International foundation courses
Full-time courses across our five faculties typically last for three to four years, although some degrees such as medicine and architecture have a longer duration.
Students with the Apolytirion of Lykeion require a grade of 17 or 18 plus two A levels, depending on the course applied for. For entry to many courses we also accept the Apolytirion without A levels, where very high grades have been achieved. Students with the Devlet Lise Diplomasi are required to complete a foundation programme for entry to undergraduate programmes.
Students applying for a course with BBB A level entry requirements require an overall grade of 17 in the Apolytirion, plus grades BB at A level.
Students taking A levels or the IB should refer to the online undergraduate prospectus for entry requirements.
Students taking APs or SATs should refer to our entry requirements for the USA.
