Preparatory Programmes

International students, who are eligible to enrol a Turkish-medium department, take the Turkish proficiency exam administered by BU-TÖMER of our University. Those who succeed in the exam will be exempt from compulsory Turkish courses, and be able to begin their studies. Those who do not succeed in the Turkish proficiency exam, and who have inadequate Turkish skills will attend Turkish preparatory class for a year.

For detailed information on BU-TOMER please click here.

Students who will enrol the Faculty of Medicine or Dentistry must achieve a score at minimum C1 level in a Turkish proficiency exam held by an examination centre accredited by TÖMER or the (YÖK) Council of Higher Education before they proceed to their undergraduate studies. Those who will enrol other Turkish-medium departments must achieve a score at minimum B2 level to proceed to their undergraduate studies. Turkish Proficiency Certificate is not required for students who have completed at least the three years of their secondary education in institutions which offer Turkish-medium education in Turkey.

Students who enrol at departments where medium of instruction is fully or 30% English will attend a 1-year compulsory Preparatory Programme. In the Department of Translation and Interpreting Studies in Russian, the medium of instruction is Russian and a 1-year Russian Preparatory Programme is compulsory. International students admissible to departments where medium of instruction is English will sit for an English Placement Test. Those who pass the Test will proceed to their Departments while the others will attend a 1-year English Preparatory Programme.

Below are the tests equivalent to the Placement Test and the Minimum Scores required.
