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 Southampton Solent University and are a self-funded, full-fee student.
