Turkey: Academix to open Azeri and Iranian offices

Turkish education counselling agency Academix Study Abroad Services has announced it will expand into Azerbaijan and Iran to recruit students to North America and Europe, as well as to promote Turkish education institutions.

The offices in Tehran and Baku will each have four counsellors

Academix, which became a partner of a2 International Education Fairs in 2019, will open its first overseas offices in each country’s capital city – Baku and Tehran – joining its 14 offices in Turkey at the end of September.

“We expect to recruit around 150-200 students from each office for the first year”

The agency, founded in 1996, sees the move as a way to reach the demand of young populations seeking study options in the US, the UK, Canada and Europe.

It will also help Iranian and Azeri students find study places in Turkey.

Azerbaijan is one of the fastest-growing student-market in Central Asia, according to the company, while Azeri students seek to study in Turkey, the UK and the US.

Around 60% of Iran’s population of 60 million is aged 30 or younger, with students attracted to studying in the US, Germany, Canada and the UK.

“We expect to recruit around 150-200 students from each office for the first year,” Selçuk Atmaca, branch manager at Academix’s Taksim Office in Istanbul.

The offices in Tehran and Baku will have four counsellors each, joining Academix’s more than 60 counsellors in Turkey.

Academix joins Atlas in recruiting students to Turkish universities – Atlas offices in Morocco and Baku seek to promote Turkish universities to local prospective students.
