Most foreign students live on limited budgets. It is important to manage money wisely in order to ensure that it lasts for as long as possible. Because it takes time for newcomers to adjust to the value of Turkish currency it can be difficult to estimate daily living expenses. Students should be cautious about spending money. Here are some tips about managing money:

Keep accurate records

Keeping track of expenditures by category (e.g. books, recreation, food) can pinpoint areas of heavy spending which might help you budget your money more wisely. ATMs are widely available in major cities and tourist areas. Local currency can also be obtained from banks and exchange offices, known as “döviz bürosu” in Turkish. Value Added Tax (VAT) or KDV in Turkish, is 18% and is included in the price.
