    England is known throughout the world as an important country that offers high-quality education opportunities. Students who want to go from Turkey to England to receive university education must follow a certain path and meet certain conditions. Each student’s situation may be different, so it is important to contact relevant universities about specific application requirements and processes.

    • The application process usually starts in October-November and ends in January. However, some universities may have different application deadlines, so it is important to follow the application calendar carefully.
    • Applications must usually be supported by a high school diploma (or equivalent) and, in some cases, standardized test results (e.g. A-level, IB, SAT, ACT). Additionally, some departments may require extra entrance exams or interviews.


    Universities in the UK generally evaluate applications based on the student’s academic achievement, reference letters and personal statement. Some majors, especially medicine, law, and other competitive fields, may require higher grade point averages and certain qualifications.

    English proficiency is also important. International students usually must take English proficiency tests such as IELTS or TOEFL and achieve a certain score.


    The education systems of Turkey and England are different, which may affect the adaptation process of students. Here are some main differences:

    • While there are generally three-year undergraduate programs in the UK, undergraduate education in Turkey is generally four years. However, some British universities also offer four-year programmes.
    • The education system in the UK is more student-centred and generally gives students more freedom and responsibility. Students often have more flexibility in choosing their courses and determining their own learning path.
    • The education system in Turkey is more exam-oriented and generally uses a system based on exams and course grades to measure students’ achievements.

    Studying at university in the UK is a great opportunity for students who want to gain international experience and receive a world-class education. However, it is important to do careful planning and research during this process.

    For Turkish students, there are some important differences between receiving university education in England and Turkey. Here are the differences, their advantages and disadvantages:

    1. Academic Quality and International Recognition
      England: England is home to world-renowned and respected universities. Universities in the UK generally have high academic standards and enjoy high prestige internationally.
      Turkey: Universities in Turkey also provide quality education, but their international recognition is generally not as high as that of universities in the UK.
    2. Educational Process and Approach
      England: Universities in the UK generally adopt a student-centred approach to education. Students are given a wide choice of courses and freedom and are often allowed to determine their own learning path.

    3. Language and Cultural Experience

      Turkey: Studying at universities in Turkey offers the opportunity to improve the Turkish language and gain a deeper understanding of the local culture. However, international experience and cultural diversity may be more limited than education in the UK.
    4. Cost
