 TURKEY

A MAELSTROM OF TRADITION AND MODERNITY

This immense territory is both an intersection of two continents, Asia and Europe, and a crossroads between Europe, Central Asia and the Middle East. Very few countries have such a valuable and strategic location.
Turkey has an enormous variety of natural landscapes and sites. It will overwhelm you with its 8,000 km of coasts, mountains, forests, desert plateaus, lakes, steppes, valleys and rivers. If you’re looking for outdoor activities, Turkey offers plenty of opportunities for skiing, climbing, trekking, swimming, water-skiing, sailing and diving.
For those who are attracted by the Orient and its mysteries, Turkey is the country to visit. It’s full of historic sites inherited from the ancient civilizations of the Greeks, the Romans, the Byzantines, the Hittites and the Ottomans.

Istanbul and Ankara are the main academic cities. They welcome most of the Turkish and foreign students in very different ways. Istanbul, a bridge between the East and the West, is a cosmopolitan city with a colorful blend of cultures and histories. Ankara, the administrative center of the country, has a more austere personality.
The higher education system is made up of 71 universities (53 state, 18 private) under the responsibility of the Council for Higher Education (YÖK).
