Do you accept SAT or IELTS as an English Language Exam Score?
The English Exams that we accept are TOEFL (IBT, CBT, PBT), PTE Academic (Pearson Test of English), and ÜDS/YDS/KPDS/YÖKDİL. Unfortunately, we do not accept SAT or IELTS. Please see the image below to see the minimum scores we accept for each exam.
If English is not the first/official language of the applicant's home country and if the student does not have one of the above English Proficiency Exam Certificates, then they must take the English Proficiency Exam we have available for registered students.
The exam is free and will be held online on the 15th, 28th and 29th of August. If you miss these dates, the second set of exams will be held on September 6, 7, and 8.
Students who fail to pass the English Proficiency exam at Işık University will have to study in the English Preparatory School for a year. Please click here to learn more about the English Proficiency Exam.
How much does the English Prep year cost?
The English Prep year's tuition is the same as the Undergraduate Program's that the student is enrolled in. For example, a student enrolled in Psychology (English) which costs 3600 USD per year, will pay 3600 USD for the English Prep year.
In how many installments are the undergraduate tuition payments made?
The undergraduate tuition payments are made in a total of 3 installments. First, a 1000USD deposit payment is made to secure a spot for the student in their program and register them. After that payment, students need to make two payments, 1 before each term begins.
For example, for a student who is applying to an engineering program which costs 4800 USD annually, the student will make a 1000 USD deposit, which will be used for the student's Fall Semester tuition. So before the Fall Semester begins, the student will have to pay the remaining 1400 USD for the Fall Semester. Before the Winter Semester begins, the student will make a 2400 USD tuition payment. (1000+1400+2400)
If the student makes their deposit and Fall Semester payment before August 31st, they will get 10% off their tuition fee for the 2023-24 year. So the total payment they will make will be 4320 USD (1000+1160+2160).
