The quality of the system is also reflected in international ranking lists. According to The Times Higher Education BRICS & Emerging Economies Rankings in 2014, there are 7 Turkish universities in the top 100 university list, and 3 of them are in the top 10. Turkish universities offer high quality studies and are an integral part of the European education space.

There is an increasing number of universities offering programs taught in English, and these include Medicine, Engineering, Humanities, Business, and Finance. Turkey is part of the Bologna Process since 2001 and is also a member of many different international platforms. What this means is that, first of all all students can continue their education in other countries with ECTS (European Credit Transfer System) and secondly, they can get their diplomas recognized by other countries.
