Education for Turkish students

In Turkey, there is a great interest in Russian education in the field of nuclear energy on the part of Turkish students. Today, Turkish personnel are actively training for jobs at the future nuclear power plant.


In order to implement the International Government Agreement, the Russian Federation provided an opportunity for Turkish students to receive specialized education in Russian universities.


Today, Turkish students are studying at National Research Nuclear University MEPhI (Moscow Engineering Physics Institute) and St. Petersburg Polytechnic University (SPbPU). After they have received education and training at the educational and technical centers of Rosatom, all graduates are to work at the first nuclear station in Turkey - Akkuyu NPP in the province of Mersin.


The total duration of training will be about 7 years: students will learn Russian during one year, then they will have four years of training for a degree in “Nuclear Power Plants, Design, Operation, and Engineering”, after which they will have an internship at one of the enterprises of the nuclear industry of Russia, depending on the qualification awarded upon graduation.


Students are accommodated in groups of 2-3 people in a student dormitory, they are provided with medical insurance, a ticket from Ankara to Moscow at the beginning of the academic year (one-time) and a ticket from Moscow to Ankara at the end of the academic year (one-time). 5 coordinators and 1 head of the educational program work to provide assistance to students. One of the coordinators is responsible for student safety issues. All coordinators speak Russian, Turkish and are available to students 24 hours a day.


Students will receive a scholarship throughout their studies.


In March 2018, the first graduation of Turkish students with a degree in the nuclear energy field took place. 35 young specialists have successfully completed their studies with a degree in “Nuclear Power Plants, Design, Operation, and Engineering” at MEPhI, the main specialized university of the Russian nuclear industry. All of them received job offers at AKKUYU NUCLEAR JSC, and they have been working in the company for a year now.


In February 2019, AKKUYU NUCLEAR JSC offered a job to the second graduation wave of Turkish young nuclear scientists. 53 MEPhI graduates (year 2019) received job offers in the company.


In February 2020, 54 graduates of MEPhI received their diplomas, followed by job offers to join the Akkuyu project.


Education in Russian universities at the expense of the Russian budget is under way for more than 120 Turkish students.


The Akkuyu NPP construction project needs young qualified personnel, and we are pleased that Turkish youth are choosing a degree in the field of nuclear energy. We are looking forward to their active participation in the project to build the first nuclear power plant in Turkey.



Master programs for Turkish students


As part of implementation of the program of cooperation between the Russian Federation and the Republic of Turkey in the field of education and development of nuclear competencies, young specialists with a basic technical education no lower than the Bachelor degree are offered the opportunity to continue their studies in the field of nuclear technology under the master's program.


In 2019, the first enrollment of Turkish citizens for master's programs was held. In September this year, more than two dozen people are to begin training under the programs "Heat and Power Engineering" and "Power and Electrical Engineering" at St. Petersburg Polytechnic University. Upon successful completion of the master's program, graduates will receive job offers at the first nuclear power plant in the Republic of Turkey.


AKKUYU NUCLEAR JSC plans to continue recruiting bachelor degree graduates - Turkish young specialists - for master's programs. Please follow the updates on our website.
