This time EEUA returned to Turkey after a short break. The seminar which had been held in Bodrium (see previous article) proved to be so successful that the Turkish partners encouraged our Association to participate in the prominent educational exhibition in Turkey. The "EDU Fair" lasted from March 18th to March 25th in several Turkish towns including Ankara, Izmir, Adana and Istanbul. The format of the exhibition was flexible, but quite intense. Suffice to say that more than 20 universities were presented at the event.
Apparently, the demand for higher education in Russia and in Ukraine among Turkish students has significantly increased in recent years. Applicants in all cities expressed their strong interest towards courses offered by the universities-members of the Association. Our team covered multiple questions of prospective students, thus supporting them in their decision. All applicants were provided with EEUA brochures where it is easy to find all necessary information. Significantly, our team managed to achieve its goals during this trip as it had visited all four cities.
In coclusion, it is necessary to emphasize the importance of this journey for both our partners in Turkey and for our Association. The substantial exhibition in Turkey is yet another step to advance the positions of Russia and Ukraine as centers of higher educations.
