If you run into any issues in completing or submitting your online application you can email the relevant Graduate School or firstname.lastname@example.org for technical assistance:
Some programs are open for admission only in the Fall term and others on both Spring and Fall terms so you might not see a specific program listed on the online application system during the Spring application period.
Make sure you keep track of the different application deadlines and other key dates (when to expect a decision, shortlist period, etc)
Once you have submitted your application you will be able to upload only missing test scores in case they were not available when you submitted the application.
If there are any technical problems with your application you can always email the relevant Graduate School.
You can check the status of your application online. Please allow between 1- 2 months from the application deadline date until you hear from the administrators at the relevant Graduate School.
The relevant Graduate School will get in touch with shortlisted candidates by email to schedule an interview or written exam (depending on the graduate program).
Make sure you reply quickly to their emails to make sure a possible admission offer is made earlier.
If within this period you are considering one or more offers from other Graduate Schools and would like to know the decision from the Graduate School please contact them and not the faculty member.
If it has been 3 months or more since you applied and you have not received an email from the Graduate School with a full or conditional offer please assume you have not been successful on this application round.
If your application is successful you will be sent an admission offer by the relevant Graduate School which will outline any conditions you must meet.
Please read your offer letter carefully before accepting.
The earlier you let them know of your decision the better they will be able to help you in arranging your registration, accommodation, visa, and other administrative procedures.
Some international students may require a student visa to enter Turkey. Our International Community Office (ICO) will provide all the necessary information to guide you through this process.
