General Admission Requirements

Admission to undergraduate programs is carried out in accordance with the regulations determined by the University Senate within the framework of the Higher Education Act 2547 dated 4 November 1981 and of the regulations and decisions of the Higher Education Council. In order to gain admission to an associate (2-year, short cycle) or undergraduate program (4-year, first cycle) in a higher education institution, Turkish students have to take a university entrance exam administered by Student Selection and Placement Center (ÖSYM). The examination consists of two stages.

For International Students

ÖSYM has abolished ‘‘Examination for International Students (YÖS)’’ since 2010-2011 education period. Universities have the right for selection of foreign students. The admission criteria have to be approved by Higher Education Council of Turkey (YÖK). 

The international candidates may apply to graduate studies at master or doctorate levels. Applications to graduate programs are processed by Graduate Schools. There are minimum requirements for application to different departments.
