Background: Educational Exchange with Turkey

 

Source: Open Doors: Report on International Educational Exchange, published annually by IIE.  For more information, including press releases on foreign students in the U.S. and U.S. study abroad, and FAQs, including definitions of foreign students and foreign scholars, visit the Open Doors page on the IIENetwork website, at www.opendoors.iienetwork.org, or contact Debbie Gardner/Heidi Reinholdt at Halstead Communications, 212-734-2190.

In academic year 2001/02, there were 12,091 students from Turkey studying in the United States (up 10.1 percent from the previous year).  Turkey is the eighth leading place of origin for students in the United States, up from #9 the previous year.

Academic Level.  The majority of the Turkish students study at the graduate level.  In 2001/02, their breakdown was as follows:

58.8%      graduate students

31.5%      undergraduate

9.8%         other

Historical trends.  Two years ago, Turkey joined the list of top ten sending countries and has been showing significant growth ever since.  Following last year’s 8.7% increase, the number of students in the U.S. from Turkey increased by 10.1% in 2001/02.  This year, Turkey moved up a spot from ninth to become the eighth-leading sending nation.

Note:
  Study abroad figures in the Open Doors report reflect credit given by U.S. campuses in the survey year to their students who studied abroad in the academic year just completed, including the summer term, and therefore the report shows study abroad activity for the prior academic year.
