With the emergence of migrations recently, different cultures has started to live together. This has led to the emergence of different concepts such as multiculturalism, interculturality and culturally responsiveness. When these concepts are examined, it is seen that there are some similarities and differences between them. The aim of this study is to examine the concepts of multiculturalism, interculturality and culturally responsiveness and to reveal the differences among them by considering these concepts in terms of education. Conceptual survey model was used in the research. When the concepts are considered from Turkey's point of view, minorities in Turkey prefer living together with the local culture to gathering in a particular area. Therefore, there is an intercultural interaction. In this regard, it can be said that for Turkey not the concept of multiculturalism but the concept of interculturalism is more appropriate. To make the students having quite different cultures in Turkey be equipped with high level skills, have universal values, be understanding and respectful to differences, culturally responsive education policies must be developed and applied. As a result, when multicultural structures are considered together, it is possible to say that there is a need for culturally responsive education in terms of struggling against inequality, discrimination, othering; social integration and creating awareness of integration among students
