Savaş Genç, a scholastic at division of international relations of İstanbul-based Fatih university who spoke to Sunday’s Zaman - is the snowball result, due to previous international pupils who have been pleased with their particular educational experiences in chicken. Hearing about Turkey and Turkish universities from pupils which formerly studied in chicken results in more students seeking the country because of their degree.
Genç included: “Another major reason for the increase is the present attempts of Turkish personal universities to attract more international students for their organizations. Because condition universities recently enhanced their quotas for intercontinental students, personal universities had some problems finding international students. This, subsequently, has led Turkish exclusive universities to begin to advertise themselves overseas by attending international education fairs or discounting their particular university fees costs. This plays a part in the increase into the few worldwide pupils in Turkey to some extent.”
Genç stated that a lot of regarding the intercontinental pupils at Fatih University come from the Balkans, Africa and the center East.
