ERASMUS+ GRANT FOR TURKEY AND COST LIVING IN TURKEY

When you come to our country, you will receive a 1200 £ (300£ for a month) grant for an average of 4 months. Turkey is one of the cheapest countries in terms of cost of living compared to other western countries. Especially Afyonkarahisar is a more suitable province in terms of cost of living compared to other provinces. Incoming exchange students at AKU are exempted from paying tuition fee during their study period. The only expenses during the exchange period are living and accommodation costs. Living and accommodation costs depend very much on your personal spending habits and expenses for travelling and social life. But generally 200-250 € can be considered as enough for a student who wishes to study in Afyonkarahisar.

ORIENTATION AND LANGUAGE COURSE
We organize an orientation program for students coming from abroad. In the program, we first introduce our university and our city and then we organize a city tour. In this way, our students coming from abroad provide the opportunity to integrate with other foreign students and meet the office staff. Turkish language course will be opened if demand is sufficient.
