Covid-19 Update
The Koç University Graduate Schools are aware of the current barriers faced by some international applicants to provide valid GRE and TOEFL test score reports due to test cancellations.

 

If you do not have a valid GRE and TOEFL test score, you should register for the next available GRE and TOEFL test date available in your country and indicate the date on the online application form in the relevant sections.

Applicants without a GRE and TOEFL test score will still be evaluated on the basis of all the other application documents (Statement of Purpose, Recommendation letters, Publications, CV, others) and the Graduate Schools may issue conditional admissions to selected candidates.

In order to enroll as a new student in the Spring 2021 semester, candidates that will be offered conditional admission should provide before or during the enrollment period official GRE and TOEFL test score reports as specified in the conditional admission letter.
