The fair welcomes nearly 20,000 Turkish students to each of the semi-annual fairs. Throughout the past 12 years, the International Education Fair of Turkey has grown to become the largest education exhibition in both Turkey and the Middle-East, with universities from more than 30 countries attending every year.
The Fair focuses solely on the Turkish Market, and therefore has built a reputation with students throughout the country through strong marketing and promotion of the exhibitions, and excellent relationships with local high schools, universities, language schools and Turkish agents. The Fall 2016 event welcomed over 300 exhibitors representing over 150 institutions from 25 different countries.
Turkey is a quickly-developing country, with the youngest population ratio in Europe and a clear market for overseas education. Turkey has a long history of placing great value in education and the pursuit of lifelong learning. Each year sees approximately 1.65 million Turkish students compete for only 529,000 entrance positions in post secondary institution.
Fair students are from very respected universities and high schools of Turkey. The international education fairs in Turkey are also visited by a number of young and experienced professionals looking for education opportunities abroad. The Fair has a professional and hands-on approach to meeting the needs of our participating institutions, and also to bringing the highest quality Turkish students to its fairs. The Fair is committed to making the recruitment process both successful and enjoyable for both participants and students.
Students attending the exhibition are looking for education all over the world. While the UK and the USA continue to dominate student interest, they are looking more and more towards programs in Canada, Europe and Asia.
We give participating institutions complete support before, during and after the fairs, including:
Istanbul, Ankara and Izmir 7,767
Istanbul (3 days) + 1 city 2,039

IEFT did a good job of advertising
I have been doing recruitmens trips for 28 years so I have much room for comparison. This was the best organized...Attendance indicates that IEFT did a good job of advertising. I am often asked about fairs by other schools who know my extensive travel. I will heartily recommend IEFT. Hope (IEFT) keeps in touch with me for future fairs.
Amazing help and support during the IEFT fairs
Thank you every so much for your amazing help and support during the IEFT fairs. I truly enjoyed it. So far this is the best organized fair that I’ve been to. Everything was great. The fair was extra busy and I met really interesting and potential students. I wanted to thank you for all your help and hospitality – it was an amazing experience and I love Turkey even more now!
