Arab and international schools in Istanbul for 2022

  It is undeniable fact that the number of the Arab community in its various components has increased continuously in Turkey, especially in Istanbul, which is the heart of Turkey, and because of this increase the availability of schools and universities that teach Arabic curriculum, whether in Arabic, Turkish or English, has become an urgent demand day by day.

In this article, we will address the topic of Arab and international schools in Istanbul, and we will clarify the most important points that revolve around them in terms of the quality of the curriculum they teach and what languages of teaching are adopted, and we will discuss the most important factors that play a key role in choosing the best school.

 

 

Over the past five years, the education sector for foreigners has witnessed an accelerated change in the field of school establishment, where investing in education is considered a successful investment in Turkey in general and in Istanbul in particular.

 these schools have varied according to the diversity of Arab communities and their different concentration in different areas, which has affected the nature of the curricula of these schools.

 we can see in Istanbul the presence of schools teaching Iraqi, Libyan, Lebanese, Palestinian, and Yemeni curricula, and because of the development of education systems, some schools have adopted some foreign curricula (British, American, and Canadian) Some schools have succeeded in applying this idea with high efficiency, and some other schools have suffered in this subject and a mock addition has remained to no real concrete benefit.

What are the most important criteria to pay attention to when choosing the right school?

 

There is a range of factors and criteria to consider when choosing the right school for your children, including:

  • The location of the school for the residence place:

It is considered the most important of these factors due to the massive distances in Istanbul, the journey from school to home can take more than two hours if you choose a school away from the place of residence, which is uncomfortable, tiring, and time-consuming process.

  • The school must be accredited and registered with the Turkish Ministry of Education:

This point is very important as some schools and academies have recently spread in Istanbul, those schools do not have a license from the Ministry of Education, so the certificates granted by these schools and academies are not recognized by the Turkish government, which causes a lot of problems for students who have studied and obtained the certificates of those schools.

To find out if the school is registered or accredited in the Turkish Ministry of Education, you should review the Center of the Turkish Ministry of Education.

Istanbul Mıllı Eğılım Müdürülüğü

Or you can visit the department's website:  https://istanbul.meb.gov.tr/

  • Why should the school be registered or accredited in the Ministry of Education of the mother country?

If you want to study in an international school with an Iraqi curriculum, for example, this school must be accredited by the Ministry of Education and Higher Education in Iraq and registered in the mother country or it will not receive a document at the end of the year and the school evacuation signed and stamped by the Iraqi Ministry of Education, which allows the holder to continue studying in the motherland.

 

  • The type of curriculum you want your children to study as mentioned earlier, there are many Arab and international curricula taught in Istanbul, so the options are multiple and varied in terms of choosing the right curriculum for your children, for example, you can enroll your children in a school that teaches the Iraqi curriculum international side (British or American).

 We will present a table showing the distribution of Arab and international schools in Istanbul in both the European and Asian sections with a view to the curriculum adopted in each school as well as a detailed address for each school:

Top FAQs about Arab and international schools in Istanbul: Q1: What are the prices of registration premiums in Istanbul for Arab and international schools?

The price of an annuity for any school in Istanbul depends on several factors such as the type of curriculum adopted in teaching and whether the curriculum is taught in more than one language and depends on the level and competence of the teaching staff, so the rates for registration in these schools start from approximately 1000 USD and if teaching in English is available so it approximately $2000 and in some highly qualified schools with global curricula, the registration fee may reach 5000 USD.

Q2: What are the most important requirements and conditions for studying in international schools in Istanbul:

To be able to register in an Istanbul Arab school, the student must first obtain admission from this school, and to obtain admission, the school's fees must be paid, and the following documents must be submitted:

  • The student must have a valid passport.
  • The student must submit the latest certificate with the marks.
  • Submit the letter of recommendation.
  • Submit a letter of motivation.
  • Evaluate a language certificate (if any).
  • After admission, the student must obtain a study visa in addition to the identity document and must submit a letter of financial capacity.
Q3: El can get a student's utility visa in Turkey?

Many families tend to be with their children during school and student parents do not need a visa to visit their children and this is one of the advantages of studying in Turkish schools. We should mention here that families who buy a property in Turkey can obtain Turkish citizenship and passport if the value of the property is more than 250,000 US dollars, but if the value of the property is less than 250,000 US dollars, applicants will receive temporary residence, which can be extended for up to ten years.
