Turkey is fast attaining a reputation for being a perfect destination for international students who are looking for quality educational qualifications.

Turkish universities now offer a wide field of choices for international students and are an integral part of the European education space. A number of universities are offering programs in English, which include engineering, medicine, business, humanities, and finance. The quality of the higher education system is also reflected in international ranking lists.

Turkey is a member of many different international platforms and also part of Bologna process since 2001, thus all students can continue their education in other countries with ECTS (European Credit Transfer System) and also get their diplomas recognized by other countries.

Important considerations for choosing Turkey for studies:

       • Cost of Living

       Turkey offers significantly lower annual tuition fees and much lower living expenses compared to other international student destinations. Cost of living in Turkey is 44.41% lower than in the United States (aggregate data for all cities) Turkey’s metropolitan cities are in the very bottom row of the most expensive cities list. Monthly expenses for the living of a foreign student in Turkey ranges from US$ 500 – 700 depending on the student’s lifestyle. Administrative fees are approximately US$ 100-150 per semester.

       • Housing

       Almost all universities provide housing for students. An alternative to university housing, especially in major cities is a room in a shared apartment, that is the most affordable option (Approximately 400 Tl).

       • Transportation

       Public transportation in Turkey is very accessible. You can get around using Istanbul’s Metro, tram, bus, ferry, minibus, and suburban trains. All Transports offer reduced rates to students with valid student ID.

We have partnership with the Private Universities in Turkey, and work towards helping international students to get admission in various academic departments at different Universities.


       3. Residence & Work Permit - Turkey

       Under the Turkish Labor Law, foreigners have the right to work on Turkish territory by obtaining a “work permit” from the Ministry of Labor and Social Security.

Work Permit allows you to work in Turkey with the following benefits:

• Treatment at state expense in all hospitals.

• Pension benefits after the age of 60.

• Eligible for Turkish citizenship after five years.

• Free schooling for investor’s children at Turkish schools.

• Investor benefits offered by the Turkish government.

There are two ways to get the work permit in Turkey:

       a. To be employed by a Turkish company

       Under the Turkish law, only companies can apply to get the work residency for foreign workers in Turkey, not the prospective employee, the following conditions apply:

• The capital of the company wishing to obtain a work permit for a foreigner must be more than 100,000 TL

• At least five Turkish workers employed full-time are needed for each new foreign worker hired in the company.

• For the partners who want to get work permit without hiring Turkish employees, their share of the company’s capital cannot be less than 40,000 TL.

• All taxes of the state paid

• Social insurance paid

Once the owner of the company applies, it normally takes one month to get the Work Permit.

       b. Be a Company Owner and get Investor Residency

       The other option to get work residency is by establishing your own company in Turkey, which is an easier way to get a work residency.

Under the Turkish law, the owners of companies are benefitted as follows:

• Open your company and you will then get the work residency to start your business directly.

• You do not have to initially deposit the entire capital.

• No need to hire 5 Turks for the first year of the company.

• You can apply and get a work permit while you are outside Turkey.

• Your wife, children, parents can be added to your residency permit.

In case you apply for the work permit inside Turkey, then you must have a tourist residency and then transfer it to a work residency.

You may apply for work residency, Work Permit, and Investor Residency in Turkey by visiting one of the Turkish embassies in your country with the required documents. The investor will get a working code which he can use it later in Turkey to get his work residency or use our services to get the process completed. .
