The UK government has launched its ‘Great’ campaign in Turkey by bringing the famous and iconic ‘London Double-decker Bus’ to the cities of Turkey.

For one month the double-decker bus will tour 7 cities in Turkey and offer information about UK education, UK life / culture, visa and business opportunities.

The aim of the tour is to improve political and cultural relations between the two countries and during this month British Council representatives will visit local governments, city centers and universities in Istanbul, Bursa, Izmir, Ankara, Eskisehir, Adana and Kayseri.

GREAT Bus visitors can gain information from British Council representatives whilst enjoying a free cup of tea. They will also have the opportunity to win prizes and enter competitions during the visit.
