Turkish Proficiency Certificate is a Great Advantage

Those who hold the Turkish Proficiency Certificate at the end of TPT, applied for Turkish to attain a standardized test on the international scale and to support policies that facilitate admission of foreign students, are exempt from Turkish Preparatory Class when they are qualified to receive education in any Turkish university. Turkish Proficiency Certificate provides a great advantage in job applications to individuals who wish to work in companies that operate in Turkey or their respective countries, who aspire to become a Turkish interpreter or teaching candidates who wish to teach Turkish abroad as well as students.

The last application date for Turkish Proficiency Test, held three times a year as the first was held on January 14th this year, was determined as August 12th. Students who learn Turkish as a foreign language, students who need to certify their Turkish skills for application and admission to universities in Turkey, prospective teachers who wish to teach Turkish at various institutions abroad, interpreters who want to certify their knowledge of Turkish, in short, anyone who wants to test their Turkish language skills can take TPT.
