Act on Turkish Educational Benevolence, Prof. Urges Nigerians

Experts in the educational sector have urged Nigeria and Africa to seize the opportuni-ty presented by the Turkish Government to provide standard and affordable education for International Students.
In an interview with the international students’ coordinator for Karabuk University in Turkey, Associate Prof. Tanis Kerim said entrance exam for 90 per cent tuition scholar-ship into Karabuk University is currently ongoing at different centres in African coun-tries including Nigeria.
Kerim called on students seeking tertiary admission to seize the opportunity as it would grant them standard education as well as broaden their view to life.
“Education is the key to the development of a country especially when it is standard,” he said.
Speaking on security, he noted that there was no challenge including religious chal-lenges.
He said,” You don’t have to worry about safety, Turkey is peaceful and we have differ-ent religion, including Christians and Muslims co-existing.
“We are rated number one in Turkey for highest number of International Students from eighty countries,” he added.
He stated that training would be organised for all international students unable to speak the Turkish language for maximum one year as this would remove language barriers and help them settle comfortably in the country.
CEO, Goodmus Learning Centre, Adekunle Badmus said the entrance exam ongoing is to help the students discover their field of study so they don’t end up doing courses they can’t cope with.
Badmus said though the exam has already been held in Lagos and Oyo state centres, it would still take place 22nd and 23rd of August in Benin and Abuja before proceeding to Accra and Kumasi in Ghana. He encouraged interested candidates to quickly con-tact Goodmus Learning Centre.
Akinfolarin said though the exam is being organised the fifth time this year in Nigeria and most Nigerians are yet to be aware of this great opportunity.
“There has to be a massive publicity campaign towards an explosive end” Akinfolarin said.
He said 200 students have already gotten admission to Turkish Universities and urged others to quickly benefit from the Turkish plan as it would not last forever.
Talking about the Visa assistance offered to the students, Akinfolarin stated that the Government Universities that their organisation partner with do send the students’ Ac-ceptance Letters signed by the Rector to the Turkish Embassy in Abuja on behalf of the students so that the Embassy becomes aware the school is expecting the students in Turkey.
