You can access the online application form here: https://gradapp.ku.edu.tr/login.php
Please check carefully the relevant Graduate School website for detailed guidance on admission requirements, eligibility, minimum scores and application deadlines.
There is no need for a separate scholarship application. You only need to apply to the program(s) of your choice. Scholarship decisions are based on academic merit and not financial need. You can indicate in your Statement of Purpose if you are the recipient or eligible to one of our specific scholarship schemes.
The application process is free. There is no application fee (except for Master without Thesis programs in the Graduate School of Business)
If you run into any issues in doing this you can email the relevant Graduate School or email@example.com 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 not be able to upload any new documents or change any information.
You can only submit missing or additional documents (test scores, new referee contact details or other) by emailing them to the relevant Graduate School.
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 on Gradapp. 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.
Most international students require a student visa to study in Turkey. Our International Community Office (ICO) will provide all the necessary information to guide you through this process.
