Turkey Scholarships
The Turkey Scholarship  is one of the most famous scholarship programs around the world, as Turkey  has opened its doors to education for many international students based on the decisions of the Presidency of the Republic of Turkey, and this scholarship is announced on the Turkey Scholarship website annually.   The most important feature of the turkey government scholarships for international students is the diversity of specialisations and study programs, which led to an increase in the number of study seats granted to foreign students, reaching more than 2000 university seats in recent years.Main purpose of Turkiye Burslari is to provide equal opportunities for foreign students from all over the world to receive scholarships according to international standards, and provide them with a quality education in Turkey. Due to the availability of many academic specialisations in English, the demand for registration in this scholarship is very large, and the number of online applications on the Turkey Burslari website has reached more than 250,000 applications for different academic degrees and nationalities, and the intense competition and the high number of applications is one of the biggest disadvantages of the Turkey Scholarship .The "Turkey Government Scholarship" aims to support international students in undergraduate, postgraduate, and doctorate studies and also aims to support graduate students.Many international students around the world interested in studying in Turkey register for the Turkey Scholarship  and fill out the scholarship applications online on the official website of the Turkey Scholarships.  The Turkey Scholarships  link is activated in the first month of each year.Date of Application for the Turkey Scholarships  2024Registration for the Turkish government scholarship is carried out from the date of 10.01.2024 until the date of 20.02.2024Students wishing to register are advised to apply early, as the great pressure on the site causes some technical errors in the last days of registration.One of the most important advantages of the Turkey Scholarships  is that it covers all tuition fees, a monthly salary for admitted students, student housing and flight ticket. The scholarship presidency is concerned with attracting students who are academically or socially distinguished or who have volunteer activities or have practical experience. However, although the acceptance rate for the Turkiye Scholarships  is not high, we advise all students to apply for the Turkey Scholarships , as many evaluation criteria are unknown and some students who do not excel academically can obtain this scholarship as well.

Disadvantages of studying in Turkey
Before starting to talk about the disadvantages of studying in Turkey  , we should talk about the history of study in Turkey for international students   Turkey has started a program to attract internationals since 2012, and the Turkish government has developed a lot of targeting and strategies to attract foreign students wishing to study in Turkey  and increase their numbers in both  public universities and private universities.The number of international students began to increase since 2014 very significantly, and Turkey has become one of the most desirable countries by students wishing to study abroad. The Turkish government plan was to reach 300,000 foreign students in Turkish universities by 2023.In view of pros and cons of studying in Turkey , we note that the disadvantages of studying in Turkey are limited to the non-educational section .  Universities in Turkey  have a global ranking and academic efficiency at the theoretical and practical levels, in addition to the diversity of laboratories, research centers and technical cities. With the increase in the number of foreign students, the Turkish government has prepared the infrastructure to receive international students, but because there is no special department concerned with the affairs of international students in Turkish universities , where international students are registered with Turkish students in the same centers, so some negatives have appeared that students coming to study in Turkish universities suffered between 2014 and 2018 .As a result of this shortage, some service offices, student union presidencies and unofficial representations appeared , taking advantage of the students' need and their lack of knowledge of study procedures in Turkey. After the year 2018, all Turkish universities established a special department for accepting international students in all Turkish universities, and the task of these administrative units is limited to international students, registering and guiding them in their university life and completing their procedures in the study residence . With the establishment of these centers and the increase in the number of international students wishing to study in public universities, a new policy began in accepting international students based on each university conducting the YÖS exam (the YÖS exam is a local exam conducted by Turkish universities to select international students)You can read our article on the YÖS exam for more information. Conducting the test for each university separately led to conducting these tests on unstructured dates where it is possible that there are two tests for two different universities on the same date. To get rid of this problem, the Presidency of the Turkish Higher Education Council, starting from 2023, will conduct the Unified YÖS test inside and outside Turkey.You can read our article about the unified YOS (TR-YÖS) We will mention only the disadvantages that still exist, as most of the disadvantages of studying in Turkey have been fixed.
