2. For International Students
a. Admission to Associate and Undergraduate Degree Programs
International students who are high school or university graduates and students in their final year of high schools can directly apply to our university to enroll in associate and undergraduate degree programs.
b. Master's and Doctorate Programmes
Applicants who receive scholarships from the government of the Republic of Turkey or their own governments and those who are citizens of other countries applying for admission to graduate programs according to bilateral agreements or individually are admitted with the decision of the administrative board of the institute by the evaluation of their BA points without being given an additional exam. If these students are willing to study in programs where the medium of instruction is English, they may be granted exemption from the English proficiency exam with the decision of the administrative board of the institute provided that they document their TOEFL or equivalent test scores. When deemed necessary, an exam is given in order to assess their level of language and scientific knowledge and a special program is offered for those who lack the required level thereof. Those students should pay the tuition fee determined each year by the Board of Trustees in order to enroll in the related graduate program.
- The Admission requirements of the graduate programs for applicants who are Turkish citizens residing abroad or citizens of other countries are determined at the beginning of each academic year with the decision of the Board of Trustees after being approved by the University Executive Board upon the advice of the heads of departments and the suggestion of the administrative board of the institute.
- The principles and procedures to be applied in the admission of applicants who are Turkish citizens residing abroad or citizens of other countries are as follows:
- Applicants should receive a minimum standard score of 55 in ALES or the equivalent minimum GMAT/GRE score determined by YÖK (Yüksek Öğretim Kurulu - Council of Higher Education); those applying for admission to PhD programs with BA degrees should receive a minimum standard score of 70 in ALES or GMAT/GRE score determined by YÖK.
- Applicants who are citizens of other countries should receive a minimum score of 55 on the Inter-University Foreign Language Examination (ÜDS) in English, French or German or its equivalent in a foreign language test accepted by the Inter-University Board.
- Applicants who are citizens of other countries should pass the TÖMER (Language Studies Center of Ankara University) proficiency exam in Turkish and foreign language proficiency exam.
- Of the applicants from Turkey or Turkic countries residing in Turkic countries, Asia and Balkans applying for admission to MA or PhD programs, those who receive scholarships from the government of the Republic of Turkey or their own governments or who apply in cases whereby there is a provision in bilateral agreements or individually, are admitted with the decision of the administrative board of the institute by the evaluation of their BA and, if available, MA points without being given an additional exam. When deemed necessary, an exam is given in order to assess their level of language and knowledge and additional educational support is provided for those who lack the required level thereof. The exam jury consists of three full members and one alternate member. Students receiving scholarships should take the ALES exam, however they are not subject to the minimum score rule applied to Turkish students and they are placed at the University based on the assessment of their ALES score.
