Currently there are about 895,000 students who took the Transition to Higher Education Examination (YGS) in the year 2010.

The lively city of Istanbul is currently seen as one of the dynamic cities in Turkey, and the introduction of these new universities will do wonders for the ever-growing property in Istanbul market, with potential investors seeing a great opportunity to invest in Istanbul.

The new universities range from: State University Bursa Technical University (BTÜ) which will offer mechanical engineering and chemistry courses in the 2011-2012 academic year, to Sabahattin Zaim University, which is a private University. Kemerburgaz University plans to offer 90% scholarships to all 810 students that it can cater for.
