Universities, faculties and institutes of four-year higher education schools are founded by Law, while the two-year vocational schools, departments and divisions are established by the Council of Higher Education. Universities are under the supervision of this Council and their programmes must be regularly accredited. The Council of Higher Education is a fully autonomous national board of trustees without any political or government affiliation. Universities have their rectors, deans, senate, and administrative boards, as well as student councils. In the universities, the instruction is generally in Turkish, English and French. Students, who are accepted to university but not able to get the efficiency in the required language, are given language course for a year at the universities’ Language Departments.

 Turkey opens the doors of its universities for international students from all over the world.  Qualified Turkish universities will help all international students to get new perspectives. Each university accepts international students on the basis of their own requirements
