We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Turkey is one of the world’s most popular tourist destinations, but it’s also a popular place for international postgraduates to study abroad. Studying a Masters in Turkey will give you the opportunity to experience its tradition of academic excellence in beautiful and diverse surroundings.
Turkey’s location between the European and Asian continents means that it has long been an important hub for the exchange of ideas from the west and the east. International postgraduates in Turkey can take advantage of this proud tradition, exploring the country’s Islamic architecture and classical legacy while using Turkey’s modern research facilities.
As a participant in the Bologna Process, Turkey also offers internationally-recognised and accredited higher education qualifications. Tuition fees at Turkey are very affordable, coming in at around €400 for Masters programmes taught in English.
There are around 72,000 international students currently studying abroad in Turkey.
Most Masters degrees in Turkey take two years to complete, comprising 120 ECTS credits. This includes a thesis, usually written in the second semester of your second year.
Tuition fees in Turkey depend on a few different factors, including the language of instruction and whether the institution in question is public or private. In general, Turkish language Masters are cheaper than programmes in English, and public universities are cheaper than private ones.
An English-taught Masters will cost an average of €268-397 per year at a public university.
Increasing numbers of Masters degrees in Turkey are being taught in English (either partly or wholly), catering for the growing international student population.
Most international students will need a visa to study in Turkey, as the country hasn’t joined the EU (although Turkey is a candidate for EU membership). You should complete a pre-application form for a visa, which will then allow you to make an appointment with your local Turkish consulate to finish the process for a full student visa. Find out more about Turkish student visas.
