COVID-19 Turkey Update
To appreciate how the Turkey Higher Education System reacted to the spread of the virus, there are some organizational things you should informed about. After being declared as a pandemic by the World Health Organization on March 11, 2020, Corona Virus hit the universities hard all around the world and Turkey is with no exception.
On March 16, the universities in Turkey suspended face-to-face teaching and education was instantly replaced by digital online formats. This has seen the education system evolve about the “new-normal” for some months until recently. The reduction in mortality rates has since allowed some Turkish institutions to resolve contact lessons.
Every country has had its own border protection measures for COVID-19. It is recommended you to thoroughly research on travel restrictions before you plan your study abroad. For a while Turkey like all other states had shut down international travel but this has resolved lately. Now students from abroad can apply to Turkish universities within stipulated guidelines.
Since studies lately have been a blend of virtual and in-person studies, depending on the respective Covid-19 policies as per the respective state and university. As RocApply we are constantly sending newsletters to our students on the prevalent situation and remember to subscribe to access one.
Albeit, our best advice is to confirm directly on the university website how your university will structure upcoming semesters. For more information relating on specific subjects in this regard students are open to send us mails on [email protected] specifying COVID 19 UPDATE on the subject, our team is readily available to assist.
