The aim was to determine the Ottoman Turks image of Egyptian secondary school third grade students. Descriptive scanning model out of quantitative research procedures was used in the research and within this scope general scanning model was used.

Convenience/accidental sampling method was preferred while choosing sample out of the universe of the research. Third grade students who studied in a village secondary school and had their last lessons in Egypt form the sample group. The scale which was developed by the researcher was used as data collection tool in the research.
