- Have you ever heard about the Turkish Scholarship and the advantages it offers to students who want to study in Turkey? If the answer is no, then let us tell you in the following lines all about this scholarship.

- The Turkish scholarship provides students with travel, accommodation, and transportation expenses. Nevertheless, the most important advantage for any student is studying in universities ranked among top 500 universities worldwide.

 

Firstly, what is the Turkish scholarship?

It is a free scholarship offered by the Turkish government to foreigners from around the world, and it is considered one of the most prominent scholarship programs offered by countries all over the world.

This is due to many reasons, including the fact that the Turkish scholarship holds almost all academic majors, at different educational levels, such as bachelor's, master's, and doctorate.

The Turkish government provides students with more than 4,000 scholarships every year, which increases in the percentage of those wishing to apply for the Turkish scholarship.

Advantages of the Turkish Scholarship:

1- Accommodation

- The scholarship provides students with private accommodation without any fees, which is a university housing that offers a suitable environment for studying, creating new friendships, and building relationships with individuals of different nationalities.

- If the students did not like to stay in the housing offered by the university, they can move where they want, but they should note that this option will be at their own expense.

- Before you think about this, you should know that the housing facilities of the university includes all services the student may need, makes his life easier, and also provides daily meals.

2- Health insurance

- The Turkish scholarship provides students with comprehensive health insurance, through which the student can obtain medical, treatment and pharmaceutical services in all governmental hospitals without any charge. Also, if the student wishes to go to private hospitals, he will not pay similar fees to others, but he will be charged reduced fees.

- Health expenses often worry foreign students, so if you are destined to get the Turkish scholarship, do not miss the opportunity of benefiting from the comprehensive health insurance provided by the scholarship.

3- Turkish language

- As known, studying in Turkish universities is in the language of the country itself, so you are required to master the Turkish language in order to make full use of the scholarship, and the promising thing here is that the scholarships provide you with a one year Turkish language learning course.

4- Flight tickets

- Many students are delighted to receive a scholarship in a country, but what impedes this joy is a term that states that “The scholarship does not include travel expenses”. This is a term that doesn’t exist in the Turkish scholarship which provides students with two tickets; one to Turkey, and the other is from Turkey to their home country after the end of their studying period.
