Internships and studying in Turkey

Exchange of Dutch and Turkish students through the student program
To strengthen an exchange of knowledge between Dutch and Turkish students, the Honorary Consulate-General of Turkey (HCG Turkey) has a student program. The HCG Turkey does this in cooperation with the University of Applied Sciences Leiden, University of Applied Sciences Utrecht, Leiden University Medical Center (LUMC), and the University Medical Center Utrecht (UMC).

The student program offers students the following options:
  • Internships (in relation to Turkey)
  • Graduation projects (in relation to Turkey)
  • Project Export Plan for companies who (want to) do business with Turkey
  • Internships for medical students at various hospitals in Turkey

Cooperation with University of Applied Sciences Leiden and Utrecht
In 2011, the HCG Turkey entered into a partnership with University of Applied Sciences Leiden and University of Applied Sciences Utrecht for a period of three years. The collaboration offers students the opportunity to participate in an internship or to complete a graduation assignment in a company in, or in relation to, Turkey. The HCG Turkey mediates and advises students in finding a suitable internship. The focus is now on the fields of Commercial Economics, Marketing, Communications and Human Resources.

Export Advice for companies wishing to do business in or with Turkey
Companies considering doing business in or with Turkey need information about Turkey, the Turkish market, and the culture and way of doing business. Students from University of Applied Sciences Leiden can thereby help entrepreneurs by exploring the market and providing advice within the international project, Export Plan.

The HCG Turkey helps medical students by organizing internships at hospitals in Turkey. The HCG Turkey works in The Netherlands with the Leiden University Medical Center (LUMC), the University Medical Center Utrecht (UMC Utrecht), Erasmus Medical Center (Erasmus MC) and several large (private) hospitals in Turkey.
