Approval of applications by the Graduate Schools will be made within the application calendar. Once your application is approved by the relevant Institute, no changes can be made to the application.

In order for international candidates to apply to programs whose language of instruction is Turkish, they must upload their C1 level TÖMER certificates obtained from TÖMER/Language centers of state universities in Turkey or Yunus Emre Institute to the system. The validity period of TÖMER certificates is 2 years. However, foreign candidates who have Bachelor's degree and/or master's degrees from programs of universities in Turkey whose language of instruction is Turkish are exempt from the TÖMER C1 certificate. International candidates in this situation must complete their applications by attaching their e-government (e-devlet) graduation certificate instead of the TÖMER C1 certificate.
A maximum of 2 choices can be made for graduate programs. For doctoral programs, a maximum of 1 preference can be made. The order of preference is important in the choices made!!!
ALES and Foreign Language requirements are not required for applications and registrations to our Non-Thesis Master's Programs. Success ranking will be done according to Undergraduate CGPA.
In accordance with the Senate Principles of YTU Graduate Education and Training Regulation, there is no Foreign Language Requirement in the application and evaluation processes for master's programs whose medium of instruction is Turkish.
