Turkish Students

The registration, examinations and evaluation procedures in Ege University are carried out according to Higher Education Law and Regulations put by Higher Education Council (YÖK).

In order to gain admission to an associate (2-year, short cycle) or undergraduate program (4-year, first cycle) in a higher education institution in Turkey, students have to take a university entrance exam administered by Student Selection and Placement Center (ÖSYM). The examination consists of two stages. First stage is the Higher Education Entrance Exam (YGS). Students need to get a minimum score to enter the second exam called Bachelor Placement Exam (LYS). Students attend related session according to their study field. The placement into most of the first cycle degree programs is made by ÖSYM based on the scores students obtained from the exam and their grade point averages (GPA) of secondary education (high school in Turkish Education System).

The placement of the students who want to study in an associate programme is based on the scores from YGS. An exception, however, is recognized, by law, for vocational high school graduates to apply for placement in two-year vocational school programs which are compatible with their high school majors, without an entrance examination. These students are placed centrally by ÖSYM according to the type of vocational high schools they graduated and their grade point averages (GPA).

Students willing to enroll in School of Physical Education and Sports, School of State Turkish Music Conservatory have to take aptitude test as defined by the University's Senate with the related Boards' opinions. For such programs, the YGS is also a prerequisite for placement. The final list of students is decided by adding up a pre-determined percentage of the YGS score and the local exam (aptitude test).

To study in the graduate programs, the students are required to take an exam called “ALES” (Academic Personnel and Graduate Education Exam), which is also administered by ÖSYM, and submit this score with their application. GRE or GMAT can also be a substitute of ALES. The applicants have to meet additional program requirements defined by the academic units.
