The University of Glasgow has a long established relationship with Turkey dating back to the late eighteenth century; with our earliest recorded student having served as Chaplain to the British Embassy in Constantinople. The University extends a warm welcome to students from Turkey and our Turkish graduates have gone on to pursue careers in Medicine, Business and Education.
Our campus is currently home to over 4,000 international students from 180 countries and is located at the heart of the west end of Glasgow, a vibrant and multicultural European metropolis.
Similar to Turkey, Scotland is a country rich in history and culture and it is this shared love of rich cultural heritage that typically entices Turkish students to choose Glasgow as their desired place of study.
We welcome students to the University of Glasgow with a variety of different qualifications. We have a team of experts that will equate any of the qualifications you hold to our entry requirements. If you're unsure, you can email us your qualifications for asessement.
The University of Glasgow will consider students who have taken A Levels, International Baccalaureate, or a recognised foundation programme. SAT and AP are also accepted. Students with Anadolu Lise, Fen Lise and Lise Bitirme Diplomasi may be considered for year one entry where they have achieved 75% or above, with 75% in key subjects.
Applications with 32-36 points will be considered for direct admission to most schools. Please note that there are certain exceptions.
We will consider applications to Masters degrees from graduates holding a Bachelors Degree or Lisans Diplomasi. Applicants with a GPA of 3.0 in Bachelors degree or better may be considered for postgraduate study.
