One of the most important issues on which international ranking institutions are based is the number of foreign students. While this rate varies between 5% and 10% in quality universities, it seems to be above 90% especially in universities located in Cyprus. Foreign Student recruitment consists of a complex structure that comes together with many methods and components.
With the solution of legal infrastructure problems, the next step should be the preparation of an international student recruitment office that will serve students. This office should be equipped to manage not only student recruitment, but also all processes from career choice counseling to postgraduation processes. This office is required to carry out all student-oriented processes such as student admissions, visa and residency processes, registration and course registration, accommodation and orientation, with the logic of student affairs.
One of the necessary structures for the institution in recruiting foreign students is the Turkish Teaching Center (TÖMER). Even if it is not possible to open a center for the institution, it is important to open a course in partnership with reliable institutions or which institutions from the private sector will accept the documents for students to attend the classes. Since there are institutions that issue certificates for a fee in this field, attention should be paid and students should start the lessons with language proficiency.
The work on how to supply foreign students should be managed by the team. There are two approaches to this issue. The first of these approaches is that the institution can provide students with office efforts. These efforts are to organize the web page, which is the face of the institution, in a way that can be used by international students and easily applied. Good computing capacity and service are essential in international student management. Not only the web page, but also many digital information management systems such as mail management portal, student affairs portals, agency registration portals are required.
