The aim of this study is to reveal the changes to the adaptation process for Syrian refugees over the years and to determine their future expectations. The study represents a quantitative research effort in which the survey model was used. In this study, the integration and future expectations of Syrian refugees were examined comparatively for two samples showing similar characteristics in two different time periods. The research is descriptive in order to understand and make sense of the change in Syrian refugees' adaptation, and their future expectations. The study sample consists of 178 Syrian refugees living in Mardin, Turkey since 2013. It was determined that the majority did not have difficulties adapting to Mardin, Turkey and there has been a negative change in their adaptation status over the years. The main result of the study with regard to future expectations is that the majority of the participants complained about the "uncertainty" they experienced, let alone drawing a positive picture of what kind of future awaits them. It has also been determined that this uncertainty has increased compared to 2014. The present study is valuable in that it reveals various results within a relational analysis model.
