Turkey Targets 350,000 International Students

International Policy

Turkey: Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan has announced that the country is aiming to attract 350,000 international students – nearly doubling the Council of Higher Education 2021-2022 target of 200,000. However, there is apparently no clear timeframe for reaching the target.

The president also hinted that “soon all foreign students and graduates will receive working permission in Turkey”.  Statistics from the Council of Higher Education (YÖK) show that in 2017-18 there are 125,138 international students in the country.

“In the past, hundred thousands of guests have been educated in our country, and they have returned to their home countries,” Erdogan said.

The acting president of the Turkish Prime Ministry’s Presidency for Turks Abroad and Related Communities (YTB), Ahmet Algan, told media agencies that scholarships would be an important role in attracting more students.


Turkey Scholarships currently list six undergraduate scholarships on its website, two graduate scholarships and three short-term scholarships. Every year 5,000 scholarships are provided to students from over 160 countries. Reports show that the number of applications for these has risen from 42,000 in 2012 to 120,000 students in 2016.
