The University of Exeter founded Exeter Turkish Studies in 2009. This research centre is designed to carry out world-class research and provide supervision to post-graduate students on Turkish history and culture from its origins to the present day.
The founding of this research centre is inspired by the growing importance of Turkey as a major political and cultural player in the modern world. Exeter Turkish Studies combines resources and experience from several of Exeter University's Academic Colleges to provide study of Turkey over a wide disciplinary range and with a deep historical perspective.
ExTS invites applications to the range of taught postgraduate programmes at MA level, which offer the opportunity to study Turkish language, history and culture.
