UK Education Tour Turkey & Azerbaijan 2012

Thank you to all who joined us for the UK Education Tour, Turkey and Azerbaijan.

We hope you found the events beneficial in terms of new contacts, market intelligence and meeting focussed students in the best venues with the most focussed marketing. UK Education is a high-end, high quality option which we believe should be marketed as such: Boutique events, not supermarkets!

To improve our events we appreciate your feedback:

We will be returning to Baku next Autumn, and to Turkey in the Spring, and hope that you can join us again, as we build an excellent platform for UK education recruitment – the UK Education Tour!

Turkey: New Business Development

 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:

Adana: Adana is the capital of Adana Province, home to 1.6 million people. The Adana-Mersin metropolitan area has a population of 3 million people. Çukurova University is placed among the top 500 universities of the world in research conducted by Blackwell Publishing, Quacquarelli Symonds and The Times.

Antalya: The population of Antalya has increased significantly in recent years, to over 1 million. The leading economic sectors are tourism, agriculture, ship building and commerce. Akdeniz University has an student body of over 30,000 students.

Gaziantep: A population of 1.4 million, and home to one of Turkey’s largest uninversites – Gaziantep University – and the private Zirve University, Gaziantep has a thriving economy based on industry, importing/exporting, agriculture and tourism. Gaziantep’s tourism industry is thriving, offering Museums dedicated to its recent and ancient history, a Citadel and historic bazaars.

Konya: Central Anatolian Konya has a population of over 1 million people, and Selçuk University is one of the largest public universities in Turkey. Rumi’s tomb is in the city, whose followers established the Mevlevi Sufi order of Islam there and became known as the whirling dervishes.

Trabzon: Trabzon is located on the historic silk road, on the Black Sea in Turkey’s north east. Nearly a million people live in the city and surrounding area. Karadeniz Technical University hosts students from all over Turkey, as well as students from the Turkic states in Central Asia.

Market Survey – Turkey

The British Council and English UK will produce a series of comprehensive market studies in order to provide support for UK ELT providers in recruiting students from overseas to UK English language programmes.

This series will focus on the key markets overseas that are vital for the work of accredited UK English language teaching providers.

Levant Education has been contracted to produce the Turkey market study. As part of the extensive research required for the report, surveys are useful to gauge the experiences of schools marketing in Turkey.

Thank you for your time and thoughts – your contribution is really valuable, and will help ensure that the report is relevant and useful for the UK ELT sector.

The survey / polls are now closed. Thank you to all who participated. Results and the full report will be published soon.

About you / your school:



Turkey is famous (notorious?) for fairs. What is your view?

All responses are anonymous and results will be published as percentages.

The results will help shape parts of the report, which will help English UK members better understand the Turkish market.

If you would like to enter the draw to win one year’s free membership, worth £1395, please leave your details below. The final draw will be made on July 27th and the winner will be notified by July 30th.
