What is YÖS (Foreign Students Examination)?
YÖS is an exam held in Turkey for foreign students wishing to receive undergraduate education in public universities in Turkey. Each Turkish university is holding its own YÖS and determines special allocations for foreign students.
YÖS can be entered by foreign students studying their final year in high school or who have already graduated from high school. There is no age limit for those wishing to sit this exam.
Students may sit the YÖS exam of more than one university. It is not an exam related to those wishing to apply to Masters and Doctorate programs, it is only for the students wishing to study an undergraduate program in Turkey.
