About Turkish Higher Education System

When Turkey passed a new law called the Higher Education Law in 1981, the administration of higher education was completely reorganized. There is a number 2547.

This led to all higher education institutions becoming part of the Council of Higher Education YÖK, which made the system more centrally-planned (CoHE). All the names of the colleges and universities changed after this reorganization.

A national university exam and placement was set up to make it easier for people to get into higher education all over the country. There was a non-profit foundation college in Turkey at that time.
