The Cost of Living:

So, what is the cost of living if you are studying at Biruni University? Let us tell you that you are in Istanbul, the largest Turkish city and the actual economic capital of Turkey.

Istanbul is considered the most expensive city in Turkey in terms of cost of living, but living on the Asian side is slightly cheaper than the European side.

And know, my dear, Istanbul is different from all other cities of Turkey, because it is a large city and its regions are considered small cities in it, therefore, you will not be able to assess the cost of living in Istanbul completely. You must see the area in which you will live.

The average cost of living for a student in a shared housing could be ranging from 2000 to 2500 liras with food and drink. Indeed, this will vary according to your way of life and your other personal expenses, outings and so on.

The important advantage of being in Istanbul is that you’ll be in the midst of trade, industry and business. This will impose itself on your life, personality and opportunities to develop your skills.

In conclusion, we would like to inform you that Turkey Campus will help you apply to Biruni University and even provide you with the best discount on tuition fees, and will be with you until you arrive and settle in Istanbul, apply now.
