CoHE Introduces Turkish Universities to the World with “One Click”
June 25, 2019
The Council of Higher Education (CoHE) opened the website www.studyinturkey.gov.tr
with a new interface in order to help international students reach
comprehensive information about the universities and higher education
system in Turkey.
After CoHE’s decision to remove the quota limitation for international
students last month, a new step was taken in order to introduce Turkish
higher education and universities at international arena.
In this scope, the website www.studyinturkey.gov.tr,
which has detailed information on all higher education institutions in
Turkey, was updated in Turkish, English and Arabic.
The site includes information such as the visions, missions and activity
fields of Turkish universities, the programs offered in Turkish and foreign
languages at these universities, and their status in the world rankings.
The opportunities offered to international students are also included on
More than 700 videos were prepared in three languages
With the search engine developed for the website, it became easier for
students to find the most suitable university for themselves as they could
find information about the programs they are interested in by searching
them according to medium of instruction, type of university, the province
the university is located at or field of study.
In order to help international students find information about Turkish
universities with ease, more than 700 videos were prepared in three
languages for the website. Information such as faculties, programs,
academic positions of Turkish universities, scholarships, tuition fees,
accommodation, rules for application, acceptance and enrollment,
transportation, as well as Turkey’s climate and cuisine can be found in
Under the project, it is expected that there will be an increase towards
Turkish higher education institutions in terms of quality and quantity in
"The number of international students has rocketed to 148 thousand"
In his statement, CoHE President Prof. Yekta Saraç noted that the number of
international students in Turkey had rocketed from 48 thousand to 148
thousand in five years and said that this achievement was earned because of
a series of arrangements and measures taken to increase the number of
recognized universities by CoHE. He stated that the fact that CoHE realized
the Study in Turkey Project was quite meaningful and important and pointed
out “reliability” as the most preeminent factor.
“The fact that the brand ‘Study in Turkey’ is presented with the
comprehensive web and assurance of CoHE is extremely important especially
in terms of the reliability and reputation of the platform abroad,” he
“In a sense, CoHE has assumed the duty to introduce Turkish higher
education system and institutions with this project. The second one is
equality. Under the project, all universities in the Turkish higher
education system are introduced to international students and institutions
in a certain format. The third one is variety. Students, academics,
executives, bureaucrats, and every individual who visit www.studyinturkey.gov.tr
will find themselves in a world where information and news about our
country, provinces, higher education and universities are offered with
photos and videos.”
CoHE President Saraç emphasized that the website would sustain its proper
and reliable structure through regular updates. “In fact, the project is a
component of the ‘Target-Oriented Internationalization Project’ of the New
CoHE. We are preparing some new arrangements in this direction. We also
hope to realize these arrangements in a short span of time,” he said.
