The awards were presented in a special ceremony and dinner at the Elite World Prestige Hotel in Istanbul, where member agencies, the winners and other invited guests were welcomed by Eren Goker, UED President, and the guest of honour Reuben Gauci, Consul General of the Republic of Malta.

“The awards were established in order to determine and reward the language schools who give the best service to Turkish students and study abroad agencies,” said UED in a statement. The UED awards were inaugurated in 2013.

EC English was the recipient of two awards in the English Language School categories for the UK and Malta, while Embassy English collected this year’s award for Chain language school.

In the other regional English language schools categories: ELS Language Centers collected the USA award; ILAC International Language Academy of Canada won the Canada award; Australian Institute of Professional Education (AIPE) was victorious for Australia, and Atlas Language School claimed the Ireland award.

In the categories for other languages, there were awards for: French in Normandy (French Language School), did deutsch-institut (German), Linguaviva (Italian) and Enforex (Spanish). The awards for Summer School of Year went to Studio Cambridge (English), Humboldt-Institut (German) and Centre International D’Antibes (French).

The Insurance Company of the Year international category was won by guard.me, while Turkish Airlines collected the award for Airline of the Year.

The UED awards are the first of their kind focussed on the Turkish market, and the winners are decided by votes from the executives UED’s 42 member agencies.

As previously reported, Goker presented UED data and trends at the inaugural Felca member presentation in London in August, when he indicated that the Turkish market had a challenging start to 2014, fuelled by currency exchange levels, with around a 15 per cent decline in student numbers expected, compared with a favourable 2013 in which UED members reported strong growth.
