Turkey plans on increasing the number of international students in the country as it aimes to host 2,500 undergraduates in the near future, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said earlier. 

Accordingly, the Federation of International Student Associations (UDEF) organised a council meeting in which several academic personnel from 50 countries, foreign graduates who had studied in Turkey and representatives of different NGOs will gather to discuss international mobility and Turkey.

The meeting will be held between Nov.6 to 8 in the Davutpasa Congress Centre of Yildiz Technical University in Istanbul.

The participants will give presentations on international mobility and discuss possible developments in the field.

Turkey has increased its number of guest students from 3,000 to 80,000 in total in the last 12 years, and aims to increase this number still further
