Located at the crossroads of East and West, Turkey has a strategic position and plays a major role as a bridge between Asia and Europe. In addition, the climate of Europe in the west, the Balkans and the Caucasus in the north, the Middle East in the east and Africa in the south has made the nature of Turkey diverse and fascinating. At the same time, this bridge and diversity has affected cultural relations beyond the geographical, economic and political ties of the countries in this geography. For this reason, you can witness the different cultures that have become a mosaic in Turkey. Undoubtedly, the cultures that the Turkish lands have witnessed for thousands of years have also contributed to this diversity. This diversity and unity is reflected in education.
There are more than 200 universities in Turkey, which has a population of 82 million. The number of students is about 8 million. Turkey is the first country in Europe with a large number of students in the field of higher education. There are more than 58,000 different programs in more than 200 universities. The student will definitely find a suitable university and program in these various programs.
Each of the Turkish universities has a modern and convenient campus. The country's living standard and costs are very favourable for a country with modern requirements. The cost of living varies from city to city, but in general it varies from $ 250 to $ 500, depending on the city where the student will study.
Tuition fees at state universities range from $ 200 to $ 2,000 (medical specialties from $ 700 to $ 5,000). In most state universities, tuition fees range from $ 200 to $ 1,000.
Along with state universities, there are private universities in Turkey, such as Koç and Sabancı, which are ranked 400-500 in the ranking of world universities with modern and new technologies.

In order to study at the bachelor's level of state universities, you need SAT and YÖS exam results. If foreign students want to study for a master's or doctoral degree in Turkish, they must get TYS and ALES exam results, if they want to get these degrees in English, they must obtain TOEFL and GRE exam results.
As for private universities, most private universities accept foreign students with a high school certificate. However, top universities such as Koç and Sabancı require SAT scores, while several universities, such as Başkent University, accept foreign students with their own YÖS or SAT scores. A high SAT score can increase your chances of getting a scholarship or tuition discount from a private university.
