Report claims Turkish universities need 45,000 more academics - CİHAN: "According to the report, there were only 26,626 university students enrolled in distance courses at Anadolu University in 1982, but this figure jumped to 250,000 in 1990, further rising to 620,000 in 1995. While the ratio of the distance university students fell from 40 percent of the total number of university students to 24 percent in 2014, its share of the total number of students has steadily increased due to Law No. 6111 on Higher Education in 2011 which removed limitations to the number of distance university students. However, the fact that there are over 1 million students who have registered and then failed to start a course, or whose registration is frozen, are also counted in the system, indicates an immediate need for a change in this area.
