Required Documents for Registration to Phd Programs

All foreign nationals who will be studying in Turkey are required to have a student visa for the duration of their academic stay. In order to get a student visa, students need to apply to the Turkish Consulate nearest to their town-of-residence with the letter of acceptance provided by BAU. A tourist visa is not acceptable for registration. Students who live in Turkey should provide the photocopies of their Student Residence Permit. Students who have a “Blue Card” do not need to submit student visa or residence permit.
