| Education Jagat - 16 Aug 2023

A total of 301,694 non-Turkish students enrolled at institutions across the country in the last year, figures from the country’s Council of Higher Education (YÖK) show.
 DEİK Education Economy Business Council president İrfan Gündüz said last year that Turkey was aiming to increase the number of international students it hosted to 300,000 by 2023.
 In 2021/22, the country hosted a total of 260,289. Before the pandemic in 2018, reports suggested that the Turkish president was hoping that the country would welcome 350,000 students but no timeline for reaching the target was given.
 The latest figures are up from the 48,183 total international students recorded in Turkey in the 2013/14 academic year.
 In 2022/23, 34 countries sent more than 1,000 students, with Syria (58,213 students), Azerbaijan (34,247), Iran (22,632), Turkmenistan (18,250), and Iraq (16,172) accounting for the most international enrolments.
