Study in Turkey


Scholarship of the Republic of Turkey

 UPDATE (FEBRUARY 2016)

THE APPLICATIONS FOR 2016/2017 WILL START AT THE END OF FEBRUARY.

In last years I benefited from different types of scholarship offered by Republic of Turkey. The Republic of Turkey every year offers different possibilities to obtain scholarship. All scholarship information can be obtained from the oficial page of Turkish scholarship, called Türkiye bursları

Every year there are some changes related to application period or type of scholarships in the scope of Turkiye Burslari. One of the most important changes this year (2015) is the Araştırma burs programı (Research Scholarship Programme) and the Sanat ve Spor Burs Programi (Art and Sport scholarship programme). The application for the Research Scholarships is opened all over the year. The requirements are a bit different than for other scholarships, for example the candidate must find and be accepted at an university in Turkey, where he/she wants to conduct a research.

DON'T MISS ALSO STUDY IN TURKEY #2 and STUDY IN TURKEY #3
You are welcome to comment and sharte the posts!





I have experience with scholarship which covers summer course of Turkish (part of so called Yunus Emre Turkish Language Scholarship Programme) and graduate scholarship programme in the scope of Ibni Haldun Social Sciences Graduate Scholarship (for MA and phD. Apart from the mentioned programms, they offer also undergraduate scholarships, short term scholarships and research scholarship. You can get most informations and the important OFFICAL DATES and OFFICIAL APPLICATION REQUIREMENTS on the official page of Türkiye Scholarship /Burslari. Also there exists useful (official) Facebook page of Türkiye burslari.



In this post I will present following scholarships:
  • Turkish language summer course scholarship (Yunus Emre Programme)
  • Graduate Scholarship programme (Ali Kuşçu Science and Technology and Ibni Haldun Social Sciences Programme)
  • Undergraduate Scholarship programme (divides in 7 subgrups - depending on the region of applicant)
  • Support Scholarship (Destek Bursu)
  • Success Scholarship programme (Başarı Burs Programı) 
  • Research Scholarship programme (Araştırma Burs Programı) - NEW!
  • Other scholarship opportunities
Before you continue reading, please don't forget that this blog is NOT an OFFICIAL page of Türkiye burslari, it's only sharing experience and advices for obtaining scholarship and what happens after arrival in Turkey. For official DATES; APPLICATION REQUIREMENTS  and APPLICATIONS, please check the official page of Türkiye burslari.

If anyone had different experience or find some information incorrect, feel free to post a comment under a blog post. If you have any questions, please do not send me private message, but post a comment under a blog post, so that everyone can see it. Thank you :) Now, let's start:

*Note:* The application for most scholarship programmes is via the official web page of Türkiye burslari. The application dates for different kind od scholarship are different. In 2013 the important months were:
  • MARCH (for Master and PhD Scholarship)
  • MAY (for undergraduate scholarship)
  • MAY (for Turkish language summer school)
On the official page of Turkiye burslari, the beginning ofapplication period for 2014 is announced:

  • 3 March for postgraduate scholarships
  • Mid April- Mid May for undergraduate scholarships
Applications for the Research Scholarship are open all year around.

Some informations about scholarships are also published in the web pages of Turkish embassies.

Some other important rules:
  • These are government scholarships and not university scholarships: you don't apply to desired university first and than ask for scholarship. When you will fill in the application form for scholarship, there will also be a part where you need to choose desired university and departement
  • applicant must not hold turkish citizenship
  • age (depends on level of studies)
  • average grade (Undergraduate: 70%; Postgraduate: 75%, Medicine students: 90%)
  • number of applicants depend from country to country
  • in case that you win scholarship and you don't know Turkish (you need to have level C1), you will go to Turkish language course for 1 year (or less, depending on your level) and than you can start your university education
In recent years the number of applicants for each scholarship is high, so I advice you to be PATIENT :) The results for scholarship might come very late, especiall for summer scholarship- even less than 2 weeks before the beginning of the course, so you must be prepeared to travel at any time :)

Turkish language summer school

Since 2013 language school is opened for students which has at least basic knowledge of Turkish language. School lasts approximately 2 months (July & August). Classes are every week day - 4 hours per day. Scholarship covers Turkish language education, student dormitory and you get some pocket money (in 2013 it was 500tl per month). Student must pay flight ticket or a transportation fee from their country to Turkey, books for course and other expenses (f.e.: fees you need to pay to get student certificate from your school, etc.)

When I received this scholarship, we could choose the city, where we want to learn Turkish (they offered us around 6 cities), on the official page of 2013 scholarship I haven't seen this option, but it might have been in the application page (it's closed now, so I can't check).

The application process is quite easy. In some countries Turkish embassies also invite you to an interview.


Please note that for 2014 applications dates might be different.

Graduate scholarship (MA, phD)

The application for this scholarship is little more complicated, it actually takes some hours. I advice you that you scan all of the documents you need (if I recall correctly, they only accept scanned document in .jpg or .doc format). The application has also a part where you need to write your motivation for scholarship. Recommendation letters are not necessery but can be an advantage.

At the postgraduate level you can choose maximum 12 universities and minimum 3 universities and departements. So before you apply for the scholarship, check web pages of more universities and their programmes, because, as it's written on the official page of Turkiye burslari ''selecting more cities might increase your chance to get scholarship''.

The application for the scholarship opens online (on the official page). Before you do it, read instructions carefully. Don't wait until last day, because last year there were some techincal problems on the page, and in that case you might not be able to send your application. If you have some problems when applying, you can get assistance from Turkiye burslari.




After applying (which was in 2013 in March), we waited almost 2 months for the ressults of first assesement. If your application is good enough, the Turkish Embassy from your country will call you for an interview. The interview dates depend from country to country. Mine was at the end of May. After interview there comes again waiting period. The final results were released at the end of June, however, at that time we only got to know, if we received scholarship. The news about university we won came in the late July/ early August.

After the results we had to bring original papers (the one we already attached with our application in March) to the Turkish Embassy in our country. To be able to sign a contract I needed the copy of passport, graduaton paper (it doesn't need to be original), health report and the paper that Türkiye burslari sent me, which prooved that I won scholarship. The Türkiye burslari group also send a scholarship contract to our embassy. We had about 2 weeks to go to embassy, bring all papers (in English or Turkish) and sign the contract. At the same time also the procedure for student visa started.

Some embassies don't have many experience with scholarship, so my advice is, to read the rules (sent to you by Türkiye burslari comitee) carefully and also take one copy with you to the embassy. Sometimes they receive the scholarship contract little late, so be patient. If you won scholarship, probably you will visit the embassy few times, before you will arrange everything.






After this step, again come waiting and patience. Now you only need to wait, that scholarship team sends you flight ticket. For us it was kind od surprise, because nobody really knew, when will we travel to Turkey. Finally, we travelled to Turkey in second half of September and some even in first half of October. The scholarship team bought us ticket from the closes aiport (where Turkish airlines flies). Some students had to buy conecting flights in case that Turkish airlines doesn't fly to their country. They had to buy it on their own, but latter they reimbursed this money to them (this latter means few months later, so don't rely on getting that money soon).

For more information about the selection and interview process check Study in Turkey#2.

Undergraduate scholarship

The application and assesement process is similar to the one described above. The important difference is the time for application, which was in 2013 in May, however, check the official page of Türkiye burslari for the application dates in 2014.

Other important difference is, that undergraduate students to be must choose 12 different universities where they want to study and olny 6 of this universities can be located in Istanbul, Ankara or Izmir. This means, if you will win a scholarship maybe you will not be placed in one of the big cities.






If you have any questions please ask it in a comment under this post.
If you have an experience with this scholarship programme which you would like to share with others, you are welcome to do so in a comment part.
If you find any mistake, please let me know.

For more information about the selection and interview process check Study in Turkey#2.

Support and Success Scholarship programme


This two scholarship programmes are a bit different than others. The aim of this two programmes is to support the foreign students which are already studying in Turkey, but on their own expenses. The scholarship programmes are opened to candidates from all countries and for all levels of study.

Research Scholarship Programme

This is a new programme. The main difference is that the applications are opened all year around and the scholarship is significantly higher. You can apply only if you are a PhD student or a PhD holder. You have to present them your research project. There are some suggested research fields for 2016/2017 applicants. You can see the details here.

Other Scholarship opportunities


Every year more and more students apply for Turkiye burslari, that's why it's getting harder and harder to win a scholarship. Don't worry, there are other opportunities too!

One of them is TÜBITAK.

Tübitak is currently not accepting any new (foreign) applicants. In any case, check their page for more recent news.

If you have chosen your university, than check if the university itself also offers scholarship for its students. Many universities do offer scholarship. Sometimes sholarship doesnt cover 100% of tuition fee.

Also check if your home country is offering a scholarship for studying abroad.

Good luck!

And please share this post, if you think that it's helpful :) Thank you!

I've received question about Turkish language education (for MA, phD and undergraduate scholarship): If you win scholarship and don't know Turkish, in first year you will only learn Turkish and after first year you will study your university education.

Ksenia said...

Great post, Spela!!! Hope you r enjoying your studies :)
I'm also going to apply for MA this spring, so could you share more tips and advice that may help in winning the scholarship? Anyway im looking forward your new posts :)
And as for Yunus Emre Scholarship it seems to change a lot since 2012. Now students live in campuses and aren't allowed to leave them without special permission. Instead they're provided with arranged excursions to diffrent cities. well seems a bit strange to me, eh watever we were lucky to win it that time!!
Basarilar and bol bol opusler sana!!!

Spelayla G. said...

Thank you Ksenia! I knew that for summer scholarship things changed, but I didn't know that so much!
For MA scholarship I advice you that before the application will be opened you choose more universities- which offers MA programme that you like. The list of all universities is published on the official scholarship page, but I think that most universities participates, just (as I noticed when applying) maybe not all the programmes of all the universities are erigible for scholarship). Also when you'll be applying you need to choose 12 options and not all universities are alloved to be in Istanbul, Ankara, Antalya.
Besides high average grade, I think also good motivation letter counts- so you must be convincing why you want to study in Turkey and not in other country. Also if you did some volunteering job or have some (professional) experience in your field I think it counts.
Good luck!

Ahmed Shahzad said...

Hi,
I got acceptance letter from Bahcesehir University in MBA Program, Do I have to wait till March to apply for the scholarship. BAU itself doesnt offer any sort of scholarship.

Spelayla G. said...

Hi Ahmed!
You need to wait until the application is opened, so in March. When you'll apply for scholarship you will also need to choose university where you want to study. If you will win scholarship you might not get the placement in BAU university but other. And (if you don't know Turkish) you will study Turkish during 1 year and than in Sept. 2015 you will start university.
If you really want to study in this university, maybe you can try applying TüBITAK scholarship.

Amal Rouis said...

Thank you for the details , I want to know if i should translate my papers to english or turkish for the application . thank you.

Spelayla G. said...

Hello Amal,
For the application you will need to translate papers in English or Turkish. Also you will need to fill out the application form in English or Turkish.
If you will be selected they will tell you, which papers you need to translate to Turkish and bring to Turkey with you. This year we had to bring with us the translation of passport, transcript of all the exams we passed, diploma or a paper which confirms you graduated (for MA and phD) and a medical report.

Amal Rouis said...

Thank you very much for clarifying .

Spelayla G. said...

No problem. If you will have more questions further on, fell free to ask. Before the applicaiton starts in March I will also update this post with more info about application and later on about interview and procedures which follow.
Good luck!

Anonymous said...

Hello friends,
This year I started to study in Turkey as a foreign student. My question is if I apply for the scholarship will my application be accepted? I want to study medicine but now I am studying another specialisation.
I would be glad if you help me :)

Spelayla G. said...

Hey :)

As far as I know you can apply- if you want to study in other field than now. If you want to win scholarship for a field you are already studying now than I recommend you to try a Tübitak scholarships.
In any case, for further rules, please check the official page of Turkiye burslari.
Good luck!

Spelayla G. said...

Hey guys!
On the official page of Turkiye burslari, they have published that the scholarship application months will be same as last year: March (MA and PhD) and May :)

Spelayla G. said...

Post is updated and also 2014 application dates are anounced.

Akalah Fabrice said...

Hello !
First, I want to thank you for all these important informations you've posted. Here is my question : Is that possible to apply for two degree of scholarship; I mean, apply in march for graduate and apply in may for undergraduate? In fact, I want to apply for graduate in law and undergraduate in economics. Is that possible?

Spelayla G. said...

Hey!
I think it is not possible,because you can only create one account and with this account, once you apply for graduate you will probably not able to apply for undergrad later. But to be sure 100% please check official page or send scholarship team an email.

Akalah Fabrice said...

ok thanks ! I don't want to miss these scholarship this year, so I must choose I think...So according to you, where is there a better chance to win a scholarship between undergraduate degree and a graduate degree?

Spelayla G. said...

No problem. I think you must read conditions again and than write good letter of motivation. I don't know where do you have better chance to win scholarship, I am not part to scholarship comittee. Good luck!

Anonymous said...

When you must start the paperwork: when they tell you if they give you the scholarship, or when you learn your university?

Spelayla G. said...

When they tell you so. For us it was at the same time as the informed us about university. But don't worry, they will inform you.

Anonymous said...

The documents you upload when you apply the scholarship must be i english? And this translation of your documents must be a authorized translation or you can make your own translation? Because people told me that a official and authorized transcription is very expensive.

Spelayla G. said...

Documents must be in English or Turkish (I am not sure, if they accept other language).You cannot translate documents by yourself. But I think in this first step, you don't need your translation veryfied by notary (this is more expensive).Ask your university if they can give you original papers in English.

Anonymous said...

Information for everybody who could be interested in: I called embassy and they told me we don't need to translate our documents. We just need to upload original documents without translation. Couple of years ago you needed to translate all required documents but now they changed the rules :)

Spelayla G. said...

Hey! Thanks for this information! Last year we still needed to translate documents. Anyway, if you will win the scholarship, you will need to translate some documents later - in Turkish - because your future university will need them.

Anonymous said...

Hi! Thanks for sharing valuable information. I have graduated in media field but my degree is in still process and I'll get it in mid of march so what you say can I still apply with my marksheet?

Spelayla G. said...

Yes, you can apply! Hurry up, because MA and PhD application will end soon!

Izzi Naluri said...

hi, I want to know what language they use to do the interview.. I'm a bit worried because my English is so so, my Turkish is like ppfftt!! :)
and tell us what are the contents of the interview? please specify and give us the details.. it will help us to prepare well for the upcoming questions during the interview :)
thankyou

Spelayla G. said...

Hi!

My interview was at Turkish Embassy in my country and it was held in English. In which language did you fill in the application form? I did it in English. Maybe interview can be also in local language, but I'm not sure, however Turkish staff at the Embassy in my country doesn't speak local language.

Anonymous said...

hii ! thanx for the perfect information ,, i had been invited for an interview in 28 of this month but i don't know the types of questions that will be asked for me , can you please show me an example or any thing that may help me ..
thanx alot
any thing will be appreciated .

Spelayla G. said...

Hi!
Please check my post Study in Turkey #2 and comments under the post, you will find answer to yout question there.

E Sara said...

hi ! thanks for all that interesting informations my question is :
i wanna know if all the documents that we gonna upload in the application should be translated in english or turkish known that in Morocco all the documents are delevried in French or Arabic plrase Answer me i really need help !

Spelayla G. said...

Hi!
I guess that now you are applying for scholarship: in which language is your application form? If only in English or Turkish, than also documents needs to be in this language. If the application form is also in French/Arabic, than you don't need to translate them. Anyway, if you will win scholarship, you will need to translate all documents to Turkish (only few universities will accept documents in English).

Sara said...

can i get scholarship for 3 years in medical as i hv compltd my 2 years in my country?

Spelayla G. said...

Hey Sara,
as far as I know, you will need to start your education again from the beginning. Maybe you will not need to pass all the exams again, but for sure you will not be able to continue your education from 3rd year on. If you want to do so, maybe check if this is posible will Tübitak scholarship, or contact Türkiye burslari team if they've changed some rules.

E Sara said...

Hi, yes i'm applying now for the scholarship in french so are you sure that it isn't neceseary to translate my documents?
One other thing is that when i come to the step where i should fill in my school informations there is a case where it's demanded to enter the notation system and the average Mark in fact here in Morocco we still studying the second semester so i can't fill the average of marks i don't know if you have a solution for this.
i'm really thankfull for your help.

Spelayla G. said...

I checked again web page, and it says that you don't need to translate documents now.
If you are applying for bachelor's degree, I guess you must wirte your average mark for high school...

E Sara said...

Ok I'm really thankfull for your help!

ndendé mbaye said...

hello.Me i choosed 6 university is it good or.

Spelayla G. said...

For which level are you applying?

ndendé mbaye said...

UNDERGRADE LEVEL

Spelayla G. said...

You must select 12 universities, not only 6.

ndendé mbaye said...

CAN I CREATE A NEW ACCOUNT

ndendé mbaye said...

PLEASE!CAN I CREATE A NEW ACCOUNT

Spelayla G. said...

Firstly, try to log in to your account and add 6 more universities. If it's not possible write or call Turkiye scholarship team (number and contact are on the official page). I think you cannot create a new account with the same email and apply again for the same level. And before applying again, please read carefully ''FAQ'' on the official page. Good luck!

ndendé mbaye said...

CAN I CREAT IT IN ANOTHER EMAIL

Spelayla G. said...

I don't know. You can try it or you can call scholarship comitee. (contact is on the official page)

Fedaa ashqar said...

Hey ,, Great info ,,
If there was a mistake in my application after submitting it , is any way to edit it ?

Spelayla G. said...

Hey!
Probably there are 2 ways:
-if you can still enter your account and you, by yourself you can correct it;
- contacting directly to scholarship team with your application information (I guess you received a number after you applied) and ask them to do it.

hii !!
after the interview my admission status changed from "blank" to "INPROGRESS" is it an a good sign or bad one ???!

Spelayla G. said...

Hi! This doesn't mean anything...don't worry and be patient. You will need to wait a few more days (or weeks) for the results. Good luck!

Anonymous said...

ahaa ok , thanx alot ,, yes i have to be more patient , good luck for all

Tiris said...

Hey,

Do you know what the minus red sign means in the admission status? It's a - , and I read a lot of people got that after their interview.

Spelayla G. said...

Hey! Don't worry about it. Important things for you will be sent to you by email approx. 1 month later.

Tiris said...

Hey,
Apparently many people are saying that it means we got rejected if we have this sign. That's why I was a bit worried and asked if you know what it means :)

So does it mean that we still got chances for the scholarship i.e. we didn't get rejected ? Do you know anyone who had this sign and still received the scholarship ?

Thank you. :)

محمد يحيى said...

hi thnxx for this info
my admission status is blank what does it mean is it good or what ?
bleez coz am lost

Spelayla G. said...

Hi!
No problem. DOn't worry about the admission status. Did you apply for undergrad. or postgraduate? Did you have interwiev?

Spelayla G. said...

Hey!

Sorry, I haven't seen your comment until now. Did you apply for undergrad uate or postgraduate? Did you have interwiev?

Tiris said...

Hi, it's for postgraduate. Yes, I had my interview. :)

Spelayla G. said...

So, I guess you have options to win the scholarship. Just be patient and check your mailbox daily.

Tâm Nguyễn Ngọc said...

Hi Spelayla G. That's great work. :D
Did you apply last year and get the scholarship for postgraduate?

Tâm Nguyễn Ngọc said...

When did you get the final result for postgraduate scholarship? :)

Spelayla G. said...

Hey! Yes I applied last year and I won the scholarship. They send us email on the last Friday in June, which was 28th. So I hope you will also get this email today.

Tâm Nguyễn Ngọc said...

Congrat! I hope so. Today is June 28 but I think the result won't be in June. It will be in the first week of July. Which field are you studying now?

Spelayla G. said...

Thanks! This year I had Turkish course. I've completed it a few days ago and now I'm enjoying my summer.
P.S.:if you find this post or page useful, please share it :)

You don't need to do it, because scholarship team will do it for you. You will only need to bring some documents to bank when you'll be asked for it.

Hi!

Your blog is so useful and informative! Thanks! Anyway, I am planning to apply for TB this upcoming March for Master's Degree and I am wondering if it is possible to bring my family with me and will the monthly stipend of 360usd be enough to cover for 2 person?

Spelayla G. said...

Hi!
Thank you! I think it's possible to bring your family with you, but you will not be able to support them with this stipend only. The problem is, that if you want to live in a student dormitory, there is no option that also family lives with you. This money maybe can be enough only to pay the rent (especially if you'll live in Istanbul and Ankara). If you'll live in a smaller city, than it's easier, but still difficult. Unfortunately they don't give you an extra support, if you decide not to stay in a student dormitory.

Spelayla G. said...

Check also Tübitak or some university scholarships (like Koç university), maybe they are higher and offer also support for family memebers.

Anonymous said...

Thanks for your reply! It really helps. However, does it has any differences in rent rates between fully furnished and under furnished house in Turkey?

Spelayla G. said...

I can also reply for Istanbul, since I live here. As far as I've seen, most of the flats are unfurnished, only if you want to rent only a room, in this case you'll find a fully furnished flat...so there is no price difference, I would say.

Anonymous said...

Hello, last year I had applied for the TB but wasn't chosen. Now I tried to create an account with the same email as last year and I used the same password too and my old profile was accessed. I still can make changes in it but I am not sure if I should apply with this same email and account? Shall I use another? Thanks..

Spelayla G. said...

Hi! So, if I understand correctly, your old profile, with all the documents still exists? I guess you can use old profile, however contact the scholarship team anyway. Also, when you open your old profile, is there written application 2015?

Anonymous said...

Well, correctly- all my personal info and other data is still there, except the docs I had uploaded last year and some fields. On the top is written 2015, but my last year's ''in progress'' is there too! It is so confusing. Maybe I should use another e-mail if I want to be sure. Thanks.

Spelayla G. said...

Yes, this is an option. Or send an email to scholarship team and ask. Good luck!

Hello, i did my interview for phd a month ago. I chosed
only one university out of 12 choices. From your experience do you think i have chance of winning the scholarship.

Spelayla G. said...

Hey! When I applied, I've written only 2 choices, so I guess that's possible, but I would be better if you'd have written 1 more choice too. Ive been placed on the second selected university, but I have no idea, what would hav happened if I've chosen only 1 university.

Thank you for the reply

I wanted to ask whether the team waited for u at the airport & what happened after u went out of the airport? Do they give u money for food or u have to spend it from the monthly money they give u?
Last thing do you think it's safe for a girl & do u regret it?
Thank you very much

Spelayla G. said...

Hi!
I think that there was a team at the Istanbul aiport (before u pick up the bags) and Ankara airport. You will not get any money right away, so bring with you some money. Your first scholarship will probably be paid at the end of October.
I think it's safe, but of course, depends where you'll stuy. All big cities can be dangerous, however I think you should not be affraid.

Anonymous said...

It's urgent!! I will receive my passport in September , so it will not be with me when I sign the contract do you think it's necessary
.??..?

Spelayla G. said...

Hi! I think it's not a problem. However you will have to apply for a student visa later, when you get your passport.

Anonymous said...

Salam, can you post a few pics of your dormitories ,food or transportation so we can know what we'll be facing thank uuuuuuu

Spelayla G. said...

Hi!
Unfortunately I don't have any photos of the dormitories. I can say that some are really bad and some really good. I know that last year's students were placed in the private dormitories, which are good. When you get your placement just google it :) Food is usually good. What about transportation?

Safa Azul said...

Hi! Great post. Congratulations on getting the scholarship! I'm hoping to apply for a scholarship for undergraduates next year. But I am curious as to what the competition will be like. Do I have to have extremely impressive academic achievements? Did you? Also, how many undergraduate scholarships do you think they give out each year? Thanks!

Spelayla G. said...

Hı!

Thank you! ANd sorry for so late reply. Well, the competition depends on other applicants in your country. As I know (but I might be wrong), there is a limited number of scholarship students per country.

Nurul Liyana said...

hello,i want to apply Turkiye Bushlari this year (2016) for Master in History. But my cgpa for my undergraduate studies only 2.5 :( is there any chance to win the scholarship?

Spelayla G. said...

Hi!
Your average should be at least 70%. I don't know your grade system. If it's lover the system will not let you to finish the application form.

Thach Phan said...

Hi,
Thank you so much for the information in the blog. There are still some of concerns that i would appreciate every much if you can help me out. Thanks in advance.
Is it compulsory to obtain C1 level of Turkish language after a year of studying the language even though the recipient is placed into the English-taught degree program? Or is it just a need to pass the language course then the student can proceed to the degree program?

I did read the FQA of the scholarship. they stated that the maximum number of universities to choose was 12 but did not specify whether or not it was compulsory to choose 12 for undergraduate level. So, is it a must to choose 12 universities? Can i just choose 3 or 4 since I have just only get my eyes on those Universities after searching the list of institutions provided.

Btw, I am studying in Malaysia as a foreign student. So I want to ask that whether it is possible for me be interviewed, process all of the contract's term and condition, including visa in Malaysia instead of going back my country? Does the application form ask for the current address of applicant where he/she is actually living and base on that to decide the interview location OR decide the interview location basing on nationality?

I know that all of my concerns are kind of long to get through but i hope that you can help me clear them out somehow. Thank you again...

Firstly, yes, you have to pass the exam, even tough your lessons will be in English. It might not be logical for you, but in most universities only 30% or lectures are thought in English. Nonstheless, you will live in Turkey, so knowing language is very useful indeed.

If you will apply for undergraduate, you have to fill all 12 choices, of course, put the one you want the most on the top of the list.

As far as I know, you'll write your adress and the country you currently live in on the application form, so you can do all the procudures from Malasya.

Good luck!

Hola Ana!

No, you don't need to convert. In case you'll need to do that, you can write only the %.

Good luck!

Hi! First off, thank you for such an informative blog. I am planning to apply for my Master's once the registrations are open again.

Just wondering, I stumbled on this article on line. Studying in Turkey really interests me, and I know there's a certain amount of adjustment to be had, but just wanted to know it's veracity based on your experience. Are these probably just some isolated cases, or is it like that there? Thanks!

Hi!
Some of the problems, mentioned in the above article, I've also mentioned in my other posts. Especially in your first year, expect unexpected. The health insurance will come late, however later it should be on time, meaning all year around.
Regarding languagge barrier - I think this is not a problem related to scholarship. Many Turkish people, even public officers speak very little or nothing English. It is stresfull to arrange the papers. I haven't had any problems registering at Language Center, but somewhere else, you might need help. Some universities arrange help groups, especially for residence permit appointments and other not. I have to mention here, that residence permit process is now much easier for students, as it used to be.
If you have any problem with scholarship, and if you are not studying in Ankara, where their office is located, than you can only reach the personnel by phone or email. This is very disturbing, since many people, who answer the phone, doesn't know how to help you.
Regarding the dorms- there are some very good and some very bad dorms. I think that in the last year, they gave international students only private dorms, which are better. In case that you get really bad dorm, you can always apply and change it, however you need to wait in the line...which is sometimes very long.

Thanks so much for your reply. I very much appreciate it. Btw, but could you please give me a bit of more insight about whether or not i need to obtain C1 level of Turkish in order to proceed to the degree program? I am concerning about that since 8 months might be not enough of time to get to advance level of the language that i know nothing of.

Is it okay if i just pass the Turkish language test after 8 months of study , i.e: at the level of B1 or B2?

Thank you so much

Spelayla G. said...

Hi!
As far as I know, it's obligatory to obtain C1. Don't worry, the course is very intensive. If you'll not finisih until the end of June, you can continue during the summer months.

Anonymous said...

Hi . I would like to ask if our grade only 70%,,are they accept for MA or PHD in turkey,? It is possible ,,?Hope you reply..thanks

Spelayla G. said...

Hi! If your average is under the requiered one, the system will not let you apply for scholarship. Try applying for university scholarships (check universities and programmes you are interested in and see their requirements).

Thach Phan said...

Thank you again for your information. I know that i am using kind of lengthy questions but i hope that you can bear with me through this. I am very thankful of your help.

Because of some universities requiring that the examination grades not be older 2 years old but i graduated my high school since 2013, so i want to ask that whether it will be able for me to apply to the scholarship? If yes, will there be any problems at all when i register to University for the degree program? I also got SAT results but I just got 1570 instead of 1600 as being required, can i just use them to apply? If i was granted the scholarship, do i need to take the SAT again?

Btw, I am feeling a bit stupid to ask about this but i want to make sure of things. Given the scenarios where the student is granted the scholarship, does that mean he/she is granted the admission to University program as well? if so, does that also mean that he/she can just proceed to university program after meeting the requirement of Turkish language without having to apply to University again or be required to submit any kind of other paper work to register to University?

Spelayla G. said...

Hi!
I thik that graduation should not be a problem, however some international exams are not valid any more, if more than 2 years passed since the exam.

So, will you apply for Turkiye Burslasi (Turkey Scholarship) or not? In this case, there might be other criteria, than if you apply directly to the university. You should know, that if you apply for this scholarship, you won't apply to university separately, but while applying for scholarship.

Hello
If I don't know Turkish language when I will be accepted I must study turkish language for a whole year then start my study ? or I will study the language with my first year subjects in the university

Spelayla G. said...

Hi! Firstly you will have 1 year of intensive Turkish classes and the following year you will start education at University. Anyway, when you arrive to Turkey, you will also have to register at university.

Thanks for your answer I still have two questions : what then is the summer course metioned in 2016 calendar? Is that a turkish course and i will have an exam after it or what ? My second question is i an now in my first year at medicine school when i will be accepted i will take the first year again or i will start at the second ?

Spelayla G. said...

Hi!
It's an intensive Turkish Summer Course. You need to apply for it seperately.
This one:http://istanbulkonstantinopel.blogspot.com.tr/2014/04/turkish-language-summer-school-turkce.html
If you want to apply for scholarship for studying, you will have your intensive Turkish course from late September/October until the middle/end of June.

Yes, if you got accepted, you need to start from the beginning. If you are already studying in Turkey, than better check the Başari Destek Bursu branch of scholarship.

Riad Bejta said...

Hello there! I wanted to ask do I have to translate my documents when I'm doing my online application?
Thanks!

Spelayla G. said...

Hi!
Before applying read the instructions correctly. The documents are accepted in several languages at this level.

Hi Spelayla! Do you know what does UÖA means? It appears in the official page but the information is only in turkish. http://www.trscholarships.org/index.php/en/uluslararasi-ogrenci-akademisi
Thank you!!!

Spelayla G. said...

Hi! It's just short for International Students' Academy. It's an extra curricular activity for students here...and it's only in Turkish.

EZZ ALDEIN AL KHALIL said...

Hi,
1-For motivation letter
Can we write it by word or pdf
Or we have to fill it in site?
2-can we send all docs as pdt files?

Spelayla G. said...

Hi!
If they haven't changed something in the application, you should write motivation letter in the site, not in a special document.
I think you should upload picutre as .jpg also documents, if it doesn't say different. I had pdg and jpg The files should not be too big. If they are too big, you will not be able to upload them.

Anonymous said...

Hi! Does anybody know if you have the same opportunities of getting the scholarship if you apply for private or public universities?

Spelayla G. said...

Hi!
Yes, there is no difference, however private universities might offer less places for foreigners in comparison to public ones.

Anonymous said...

Ok thank you! Another doubt that was mentioned in other posts above but still isn´t claire to me is: for masters scholarships does your country of origin matters? I know that the programmes are open for all countries but I don´t know if places are given according to this criteria.

Spelayla G. said...

Hi!
Everyone can apply. There must be different application period for Syrian students. For MA you need to choose according to your filed of study and for undergradute according country.

Anonymous said...

Hello, Im applying for a master scholarship and I dont know how I have to complete the education information in the high school level. I went to two different high schools one in order to do from first to third grade and another to do fourth until sixth grade. Do i have to complete just my three last grades (so the name of my second high school)?

Anonymous said...

Hello!
First I'd like to thank you on the useful information, it was of a huge help for me :)
I would like to ask if there is a way I can find out if the departments we choose as our preferences provide the MA studies with or without thesis. I've checked the universities' website and the same departments listed there provide both thesis/non-thesis programs, but is this also the case with the application for the scholarship.

Spelayla G. said...

Hi!
If you cannot enter both, than enter the most recent one (so the last 3 grades).

Spelayla G. said...

Hi!
When you will come to the step, when you need to choose the department in your application, you will see if the offered department is thesis/non-thesis programme. It should be written there.

Anonymous said...

Thank you! yes it allows me to enter just one high school name so I put the last one!

Hi I have a doubt related to the message above. I am applying for a master scholarship I have a bachelor degree in International Relations. I will select the Ibn Haldun Programme. I have seen in the “Search” all universities available. When you click on each university it appears all the masters available. For example in Anadolu University among the options are International Relations, Public Law, Private Law and History. My question is do I have to select 12 options for university placement but do I have to specify for example in the case of Anadolu that I choose International Relations?

Spelayla G. said...

Hi!
I advice you to check departments at the universities where you want to study. Good luck!

Spelayla G. said...

Hi!
You can choose different universities. You have to choose department. You can apply for 2 different departments at one university.

Spelayla G. said...

For MA scholarship you don't need to fill out all 12 placements, however I advice you to choose at least 2.

Sibal said...

Thanks for your kind reply, but I want to know about information regarding scholarships offered for my discipline and I don't know about procedure or anything related to it.
Kindly guide me, turkey is my dream place for study.

Unknown said...

Thanks for sharing so many useful information.:) I've still got one question you might be able to answer. I've been studying oriental studies and now I'm applying for graduate scholarship but there's a point where i got stuck. I want to choose middle east studies on Marmara Üniversitesi but for some reason the application system doesn't let me choose it just one completely different course (Contemporary Publishing and Broadcasting Management) which has nothing to do with my current field. I thought I can choose whatever field i want to study :O can you help me how it actually works? Thank you for your answer in advance

Spelayla G. said...

Hi!
The procedure is the same for all the disciplines. You just need to check the programme that universities offer, so you can choose the best one for you.

Spelayla G. said...

Hi!
Unfortunately not all the programmes open every year for foreign students. This might be the reason you cannot choose it. Check if other university offers similar programme, or check if Marmara University offers any type of scholarships (so not related to Turkiye burslari).
Btw: when I was applying, this was also one of the programmes I was considering :)

Unknown said...

thanks for your answer :) well, i checked if this course is offered for other majors than mine and for other majors they offer middle east studies...I don't really know why my major is not eligible for it because that's what I've been studing in the last couple of years :D well, I'm going to check out other unviersities as you suggested and ask for help from turkiye burslari as well. Hopefully I'll get an answer sooner or later :D

Riad Bejta said...

Hi! Thanks for the awesome information you are giving through this blog :)
I wanted to ask another question do you know if I can apply to Dentistry even though I was in vocational school? I tried to email turkiye burslari but they don't seem to answer. :/

Spelayla G. said...

Hi! Were you in vocational high school?

Riad Bejta said...

Yes , I was preparing for a year for turkiye burslari and now that the program I want does not show makes me really sad :/

Does anybody know how to enter the country manually? Im trying to complete the survey but my country does not appear among the options. I have tried several times to chat with TB support but they dont know anything.

Spelayla G. said...

Hi!
If your country doesn't appear on the list, write to their techincal support and they will add it to the list. I had a similar problem with my mother language (was not on the list) and after a few days they added it. Good luck!

Anonymous said...

Thank you! I will insist. The techical support is on the web page in the FAQ part, in the application web you just chat with TB supporters but they do not solve techical problems Am I right?

Unknown said...

Hello!! Can u provide me with some information on how to signing into the turkey scholarship site tbbs. Am trying but it's not working for me.

Spelayla G. said...

Yes, You are right. It will probably take them a few days to arrange it, so be patient.

Spelayla G. said...

Hi!
Go to the official page. Next to FAQ, there is a shining button ''APPLY''. Click there. Firstly you will need to create your account and than you can start the application process. Before starting it, read the instructions carefully.

Hi,

is it possible for me to apply for a undergraduate degree even though i have 2013 certificate?


Futhermore, What most important points should include in my essay & what kind of questions do they ask at the interview at the embassy ?

Spelayla G. said...

What do you mean by 2013 certificate?
Everyone has different interview questions. I think the mosy important thing is to have it clear why you want to study in Turkey and how can this affect your future career.

Hi Spelayla! Thank you for all the great information.
I am applying for this year's turkey africa scholarship undergraduate and I have some questions that I will be glad if you answer them Thank you:
1- the last term I had the only below 77% average in the last 3 years (67%) but I have the chance to do better in the next term and in my final national exam. Will this affect my application badly (I have put the average grade for the last 3 years and a presence certificate instead of the transcript. Is that okay?
2- Does the reference letter make a big difference if I don't have one?
3-I have chosen Math/Mathematical Engineering programs, are they very competitive?

Spelayla G. said...

Hi!
1- so the average of all year togheter should be as written - at least 70%. If you average is under it, the system will not allow you to apply for scholarship.
2- it's good to have a reference letter. I don't know how big difference does it make. It depends also on how successful are other applicants from your country.
3- I cannot reply to this question, since it depends on applicants choices. Generally is like this - if you are good enough to win a scholarship, they will also find a place for you to study.

admin said...

Thank you for your answer. Is it okay if I didn't upload the transcript, but the presence certificate instead because I won't have the full transcript until I graduate. Can they turn me down for this?

Spelayla G. said...

Hey!
I don't know, but since you haven't graduated yet, it is probably not a problem. But this is only my opinion. Let me know!

admin said...

I really hope so :) I will!

Hi Spelayla I am undergraduate 2016 applicant.I would like to ask you if I can choose 12 different departments and universities in burslari scholarship. Also can I include my preferances different programs such as engineering and social science. Is it a problem to choose the same university twice but in different departments.
Thanks bro gor this blog.

Spelayla G. said...

Hı!
I think you should choose 12 different universities, also you can choose different departments, but I think it can be bad for winning scholarship, becase it will show that you really don't know what to study.
It is important not to choose only universities from big cities (Istanbul, Ankara).
BTW, hasn't application already finished??

Anonymous said...

What about my chance if I choose 6 of my universities from big cities Istanbul, Ankara, Izmir.

Spelayla G. said...

I think you can do this. But İ think it can be problem if you choose 12 different departments.

Thank you! Please, feel free to share it. It is very difficult to change your department after you've been selected. I would suggest you to mention this at the interview and maybe they might change it before the final assesment.

If you get accepted, they will firstly send you an offer for scholarship - so yes, you can reject it.

Hi,
Thank you for the information following up with this year scholarship intake. It has been helpful to me.
I got some questions that i would like to have your help on. I very much appreciate it. Here it goes:
- I did apply to the scholarship for undergraduate student. But i think i made one mistake during filling out the address information. I should have ticked on the box indicating that my permanent address is different rom my making address since i am studying abroad but i did not do so. After submitting the application, there was no other way to modify or even delete the pervious application to submit another one. So, i want to ask whether or not it will affect the scholarship assessment in overall? Btw, They also asked me to answer where i would like to have the interview. Does this information determine the location of city/country i would attend the interview if accepted?

- The second is that i did choose all of the 12 universities/department preference in Istanbul, Akarnar and Izmir, except for a program on another city but i can recall the name. Will it negate my application assessment and result? They had the information in the system that i SHOULD not choose more than half of the choices in those big cities. But they used the word "should" so that i only thought of it as an advice only. And for this year system, if there was something that did not comply with the condition/requirement, they usually did let me get through that stage to continue proceeding unless it was fixed but i was able to get through to the next step in the application filling, which made me think it of being acceptable. Please, could you advice me on this?

- Finally, do you have any hindsights on when the applicants can expect the result email of the first section round? Because there has seemed to be nothing so far, which has been getting me nervous and worried. Btw, in the worst instance that i was not selected for the second round of interview, will they also send an email to inform of such?

I am so sorry fir such lengthy comment asking so many questions like this but please bear with me. Thank you so much in advance. I am looking forward to hearing from you soon.

Spelayla G. said...

Hi!

Thank you! You are most welcomed to share this blog with your friends.

1) I think it will not influence on the possibility of winning scholarship. If you study abroad, it might be problem when they call you for interveiw, because they will call you from your home country. In this case they might offer you a Skype interview.

2- I don't know the answer. In case you will have interview, they might ask you to change your preferences (if this will be a problem). Since the system let you do it like this, I think that it should not be a big problem. Ask them at the interview anyway.

3- You have to be very patient right now. At this post I've shared the scholarship calendar, as you will see there is no exact date. However it is still quite early.

Thach Phan said...

Thank you so much for you info.
But during the application fill-out, they did ask me about where i would like to have my interview, i answered the city i am staying at the moment in the country i am studying college. and i did just fill in my address in the foreign country instead of one in my home country in the mailing address section. So, do you think if it is possible for me to have an interview in the foreign country instead of being in my home country if i was selected? Cuz it would be inconvenient for me to go back my home country for one day the return here for school....

I am looking forward to hearing from you soon
Thank you so much for you help.

Spelayla G. said...

In thi case, of course the will call you to a possible interview in your choosen country.

Thach Phan said...

Thanks for your reply to my comment. I very appreciate it. Btw, I want to ask one more thing. I hope that you can help me out.

I heard from some of the applicants this year that their referees got the email from Turkish Government Scholarship Board to confirm about the reference letters. But here is the thing: I uploaded the reference letters sent to me by my referees because i asked them to write for me their recommendation letters way before the start of the scholarship application receiving period. Afterwards, i asked my referees to check their email inbox to see if there was any kind of emails from the scholarship board, they told me none.

So, it got me concerned that it is because i uploaded their reference letters during filling out the application form before submitting it so that my referees did not get any kinds of emails concerning about that matter any more. Am i right? Or is it that the referees had to get the emails to confirm about the reference letters or that is just for applicants who did not upload their reference letters while filling out the application form so their referees would get another email for the reference letter? Or is there something else? I really don't understand this point at all.

I am looking forward to hearing from you soon
Thank you so much for your time and help

Spelayla G. said...

Hey!
I think you are worrying too much. It's impossible for them to check all the references. If I understood correctly, you've uploaded references to application form, right? In thi case, everything is ok.

suumaa said...

Good day. During the application I uploaded a signed reference letter in an institution headed envelop provided by my referee but till date he has not received a link to confirm. what is wrong? also on the letter of intent i mentioned that after completion of my studied i will come back home to work. is this a negative point for an application?

Hey!
Probably end of this month/beginning of July. YOu will get university placements later.
Could you plase share you interview experience by commenting Study in Turkey 2.1?

Spelayla G. said...

Hey!
1. That depends on how hard will you study and how close your native language is to Turkish. You will continue learning also after finishing course (by yourself).
2. Not during the first year, at least not legally.

Spelayla G. said...

It means that they need to review your applications. If the interveiws already finished, that probably (unfortunately) means that you haven't won scholarship.

suraj pudasaini said...

Hey there,

thanks for the blog and your helpful comments..

I took the interview about a month ago and waiting for positive response.

I have applied to all 12 programs in English but have not submitted my English proficiency test.

-So, if I got accepted for the scholarship; can a University accept me without my English proficiency score?

- How is the security for international student there?

- i have also been accepted by German university (so I don't need to pay for the University, only for dorms, which I could pay by working there.) What would you do if you were at my place (e-mail me if you do not want to public your opinion)?

sincerely..
