Thanks to the presence of foreign embassies, multinational corporations and government offices, Ankara boasts the biggest concentration of international schools in Turkey. There are also several curricula on offer, so expat parents are likely to find a school perfectly suited to their children's needs. As Turkey's political capital, Ankara has a large diplomatic community, which makes competition for placements quite fierce. Parents moving to Ankara should ensure they apply well in advance and prepare for the often comprehensive admission processes.
