At UK Education Tour we aim to help you develop new markets within Turkey.
With over 50 million people living outside of the biggest cities (Istanbul and Ankara) it’s important to keep on working at developing recruitment from different regions in Turkey.
So, for UKET Spring 2013 we will follow Baku, Istanbul and Ankara with a 4th city in Turkey: In the early stages we are asking for your opinion as to the city to visit on April 30th 2013:
