Istanbul has a colorful and varied education sector that has gone through several changes in recent years. But international schools that provide education in foreign languages have been central to the city’s history ever since Ottoman ties with European powers prompted French, Italian, and German educators to set up in Istanbul in the 1800s. These schools still offer education in their original languages, alongside homegrown English-language institutions such as Bogazici University, which are widely regarded as the best in the country and, arguably, the Middle East.
As private institutions, each of these have their own admission requirements and enrollment procedures. Most provide a fully accredited international baccalaureate program to their students, and curriculums and holidays are coordinated with their European counterparts.
