Students in Turkey have the chance to find themselves in a country with the richest and most complicated histories. What a place to learn and explore! You’ll even find yourself near - not one, but two - of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World: The Temple of Artemis, and the Mausoleum in Halicarnassus. If you’re looking for a place to pursue your Master’s or Bachelor’s degree, you’ll find no place more fascinating than Turkey. Take your courses during the week, and then take a weekend trip to the Archaeological Site of Troy or Rock Sites of Cappadocia! Besides having several top-ranked universities, many of which offer English-taught degree programmes, Turkish universities are also known for maintaining cooperation with neighboring institutions throughout Turkey and the rest of the world. If you are interested in going to Turkey for your Master’s or Bachelor’s, you’ll find specialised programmes and universities that offer interesting degree programmes for anything you’re interested in. The academic system in Turkey is largely modelled off of the American system, with two-year Associate’s Degree programmes, followed by 4-year Bachelor’s degree programmes, and 2- to 4-year graduate programmes. So, depending on where you are in your career or what goals you have in mind, universities in Turkey can offer something to fit your life, and a way for you to succeed.

To study in English at one of the universities in Turkey, you may need a proof of English proficiency.
