New regulations are expected to be introduced in the Turkish Higher Education system in near future, according to a report in Sabah newspaper. The Council of Higher Education (YÖK) is expected to change its name to Higher Education Turkey ( Türkiye Yükseköğretim Kurumu) and to bring new regulations concerning Higher Education governance.
But the most significant change concerns how foreign universities can operate in Turkey. The proposal aims to allow international universities to set up campuses in Turkey as long as they recruit foreign nationals as well as Turkish students.
The proposal aims to bolster Turkey’s ambitions to be a global leader in international Higher Education.
