For anyone looking for a new experience I would highly recommend working with Oxford as academy. Moving abroad has been one of the best decisions of my life. I have always been supported in every area of my working life in turkey. In many cases Armagan has gone above and beyond to assist me in whatever was needed. This is my second year teaching in Turkey and from the very beginning Armagan and Oxford has provided me with ongoing support. I am currently working in an amazing school, I have learned about a new culture and made many friends and memories that I will always cherish. Jacquelineireland@hotmail.comJacquelineCanada
I have been working with Oxford As Academy for almost 3 years. I can’t tell you how much of a big help Armagan has been for me during these years. It has been like having a family member here. I enjoyed every second of it because of his support. I will continue working with him and his team proudly next year as well. firstname.lastname@example.orgSindyItaly
I have been part of the Oxford As Academy family for three years and those three years have been amazing, each in their own way. The friends that I have made are friends for life and the memories we have shared will be treasured forever. When I first came to Turkey I was a little apprehensive, I was going to a small city, was risking it all and placing my trust in a man I had only spoke to on Skype. Everyday since I have realised that it was one of the best decisions I have ever made. Armagan has been fantastic and has supported me in my professional development as a teacher. I have a wonderful school and whilst at times it can be challenging I have learned so much from all of the children and the staff. Turkey is a great country and the lifestyle is amazing. If you have any hesitations about whether this is the company for you please feel free to contact me on email@example.comSarahEngland

I have been working for Oxford as Academy for two years.
Oxford are a team of friendly, helpful and dedicated teachers and staff.
My experience with Mr Armagan can only be described as professional and thorough.
My work permit was in place and ready for me to start work and my salary is always paid on time, sometimes earlier. Working in Turkey is not without some challenges, but any problems that may occur, someone is always on hand to assist you.
Turkey is a beautiful country and I feel privileged to be able to work here and call it my home.KarenEngland
My first experience as a foreign teacher was with Oxford as Academy. It was one of the most fantastic teaching experience in wonderful Turkey. Two weeks of fun with motivated children of Tavsanli. With my fellow teacher from Britain I had lots of fun and we worked well together to plan fun, educational lessons plans and activities. It was a memorable summer so I decided to go for it again in winter. This time I went to Darica, near Istanbul and I taught older children in secundary school. At first I was a bit afraid because I expected 10 to 12-year old kids but it ended up being a really enjoyable experience with lots of fun activities. I will come back again soon. Thank you Oxford as Academy for this opportunity.MaikelNetherlands
As a passionate English teacher in constant search for exciting teaching experiences outside the borders of my country (Argentina), I was fortunate enough to be given the chance to become part of the Oxford Academy as Academy team. We are a group of positive and extremely professional people. I have created lots of great memories. Both years I spent in Turkey were a bliss as I encountered no problem at work, I was treated fairly and respectfully and I had plenty of time outside the working hours to get to learn more about and enjoy life in Izmir. Thank you, Oxford Academy!Cecilia Argentina
Since I’ve started working with the Academy I haven’t had a single problems with them. Everything went according to plan – from the documentation part to the working and paycheck part. The whole process was short and simple without any delays. I’m extremely satisfied with Oxford as Academy. Every single paycheck was on time and I’m ready to continue working with them.SeadBosnia and Herzegovina

I got guidance and I a lot of help in adapting to a new and beautiful culture.The teachers of the school that I work with proved to be very helpful, warm and very friendly. I always got paid on time and they were never late in paying the monthly salaries. Happy to be here!MirunaRomania
I worked for Oxford As Academy three years ago. I moved from Izmir to Bursa . It was a fresh start for me and I moved as soon as I got the job without really thinking as I was looking for a new experience. Izmir was my comfort zone. Bursa was new to me I had no friends and of course no family. When I arrived there I really had no clue about what was going to happen. The first thing I noticed was that the staff were very welcoming and I really felt safe. After that my new adventure had started.
And now when I look back I guess I was lucky because I was treated well and I had a very nice experience . I learned a lot and I had also hard times but Mr Arman was a good support and I could overcome the problems I faced. All in all it was a good experience . I would recommend Oxford As Academy to anyone who is looking for a teaching position. Not to forget to mention that Turkey is an awesome country and the food is perfect the only problem is that if you come here you might gain lot of weight.BoutheinaTunisia
Oxford as Academy is easy to work with and seem to appreciate their workers. In Oxford as Academy English learners and teachers are creating a relaxed environment for learning and teaching is nothing but fun.TaiwoNigeria
Are you ready to discover an amazing culture, live in a beautiful country, meet with new people and teach english to wonderful kids…then come to Turkey, you will not regret! I’ve been working for Mr. Armagan for two years and I can say I’m really satisfied with the experience. Armagan is a trustworthy person always ready to help you when you need it. He arranged my work permit and supported me during this two years. Every single pay check was on time or even earlier. Oxford as Academy placed me in a great school in Bursa, with amazing staff and students! Coming to Turkey was the best decision I ever made, now i feel Turkey as my second home. I would highly recommend Oxford as Academy to anyone who is looking to teach abroad. Thank you very much Mr. Armagan for the opportunity. I am very thankful for being part of this family.NaomiSpain
I have just completed my first school year in Turkey, working as an English-language teacher with Oxford As Academy. I would recommend this recruitment agency for anyone who would like to begin a new adventure teaching English abroad, but may feel worried or concerned about finding work in a suitable school or finding their feet in a new country. Oxford As Academy organised all the paperwork before I came here, including my work permit and residence permit – and found a position for me in a lovely private school in the beautiful Turkish city of Antalya. Furthermore, Armagan has been there to offer help and support every step of the way – assisting with finding accommodation, and always sending on our wages promptly every month. I have loved my time in Antalya so far, and I have made some wonderful new friends from all over the world.AndreaIreland
Oxford as Academy changed my view of recruitment agencies. Before working with them, I had always been unlucky.
Oxford academy found me a great job, listened to all my worries and most of all my paycheck always comes right on time.AnitaNigeria
I think one of the most important aspects of working with Armagan and the Oxford AS Academy is the level of support you receive. It is so important to feel you are supported when working as a foreigner in a foreign country. The rules and regulations are often different to those we may understand or expect in the UK. Armagan and Oxford AS Academy are there to offer guidance and support which is informed, practical, immediate and ongoing.
At first I was not sure why it was necessary to have an intermediary when working in Turkey. I am so glad that this way of working has proved invaluable in sorting out the paper work from work permits to bank accounts. Its great to have someone who understands how things are, both in a Turkish shool and from my perspective as an English person working here.
I work hard in school, especially in communicating to students and getting the balance of learning right, in all the lessons. Armagan and the Oxford AS Academy team are aware that its important to us that we are paid on time and they ensure our salaries are paid punctually, which gives me peace of mind not having to worry about when I will be paid.
Also, knowing that Armagan and the Oxford AS Academy are in constant communication with the school allows them to understand how things are going – we get feedback from Armagan and the Oxford AS Academy so that we know everything is going well. This communication is important, especially when colleagues and managers in school are busy and may not have lots of time, I know Armagan will be keeping a watchful eye on things on my behalf. This open communication is beneficial in that I have built a good working relationship with Armagan and the Oxford AS Academy and I feel I am able to approach them about anything I am unsure of, or need advice on. Their experience and expertise in this field has been essential in helping me maintain good practice in my work with children in school.ClaudiaEngland
I was recruited as a Teacher of English by M.Armagan Burcu, Head Director of Oxford as Academy, to work in Turkey in 2013.
I taught students mainly at the Primary level. It was a great experience. Mr Burcu was very professional and competent in expediting the recruitment process – whether it meant the sending and receiving of relevant documents, providing the information concerning the educational institutions or clarifying any information.
I had a good rapport with Mr Burcu and the staff at Oxford as Academy, who have an ability to connect with the teachers and to give advice where necessary.
I was happy with their support during my stay in Turkey and I recommend this Institute to you without reservation.JudithHolland
If you’re serious about teaching English as a foreign language in Turkey and other European/Arabic countries, then Oxford Academy is the agency to associate yourself with. It is professionally run to a high standard. The staff are effective, helpful, well knowledgable in the visa and employment paper work. The have extensive knowledge of their subjects that the teachers possess. Oxford’s cultural emersion component is invaluable and the tips on living in and around the cities assigned are immensely helpful. Teaching english as a foreign language is demanding, however, the rewards of improved literacy and competence amoung students far exceed the work load.MillerBahamas
Oxford has been my home when I was homeless , I had no one and I was alone. No familly , no friends , they were my family , my happiness , my everything.

Hello Mr. Armagan. I wanted to say thank you for helping me find the job . I am very grateful to you and Oxford as academy for supporting me to get a job and find a house for me and my son. I am very happy and lucky to be in Corlu. Thanks oxford as academy.BeathanUK
I worked for Oxford as Academy for two years and can honestly say it was the best decision I’ve ever made. I was made to feel important and needed for the company and its success. I was respected and as it was the first time I worked abroad. I was reassured about any worries I might have had due to the fantastic relationship I had with my boss Armagan. I wholeheartedly recommend that you do decide to work for Oxford as Academy. I was paid on time and provide with more than I could have ever wished for. Like I said it was the best decision I ever made, I only regret that I left!!RossUK
I’m grateful working in Oxford as Academy. It gives me opportunity to work in a prestigious school and to experience foreign cultures.
I’m so very well pleased with the Oxford academy. It’s my first year and after gaining much educational experience I must say by far it is my best one! I am thankful to be part of this wonderful team.ChristinaUSA
My whole experience working in Turkey was incredible and it couldn’t have been that way without the help and guidance of Oxford as Academy. Working for Armagan has been a really good experience, he did his best to make me feel at home and I did so. I would without a doubt work for Oxford as Academy any time!AlexUK
Hi, Siobhan here from Ireland, I’m coming to the end of my first year with Oxford. I would highly recommend this company if you are looking to teach English abroad. Armagan worked for the well being of his employees, everything was organised very professionally including my school placement, work permit, residency permit, also helped with finding suitable accommodation. He was always there for you when needed, your monthly salary was paid promptly, which is a very reasonable rate as the cost of living here is very reasonable, or if you needed an advance of your salary it was not a problem. I have just signed my contract for another year with him as I know this is a company I can trust as living in a foreign country can be a bit stressful.SiobhanIreland
Working for Oxford AS Academy with Mr. Aramagan Burcu has been a great pleasure. He is very helpful, respectful, and professional. Mr. Aramagan is always there to assist you with anything you need regarding your working assignment. Teachers are placed in highly respected schools around Turkey as well as a few other countries such as Kuwait and Saudi Arabia. I can assure you that Oxford AS Academy operates 100% legally. Teachers are provided with the proper working permits and are always paid on time.
I have had nothing but positive experiences working for Mr. Aramagan and the school I have been placed in. My time has been enjoyable and I have built great relationships with my students and fellow teachers.
I would recommend Oxford AS Academy and Mr. Aramagan to anyone who is looking to teach in Turkey. It is an amazing place to teach!SharleenUSA
From the moment I arrived in Turkey I felt truly welcomed and cared for by Armağan and his team. The service and support provided by Oxford As Academy has gone above and beyond what I would ever have expected, in regards to both my working life and adjusting to living in a foreign country. I am now going into my 4th year with the company, and feel so lucky to be a valued part of the Oxford As Academy family and living in this beautiful country. email@example.comLauriceEngland
My name is Victor Marais and I have been with Oxford as Academy for almost 4 years now and that in itself should speak for itself. What I can say about this company is that they adhere to the contract as far as payment, housing, lessons and everything stated. They are also quite understanding when it comes to financial aid. The salary is acceptable and you won’t go hungry or fall short of basic needs and will enjoy a comfortable social life while in Turkey. Oxford has also helped me in certain personal situations and they are quite understanding when it comes down to it. I have always loved Turkey and Oxford has given me the opportunity to experience this country and its culture as a whole and for that I will be eternally grateful. What I also like about this company is that what you see is what you get and you do get paid the ammount that your contract stipulates. Of course there are always problems in life and in coming to a new country with a different culture and different language they can arise but I found that when it did I could contact Oxford and they would assist wherever possible. There is also a strict adherence to work, residence permits and medical coverage. It has been quite the experience thus far, one that I wouldn’t swop for the world . Thank you Oxford for everything you’ve done for me up to now and for this awesome experience!VictorSouth Africa
Armagan is very communicative throughout the term, and is very quick to help resolve any issues that may arise. As I’d read, and heard ALOT of horror stories whilst looking for a teaching contract, the main concern I had was payment – I needn’t have worried though, as I was always paid on time, and sometimes earlier when holidays were coming up. All in all, I feel like I landed on my feet with Oxford as Academy, and based on my personal experience I’d highly recommend them!
Feel free to send any prospective teachers my way if they have any questions. firstname.lastname@example.orgSamanthaUK
My name is Ramona Olalau and I’m an English teacher for eight years now.
I had the opportunity to work with Oxford as Academy under the guidance of Armagan Burcu.
Oxford as Academy is a professional institute where teachers from all over the world have the chance to use their teaching skills with Turkish students, and of course, the students have the chance to learn English from very well-prepared teachers.
For me it was a beautiful experience to be part of Oxford as Academy, to meet and work with special people as Armagan, who treats teachers in a professional way, but who is also a very hospitable person.
Thank you Oxford as Academy and thank you Armagan for being there for us!RomanaRomania
A few years ago I had the chance to work with Oxford as Academy as an English teacher. It was a quite enriching experience for me both professionally and personally. As a matter of fact, Oxford as Academy offered me the chance to meet interesting people from around the world and to discover both Turkey and the hospitability of its people.
Working with them went smoothly and whenever assistance was needed, the supervising team of Oxford as Academy was there to offer help and solve any problems. As I mentioned above I enjoyed my stay in Turkey and thanks to Oxford as Academy I had the chance to work with nice lovely people with whom I am still friends.AmiraTunisia

I’m fortunate to work for Oxford as Academy. The company has given me the opportunity to teach in wonderful schools in Turkey. I am thankful to Armagan Burcu, who is a considerate and helpful employer. He’s very informative and quick to answer any questions that I have.SylvieSouth Africa
I have been working with Armagan and his team for Oxford Academy for 9 months, and its been nothing but a breeze.
Its really scary and nerve wrecking to travel to a foreign country to work and to stay for one year, where you dont know anything or anyone. It’s hard to know what to expect or what will come your way. But Armagan has made everything so easy. He went out of his way to make sure everything is arranged perfectly.
He always made time even for the smallest request or question that I had.
He always made sure everything is well and that I had everything that I needed. My time working with Oxford as academy has been a delight!!Shani South Africa
I have worked in Izmir for this academic year and I have found this experience to be very rewarding. Armagan has been very helpful and has always been approachable if I had any questions. I would recommend working with Oxford to anyone interested in tefl teaching in Turkey.TomEngland
After one year of working for Oxford as Academy, I consider it a well organized agency. From the very beginning, the agency was quite clear about their working terms and conditions, and yet if I ever needed help with understanding or ensuring about any of the conditions, the responsible agent never hesitated to help. In terms of transportation and issues with curriculum or students, I had to contact my school as per to the contract. However when it came to any financial issues, I would contact the agency and they would do their best to resolve the problem. I was always given the salary on time. For the extra pay, I had to speak to my school authorities, for the agency was only responsible of my basic net salary. Teachers are also able to change the school or city in the new school year, depending on their personal preference. This ensures that the teachers feel comfortable in their place. That’s why, I strongly recommend Oxford as Academy if you are planning to teach in Turkey. As a foreigner, you will always find the assistance you need in terms of translation, or financial problems.MariamEgypt

I was able to prove my abilities as a teacher and work in very respectful and helpful environment. I hope for good cooperation next school yearMilenaPoland
I am happy to say that I have worked for Oxford As Academy during a summer camp teaching. It was one of the best summers in my so far life. Mr Armagan (the owner of OxfordAsAcademy) took really good care of us (the teachers). We did not have to worry about anything, we just had to teach. He took care of our food, transportation, entertainment, payment etc. Everything was spotless and I truly hope for another future corporation with Oxford As Academy.GeorgiaGreece
Mr. Armağan is a very helpful boss. He is always here to help. As long as you don’t hesitate to ask. He also puts you in a good school and he makes sure that you have all the necessary papers before you actually start working. If you have any problems,you can count on him.IllynPhilippines

Are you looking for a new adventure, new challenges, a different culture and new places to sightsee, then come to Turkey and work as an EFL teacher. Oxford as Academy offers a large selection of well equipped schools, warm hearted teachers and happy students. Schools are usually on walking distance from the accommodation, otherwise you can use the school bus. The monthly stipend will help you explore around. The company will provide assistance and that’s a necessary thing when you don’t speak the language. I strongly advise you to take this chance and you will never regret!AdrianaRomania
I’ve been working in Turkey with Oxford As Academy for about a year now. As expected with any new environment, settling in a new culture and work place can be quite daunting at first. This is where Armagan made the biggest contribution for me. From the very start, he has made sure to make this transition period as smooth and supportive as possible.
Taking care of the paperwork and financial support, respecting the teachers’ rights and needs, this agency has kept it’s word all the way through.
For anyone considering jumping in the world of ESL teaching and for those who want to test their skills in a new environment, Oxford As Academy is as good of a start as it gets.ElvijsLatvia
Working with Oxford as Academy contributed a major part of success to my teaching career. It created a path to my greater achievement in Turkey. As long as I live, Oxford as Academy will always be my family.CliftonNigeria
Oxford Academy has placed me in some great schools with amazing staff and students! I’ve met some amazing people I’ve also never had a problem with my work visa or with getting paid on time.KarenCanada
I have been working for Oxford Academy for 2 years. I am really so happy and satisfied to be teacher for this company since it is so much reliable, respectful, generous and sympathetic. Whenever I have any problem or question, I can calmly share everything with this Company since it suddenly tries to help and do the best for me.
The company is always behind the teachers and always stands up for them. The company respects us and always tries to defend our rights. However I am foreign in Turkey, with this Company I never feel myself alone. It understands all circumstances, for example if I am ill, if I would like to celebrate my most important holiday, if I would like to fly back home to see my family for few days, I can calmly ask favor from them, they understand me. So briefly, I really feel myself so lucky to work for Armagan Bey and his Oxford Academy Company. I can say just good opinion about them since I really haven’t had any bad experience with them.AgnesHungary

Oxford As Academy was a very enjoyable experience. I was well looked after by staff and made to feel very welcomed to Turkey. The children were lovely and keen to learn. I have beautiful memories which will stay with me for a very long time. A rewarding experience for English teachers and a great way to explore an interesting countryLeoniEngland
I’ve been working with Oxford as Academy for two years. I was pleased to be part of this organisation and have no complaints. The salary is paid on time. You don’t have to worry about the work papers. Everything is taken care of by the organisation. In addition, it’s made sure that any concerns or kinds of issues you may have during the school year are solved.AfefTunisia
Oxford AS Academy provides all services that a teacher needs in order to get their job done in a foreign climate. Teaching abroad can at times be challenging in particular when you don’t speak the language. Oxford AS Academy goes the extra mile in terms of conditioning their teacher to the culture, from assisting where the native language is needed to communicate, to covering all the essential red tape. Salary was always on time, and management were very responsive to questions often in person as opposed to just over the Internet or phone. From my vantage point I saw that the organisation is working with very professional schools too. I hope to work through them again in the future.MagdelanaPoland
As a teacher, having worked with few institutions in Turkey, I’m indeed proud to say Oxford As Academy is the institution that has won my heart the most. If I had my way, I would sincerely love to work with you again. But even outside that, I will still continue to cherish the time spent with you. Million thanks.DomonicSouth Africa
