Report: Turkey Spring 2013

UK Education Tour returned to Turkey in April for an intensive weekend of events in Istanbul and Ankara. 

The event coincided with the first sunny weekend of the year, ensuring that the students attending were high calibre, serious enquirers about studying in the UK. This event was the first to feature private interviews, where students booked slots for 1-to-1 sessions with UK university officers.

We also added value to this Spring’s event by adding school visits as part of the Tour, with visits to Robert College, MEF and TED Colleges, which were well received by university counsellors and students.

The UK Education Tour is successfully promoting UK education as a high quality, high value option for discerning students looking abroad for university and language education. In an exhibition obsessed market, UK Education Tour is the only UK-only, high-end event that limits participation and is organised independently. This year we were supported by UKTI in Turkey to increase the reach and effectiveness of marketing. 

“If you want to see hoards of people coming through the door, then the UKET fairs are probably not for you. If however you want to meet focused, qualified students in premier venues, then the UKET fairs should be your first choice when considering your marketing activities in Turkey”.David Thornber, Durham University (Turkey & Azerbaijan, November 2012).

“UKET provide the best events I have ever attended, consistently attracting the best students and boosting interest in UK education”.
