Transfers at the end of the first year cannot be permitted for students coming from a higher education institution in which examinations are not held at the end of the first year.
– In order to transfer to Akdeniz University from abroad, the central placement score of the students in the year they were admitted to the higher education institution must be equal or higher than the general quota base score for the same year of the programme which they wish to transfer to. These students are not required to be totally successful in all courses. Transfers through the central placement score will be considered separately from the quotas for transfers from abroad.
– Students applying for transfer to the Akdeniz University Faculty of Medicine from other countries are given precedence if the Faculty of Medicine at which they are currently studying is accredited by institutions recognized by the World Federation for Medical Education (WFME), or the European Association for Quality Assurance in Higher Education (ENQA).
– An acceptable level of proficiency in the Turkish language is required before a student can be allowed to start any educational or training courses, with the exception of candidates who are eligible to register for programmes in which all courses are in a foreign language or languages.

  • The Turkish Proficiency Certificate awarded by Akdeniz University-TÖMER,
  • The Turkish Proficiency Certificate awarded by a Yunus Emre Institution.

Candidates who do not submit the required Turkish Proficiency Certificate before they start their courses will be given a deferment for a period of one year after registration. This is to allow them to improve their standard of Turkish Proficiency to the required level. Candidates who achieve the required Turkish Proficiency Certificate at the end of their 1st deferment period will be permitted to start their courses at the beginning of the following academic year. Candidates will have their registrations cancelled if they fail to reach the required standard in the Turkish Proficiency Examination in the two years following their registration in the Turkish Education Programme.
-Transfer procedures for the students who want to transfer to Akdeniz University from the universities in a foreign country are carried in accordance with the principles which will be determined by the Higher Education Council.

  • Comparisons between courses which the student has previously taken, and the courses offered in the diploma programme to which the student has applied to transfer will be made by the relevant commissions, and a decision will be made about which semester or grade the student will start on according to the following criteria;
  • If the total number of ECTS credits of the exempted courses is from 1 to 39 ECTS, the student will study on year 1 of the course;

  • Within the Adaptation Process, successfully completed courses which have previously been taken will be transferred and they will be included for calculating the GPA.
