YÖS test is a test for undergraduates who want to study in Turkey at undergraduate levels in Turkish universities and the result is acceptable for all Turkish universities.

The test was held nationally by the Turkish Assessment Organization until year five, but in the following years and from year two, it was administered independently by each university in accordance with the rules adopted by the Turkish education system. Students who intend to take this exam must first determine their desired university and then follow the university’s registration date and procedure and take the exam.

A test conducted by the Assessment Organization prior to Year two consisted of three questions, of which two were Intelligence Test two, Mathematical Question, and five Geometry Question. After the exam was given to the universities themselves, the number of questions and budgeting questions were also influenced by the conditions of each university so that in some years only some mathematics and geometry or only intelligence tests were introduced.


.Applicants must be a high school senior or high school graduate

.Applicants must be foreign nationals

If an applicant is a Turkish citizen at birth and has been issued a Turkish citizenship certificate by the Turkish Ministry of Interior, s/he must obtain and submit the required forms from the Ministry of the Interior.

Citizens of the Republic of Turkey or the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus who have completed high school in a foreign country are eligible for this law.

Studying in Turkey

Universities and institutes of higher education in Turkey are required to accept a quota of up to three (non-Turkish) foreign students each academic year. In this regard, the ÖSYM (Student Selection and Replacement Center) Turkey has been commissioned to conduct a test called Y خارجیS (External Students Examination) which is held annually in April in Turkey and several countries in the region.

Given the high level of knowledge of Iranian students compared to other countries in the region, as well as the high academic credibility of Turkish universities, the low tuition and living costs, the English language test, the ease of access to Turkey and many other factors This is a great opportunity for Iranian volunteers to get the chance to study at prestigious universities in Turkey.

Turkish Universities

The educational system of Turkish universities is fully compliant with the American educational system standards and the courses are offered in a semester-unit. The language of instruction will be English, French, German or Turkish depending on the university and major.

The curriculum of Turkish universities is almost similar to that of Iranian universities, with the beginning of the fall semester beginning in October and the end of January and spring term ending in February and ending in June and the summer semesters running from July to August.


This exam enables you to study in all fields of engineering, medicine, art and humanities at Turkish universities.

In recent years, Turkish universities have gained a high degree of international accreditation in international societies, so that their academic credentials are recognized worldwide. In the field of medicine, after graduation, an international practice card is awarded. Scholarships are available to eligible students in all disciplines by American and European educational institutions and institutes, and even in some universities from the second semester onwards can be transferred to US universities in the same discipline and semester.

In general, Turkish universities have a wide range of educational facilities, libraries, internet and laboratory equipment, numerous sports facilities, recreational facilities and health services. Most universities have very low-cost dormitory facilities, and although universities do not offer pre-requisites for dormitories, Iranian students have generally been able to use the dormitory in previous years.

An important point to keep in mind for studying in Turkey is that Turkish universities usually do not have any commitment for students to give them accommodation, but in recent years they have provided accommodation to foreign students. Students receive health insurance during their studies at Turkish universities and their medical facilities are completely free.

Choosing a degree like Iranian National University will be done after the test. It should be noted that electing a degree will not necessarily be in an educational setting, nor will it have to do with a high school diploma. The experienced consultants of the institute will make a good choice for the volunteer based on their experience and knowledge of the statistics and results of previous years, which can increase the chances of volunteers acceptance
