Disadvantages of studying in Türkiye that no one told you about

On the Study Shoot website, we will talk to you about many of the negatives of studying in Turkey that you must think about carefully after you have read enough on other sites about the Turkish advantages.

Not everything you hear about Turkey is true, as many talk about Turkey being an attractive point for students, as the country offers many benefits and talks about the climate and other things. 

But the rate of racism, which not many people talk about, especially with Arab students, is increasing significantly.

You may have heard about some incidents and problems, and you may have also heard about the economic problems inside Turkey. All of this will reflect negatively during your presence and study in Türkiye.

I wrote another article to do justice to Türkiye in education, and I talked about... Advantages of studying in Türkiye.

Disadvantages of studying in Türkiye

Language barrier

One of the most important disadvantages of studying in Türkiye is the language. Students find it difficult to communicate with Turkish people.

The Turks are very fanatical about their language, even though it is a local language, not an international one, and it does not benefit you with anything outside the Turkish borders. Although the Turkish language is an easy language and does not require a lot of effort when it comes to learning this language, people from different countries find it difficult In interacting with people in the early stages because you will feel people's distance from you.

racism

It is also considered one of the most terrible disadvantages of studying in Türkiye, especially in large cities such as Istanbul, Ankara, and Izmir. Before 2015, there was no great understanding of the meaning of racism and hatred towards Arabs in Turkey, but now, unfortunately, events have developed a lot. I personally experienced more than one racist situation in Turkey for ridiculous reasons, such as one of the Turks saying to me: You take our money and immigrate with it to Europe. Note that I was only in Türkiye for the purpose of visiting for a short period, and I spent more than $3000 of my money there.

Longing and nostalgia for family and homeland

This is not only one of the disadvantages of studying in Turkey, but of course moving to an unfamiliar country, adapting to a new culture, especially to the so-called new Turkish civilization, and learning a new language may sometimes be frustrating, and thus students feel homesick; This is a natural phenomenon and human nature that one had to deal with.

So if you are not really that type, you can think again about your decision. 

We recommend the following articles for you:

Difficulty applying for a work permit

Although the Turkish economy is in constant decline, and this is what you do not see on government and local television screens, it is very difficult to obtain a work permit as an Arab student.

If you are thinking about working here, only think about freelancing. And get the idea of ​​working as an employee in a Turkish institution out of your mind.

But also to start any project in Turkey, you need a work permit, and this process involves a lot of paperwork, and you will find yourself going in and out of several government offices throughout the day.

The process is tiring and takes a lot of time. Do not forget what we mentioned previously in this article: the government official speaks his mother tongue, which makes the situation more difficult. 

Forget about punctuality

The map of the country is a bit difficult to understand, and sometimes drivers don't know the way out.

When it comes to reaching somewhere on time, this is obviously not possible because you can see the lanes changing at any time, and punctuality is not a thing in this country. This negativity makes me not favor Türkiye as the victor in education.

Education is education before that, and I think it is also one of the most important disadvantages of studying in Türkiye.

The quality of education is not international and recognized

Someone wrote in his blog, comparing education in Turkey and Germany, for example, and the funny thing in the end is that Turkey was the one who prevailed, and this is what surprised me all the time, which actually made me laugh.

Regardless of the university you go to and the specialty you choose, the general appreciation for the education system will be very low if we compare it to one of the smallest European countries, Brussels, for example.

Students complain about the difficulty of accessing various resources and the language problem they face while communicating with their professors. One must be vigilant while choosing the university from which they wish to complete their higher education. 

Turkish university degrees are not recognized in Europe

Disadvantages of studying in Türkiye that no one told you about STUDYSHOOT

This news may shock you, but this is the truth that you should know. Many will tell you that a Turkish university degree will enable you to work directly in Germany, for example, or Sweden, or even in Saudi Arabia. But this is not true.

In order to obtain a work permit after graduating from Turkish universities, you must submit a modification application, and in 99% of the cases that I know of from students who contacted us on the Study Shoot website, to obtain a work permit for them in Germany or the Netherlands, it was always rejected because the certificate Not fully recognized.

The choice here for these young people was to re-study some subjects at a German or Dutch university so that they could finally modify their certificate and obtain a comparative certificate.

Think well. Don't bother searching for a long time. If your future plan is beyond Turkey, do not think about it at all and look for a second study destination that is better for you.
