Why Türkiye and Why Canada?
Türkiye is a priority country in Canada’s international education sector. With 12.95 million young people aged 15 to 24, a growing population increasingly interested in international education, and a wide range of world-leading universities, Türkiye is a major education hub in the Eurasia and Middle East regions.
Canada is a leading education hub with 150+ universities and colleges throughout its vast geography. Nearly 70% of international students who have chosen Canada to pursue their studies have done so thanks to the quality of its institutions and educational system. Canada’s higher education system is skills-focused and labour-market-oriented, with a wide range of training and partnership opportunities in all fields of knowledge.

- Senior leadership of Canadian and Turkish Universities & Colleges
