(Qasioun)_According to Anadolu agency, Turkey and Qatar have agreed to jointly open an international university for Syrian refugees, to be located in Turkey’s southeastern province of Gaziantep.
The university will primarily educate Syrian refugees in the English and Arabic languages, and will teach a variety of subjects.
This university was agreed to be established, after Sheikha Moza, the Qatari king’s mum visit, in Oct. 2014, the signing of a memorandum on joint education projects for refugees followed this visit.
Some 2 million Syrians have fled to Turkey since 2011, of whom around 50,000 are of university age.
However, Syrian refugees are able to continue their education in Turkish universities with “special student” status, but it is unclear to what extent their graduation certificate will be accredited globally.
