The aim of this study is to determine discrimination perceptions of immigrants of Turkish origin living in Holland regarding the basic education applications. In the analysis of the obtained data, 310 people living in Holland were reached and the statistical techniques as arithmetic average, standard deviation, independent samples t test and one way ANOVA for dependent/repeated measures were obtained. According to the survey results, it is determined that discrimination perceptions of the participants regarding all topics (gender, race, color, mother tongue, economic condition, political view, social origin and family) are generally medium-level and under it, discrimination perception based on religious belief is much higher compared to other areas, and Turkish people who are not citizens of Holland have much more discrimination perception than the ones having the right of Holland citizenship.
