Erasmus Program plays a vital role for internationalization of Turkish higher education Although the number of students and staff participating in this Program has been increasing; this increase in the quantity may not directly result in an increase in quality. 129 staff working in international offices of Turkish universities representing various geographical locations of Turkey participated in the study. The results of the survey revealed that most universities in Turkey include internationalization in their strategic plan as one of the priorities and officers believe in positive impacts of student and staff mobility of Erasmus Program on the internationalization of their universities. On the other side, the same officers stated that administrative support given to their offices is not sufficient. Moreover, the results of T-test conducted between state and foundation universities revealed that foundation university staff is more content from their institutional and administrative conditions.
