FINANCIAL ISSUES

Tuition & Fees

The government sets the minimum and maximum tuition fees for higher education degree programs at the beginning of each academic year. For international students, tuition fees are applied differently in public and non-profit foundation universities and may change from one university to the other. In public universities, the minimum and maximum amounts of tuition fees are decided and announced by the Council of Ministers, taking into consideration the type and duration of study in different disciplines. Then, the university senates decide the exact fees for each program within this scale. In non-profit foundation universities, on the other hand, tuition fees are decided by the Board of Trustees of the university.
