Education System Overview
In the 2015-2016 academic year, 705 U.S. students studied abroad for academic credit in Turkey.
More and more Turkish universities are looking for partnerships with the U.S. universities and establishing ties for a faculty or student exchange programs to create an international setting at the universities. We are seeing many dual/double degree and certificate programs at Turkish universities as a result of these partnerships.
