Phase I: Pre-evaluation

Pre-evaluation is done to determine whether a student is eligible to apply or not, according to the related legislation. Applications of the candidates, fulfilling the requirements, are submitted to the related academic units. Applications of the candidates, which do not fulfill the requirements, are “rejected” during the application process.

Phase II: Evaluation and Results

Candidates who satisfied the application criteria are evaluated by the related academic units. The list of the candidates who get admission is announced on the following webpage: http://oidb.metu.edu.tr/tr/butun-duyurular

For the pre-evaluation or evaluation period, documents cannot be returned to those who are rejected.


The courses taken from the previous programs can be counted into the new program by the proposal of the Department Chair and the decision of the related Administrative Committee. These courses are included in the Cumulative Grade Point Average, starting from the semester the student started or transferred to the program in which he/she is enrolled.

The duration spent in the previous program is also considered for the calculation of the maximum education time of the new program.
