At least 6,100 French students chose to come to Turkey through the Erasmus exchange program over the last 14 years, said France's consul general in Istanbul.

The French Consulate in Istanbul on Wednesday arranged the third "Erasmus Istanbul" event with the participation of around 200 students at the French Palace in Beyoğlu.

Speaking at the event, Consul General Bertrand Buchwalter said the number of Turkish students who preferred France for the Erasmus program was over 7,000 in the same period. Erasmus was founded in 1987 as a European Union student exchange program and later turned into Erasmus+, which is a program to support education, training, youth and sports in Europe.
