We have a large community of international students here at Solent University and understand how challenging the process of relocating to a new country can be. Students coming from the Turkey can find advice about obtaining a visa and studying in the UK right here on the Solent website.

For more specific advice about coming from Turkey to study, please see the information below. Alternatively, you can contact the British Council's Turkey offices or our own international advice team.

Entry requirements

As a general guide, we look for qualifications that are equivalent to the British high school A-levels. A portfolio is also required for most of our art and design courses.

Students with a Devlet Lise Diplomasi or Lise Bitirme Diplomasi may be considered for a foundation year (Year 0 of a bachelor's degree)

For postgraduate courses, we look for qualifications that are equivalent to the British bachelor's degree (Lisans Diplomasi).

International scholarships

We are pleased to offer scholarships to students from Turkey. These are available if you are applying for a full-time course at Solent University and are a self-funded, full-fee student.
