Discover your potential in the Turkish market, and meet your future students
This segment is very important in Turkey. Because of a shortage of places at public Turkish universities, many students are not able to attend university in Turkey. Due to this lack of opportunity within the country, the Turkish Higher Education Council reached a decision last year which allows students who were unable to enter Turkish universities to seek education abroad on the condition that they pass the Turkish University Placement exam. If they do not pass this exam, their foreign degree will not be recognized in Turkey.

28th IEFT Exhibition Statistics
October 11-19, 2015
28th IEFT Summary
We were happy to welcome over 300 exhibitors representing around 170 institutions from 25 different countries to the 28th IEFT International Education Fairs of Turkey in Ankara, Izmir, Istanbul Eruopen Side, Istanbul Asian Side and Bursa. Thank you for supporting the Turkish market and participating in our exhibition. Your involvement not only contributed to the success of the event, but also helped us to maintain our position as the largest international education exhibition in the region.
Please find the statistics from the 28th IEFT Fairs below. This includes the participants and exhibitors per city, number of student visitors per city, visitor age groups, which programs students were interested in, visitor education profile, visitor subjects of interest, and which countries students are looking into.
While we endeavour to capture information on each visitor coming to the venues, we are not always able to do so. This can occur when visitors arrive in groups and/or with their families. To insist they all fill out a form slows the registration process as well as can make the visitors uncomfortable, which we respect. Moreover,some forms are incomplete or illegible thus impeding us from including them in our data. Please keep in mind that the following numbers can contain an error factor but have been calculated as accurately as we are able to report.
We look forward to welcoming you to Turkey!
IEFT was founded in 2001 as an organization committed to bringing quality education providers together with motivated students and their families. Our aim is to create greater visibility for the many “study abroad” options available around the globe. Every year, around 100,000 Turkish students choose to travel abroad for their education. Turkey is a market that cannot be overlooked. And the IEFT exhibitions have proven to be the venue where prospective students and their families gather the valuable information required to make solid decisions for their futures.In the changing economic climate, one thing remains consistent: the need for international educational partnerships, opportunities and exposure. Each year Turkey sees over a million and a half Turkish students competing for only 700,000 entrance positions in post secondary institutions. Space restrictions in Turkey’s educational facilities are a major factor contributing to Turkey’s large education export. This year, along with China and South Korea, Turkey was featured as one of the largest growing student markets, a market which IEFT is happy to be a part of.IEFT Exhibitions bring you not only top Turkish students but also total support from our friendly and helpful IEFT team, an amazing social and cultural calendar of events and excellent branding in this exciting student market. As IEFT we have many international partners that support us in this arket to make a specialized country village such as; British Education Village, Education in the USA Village, Education in Canada Village (supported by Canadian Consulate General), Study in Australia illage (supported by Austrade), Study in France (supported by ampusFrance), Study in Germany (supported by DAAD), Study in Estonia, Study in Lithuania, Study in Sweden (supported by Swedish Institute), Study in Poland, Education in Ireland , Education Malaysia (supported by Consulate General of Malaysia) and etc. at the IEFT Exhibitions. Villages allow groups to successfully brand not only heir partner schools but also their countries. IEFT guarantees support before, during and after the fairs!IEFT’s Spring, Summer and Fall circuits ensure optimal visitor attendance: The daylight hours are longer and the weather is pleasant; in March and April students are preparing for their next course of action for the summer and beyond; in October, new graduates will have recently found out their national exam standing (exam is in June but actual results and placement assignment in August), and are researching their options abroad.
You should plan on participating if:
It is important to keep top-of-mind awareness in Turkey. With the myriad schools trying to penetrate the market, you should develop a presence and maintain it. This is best achieved by combining event participation at IEFT with building solid relationships with reliable partner universities, colleges or educational agencies.
