How to apply as a Freemover or Visitor Student:
To be able to apply online, you first must provide our Office with basic information so we can set up an account for you on the system. Please fill out the nomination form (link) completely and properly and submit the form, which will go to our Incoming Student Advisor.
As part of the application process, you must choose courses you would like to take.
Please note that these courses are for the application procedure only.
The application system is separate from the university's registration system. The courses selected during the application process are only to show the department what kind of courses you are interested in so they can make their decision. These courses exist only in the application system server and are deleted as soon as the decisions have been made. Registration for actual classes takes place after you have arrived at Boğaziçi.
Departments and Courses
Because the course schedules for the upcoming semester are not available online at the time of application, you will need to look at the course catalog of the previous term’s schedule for the department(s) in which you are interested. Please check the course catalogue of the relevant department(s) and from the previous term’s schedule from the registration web page provided below.
Your application will not be accepted for evaluation unless 2 courses from the relevant department or program are indicated in the online application form.
Undergraduate students cannot take graduate courses but graduate students can take undergraduate courses. Graduate students must list at least 2 graduate courses from the relevant program.
Please keep in mind that international students cannot take courses from executive and other graduate programs. The code names of these courses are as follows: ASIA-ASIL, EF, ADEX, MIR, INCT, and BIS.

The Application Process
Once applications are received by the Office of International Relations, the following procedures take place:
1. The application goes through a preliminary review by our Office. If a document is unacceptable or missing any parts, it will be returned to you for revision by e-mail, with a letter detailing what changes need to be made. Once you have made the changes, you must re-apply.
2. If the application is complete, your application sent to the department(s) you have chosen for evaluation. The academic departments or institutes make admission decisions. Please note that the Office of International Relations is not involved in academic matters.
Approximately 4-8 weeks after your application is submitted, you will receive a letter stating whether or not you have been accepted to Boğaziçi University.
If you have been accepted, you will also receive a hard copy of this acceptance at the address you indicated as your home address on your application.
Please note: Applicants are not considered as accepted until they have received their official letters of acceptance!
