Turkish universities to be promoted in online fair

A virtual fair to promote Turkish universities will be held on July 27-29, the head of Turkey’s Council of Higher Education (YOK) announced on Wednesday.

The second Study in Turkey YOK Virtual Fair 2021 will open its doors online, Yekta Sarac tweeted. The first edition was also held virtually due to the coronavirus pandemic.

“International students who want to study in Turkey will be able to get information on many subjects including admission conditions, quotas, programs, scholarships, accommodation, etc,” Sarac said.

“Our virtual fairs play an important role in ensuring the participation of more international students in our higher education system in our country, where more than 200,000 international students from 182 countries are educated.”

Last year, in an opinion piece, Sarac wrote: “Today a total of 7.5 million students are studying in 207 universities in Turkey, making it the second-largest country of the European Higher Education Area (EHEA) after Russia.”
