Report lays out state of English in Turkish universities

The report, titled “The State of English in Higher Education in Turkey,” was released on Wednesday and focuses on the quality of English-language teaching in universities in Turkey. It makes recommendations such as giving consideration “to the creation and funding of a project to increase the quality of universities in Turkey” and that the curriculums in universities be shifted from English for General Purposes (EGP) toward English for Academic Purposes (EGAP).

The report claims that Turkey has focused on increasing the quantity of universities rather than the quality of teaching. “While there has also been an improvement in quality, with a number of universities performing well in the Times Higher Education Supplement global university rankings, there are 100 Turkish universities that fall outside of the world’s top 2,000 universities according to Turkey’s own URAP [University Ranking by Academic Performance] rankings,” it said.

“Credit-bearing English language courses should be maintained throughout all undergraduate and graduate programs,” the report said.
