This study examines determinants of university choice in Turkey using school level data. Regression results show that tuition, the population of the city in which the university is located, academic performance of the university and language of instruction are important determinants of university choice. The results also reveal that the impact of tuition is higher for public university students, while private university students care more about academic performance than do their counterparts in public universities.
