We welcome students from Turkey!
If you have completed secondary education in Turkey you will need to complete a Foundation Year to be eligible for admission into an undergraduate degree in the UK. For information about the International Foundation Year, please see the International Study Centre website.
Undergraduate (Bachelors) degrees
- If you are studying A-Levels or the International Baccalaureate (IB) you may be considered for entry into the first year of a Bachelors degree. Please see individual course pages for entry requirements.
- If you have already completed the first year of an undergraduate degree at a Turkish university, you may be considered for entry into the first year of a Bachelors degree if you have studied relevant subjects.
For more information about available degrees please see individual course pages.
Postgraduate (Masters) degrees
If you hold a Bachelors degree with a GPA of 2.9/4.0 or 3.5/5.0, or an upper second class honours degree, from a recognised university you will be considered for entry to a Masters degree (depending on the subject you wish to study).
For more information about available degrees please individual course pages.
PhDs and other research degrees
To apply for a PhD (or other postgraduate research qualification, such as MPhil, DClinPsy, DSocSci, EdD or MD) you must have an undergraduate (Bachelors) degree from a recognised Turkish university, usually in a related subject area, with an approximate GPA of 2.9/4.0 or 3.5/5.0 (depending on the subject you wish to study) which is equivalent to a UK Upper Second Class Honours degree (also known as a 2:1).
You must also be able to demonstrate practical knowledge of appropriate research methodologies. Research degrees are demanding and intensive: to succeed at this level you must be highly motivated, be able to work independently, and have an appropriate familiarity with the discipline and its associated research techniques/methodologies.
Where a Masters degree is required, this is indicated in the relevant description on our Postgraduate Research webpages, together with further information about requirement.
