Cardiff University has a long history of welcoming students from Turkey.

Cardiff University is a popular study location for students from Turkey. Some of the most popular courses include Business (including MBA), Engineering, Human Rights Law LLM and Politics, European Studies and International Relations.

Foundation courses

If you have graduated with the Lise Diplomasi, you will be required to successfully complete it with an average of at least 3 out of 5, with at least 3 in key subject areas to qualify for the International Foundation Programme.

Undergraduate courses

Most degree programmes at Cardiff University require a GPA of 4.0.

Postgraduate taught courses

Entrance requirements for taught postgraduate programmes (i.e. Masters courses) vary according to the course applied for and the background of the applicant. As a general rule admissions tutors would ask that the following conditions be met:

  • Successful completion of a relevant four year bachelors degree from a recognised institution, with a good GPA.

Postgraduate research programmes

As a general rule students applying for research programmes from Turkey should be able to provide evidence that they have already carried out research, usually via the successful completion of a relevant Masters degree.

Academic Entry Requirements

  • Successful completion of a relevant four year bachelors degree from a recognised institution, with a good GPA and possibly also successful completion of a relevant Masters programme from a recognised institution.

English language

A relevant English language qualification is also required — normally a minimum of 6.5 IELTS or TOEFL 575 (230 CBT), however, this may vary from course to course.
