Application Deadlines

Application/Admission Process
Applications and Admission Process involves the following stages:

Online Application: We only accept online applications. All applications should be submitted to: http://gradapp.ku.edu.tr/ .

Please visit FAQ and Online Application Info Page before you start. Deadlines for 2017-2018 Academic year are listed below.

Written Exam:  Some programs may  require written exams as a part of their evaluation process to all or shortlisted students. Details of the programs that require written exam is announced below. *We can not provide any information about the written exams.

Interview: All programs conduct interviews with the promising candidates.

Application Requirements for Non-Thesis Programs: You may be able to find departmental requirements at each department’s web page.

Conditional Admissions:

ALES/GRE Scores:

* All students, except non-thesis LL.M. (Please see LL.M. program details for requirements), are required to have an either ALES or GRE score. Applicants can submit their applications without accompanying GRE or ALES (for Turkish applicants) scores. However, GSSSH strongly encourages students to take ALES/GRE exams before the application deadline of their choice (early or regular).   *Minimum required scores are available on every programs webpage. While submitting your application, please make sure to add the ALES/GRE exam date you are scheduled to take. A score must be presented during the final candidate selection process.

* In exceptional cases, PhD programs may offer conditional admissions to applicants who are not able to submit their GRE scores by the application deadline but provide a strong application package (with high GPA, strong letters of recommendation, being graduated from a highly-regarded institution, publication record or other academic merits).

* All candidates will be required to present their GRE scores in order to receive full admission to their respective program.

 Missing Documents:

* Applications not completed by the time of the review date will not be competitive for admission and/or funding.

* Making sure that the application is complete is the responsibility of the applicant and should be done in a timely manner.

 Final Admission Announcement:

* Applicants will be notified of final admission decisions within 2-6 weeks after the application deadline.

* Some notifications may take longer due to the processing of written exams and/or interviews.

* Applicants who are contacted by the Graduate School before the written exam or interview date should conclude that they were not shortlisted as a candidate.

Application Evaluation and Decision announcement:

* Please note that all MA/Ph.D. applications are evaluated soon after the application deadline (early or regular).

* We offer rolling admissions for all Ph.D. candidates.  However, applicants should also note that priority consideration will be given to applications received by the announced by the application deadline. Please email gsss@ku.edu.tr for details.
