Is it possible to study at a university without a high school diploma in Turkey?

Foreign students cannot enroll in public or private Turkish universities without obtaining a high school diploma, as it is one of the basic conditions for university study, in addition to some personal documents such as a passport or a copy of a residence permit.

Here, many students ask about how to enroll in Turkish universities without a high school diploma, and in response to these questions, the education consultants on the Aldirasa Platform say: in the absence of a high school diploma, foreign students can enroll in Turkish universities by taking the YOS exam and obtaining a good rate in order to continue Bachelor's degree in Turkish universities.

Is it possible to study university in Turkey without a YOS certificate?

Many public universities in Turkey require students to obtain a YOS certificate in order to study in their various colleges and majors at the undergraduate level, and university admission criteria differ from one college to another.

However, the YÖS certificate is not a prerequisite for enrollment in private universities in Turkey, and it can be dispensed with when submitting papers. Rather, many of these private universities are satisfied with the secondary certificate only.

Majors that can be studied without a YOS certificate

Entering the YOS exam is a prerequisite set by the Higher Education Institutions in Turkey for the first time in 1981 for foreign students when enrolling in public universities. It was organized annually in all universities under the supervision of the Turkish Higher Education Institution.

However, with the change of decisions and the public universities gaining a kind of independence in management, each university began to organize the YOS exam independently from the other, and with regard to private universities, it is possible to choose the appropriate university major and study it without entering the YOS exam.
