Senior High School in Turkey

Rate this topic


Recommended Posts

Does anyone have experience of moving a student to Turkey (not Istanbul, but a town of about 100,000 people) in the senior high school years? How does the learning style compare to other countries (particularly Australia, but any comparisons welcome)? The student in question is in their second to last year in an Australian high school (ie year 11), and doing the maths/science subjects. They are fluent in spoken Turkish, but rusty in their written language skills. 

I have heard that Turkish schools favour rote learning; also that the Uni Entrance Exam is also based on regurgitating learned information, and that it can be difficult to get into Uni at all.

I am concerned that moving at this stage and breaking off their Australian education, will make it more difficult to obtain any sort of tertiary education.
