Meet us in Turkey

Our Global Officers travel to Turkey regularly for Education Fairs, visits to agents and other events. These are great opportunities to speak to us about applying to study at the University of Portsmouth and it would be great to meet you there!

See our upcoming events below, or check our events page for full listings. 

PassPort Bursary

Students from Turkey are eligible to receive our PassPort Bursary. The PassPort Bursary gives privately-funded students a 10% tuition fee reduction for their first year of study at Portsmouth. It applies to all degree courses with fees of £13,200 or above for 2018 entry. 

Entry Requirements

We are happy to consider overseas applications on a case by case basis. As a general guide:


Students with less than 4/5 or 70% in their Devlet Lise Diplomasi (State High School Diploma) or Lisa Bitirme Diplomasi (Private High School Finishing Diploma) will normally be required to successfully complete a Foundation Year before beginning their undergraduate studies.

We recommend that you take a foundation programme at our partner college, International College Portsmouth (ICP).

We offer an Engineering and Technology Foundation Year in our Faculty of Technology. On successful completion of this foundation year, students can transfer to one of a wide range of engineering and technology degrees.


The minimum entry requirement is one of the following:

Students with more than 4/5 or 70% in their Devlet Lise Diplomasi (State High School Diploma) or Lisa Bitirme Diplomasi (Private High School Finishing Diploma) will be considered for direct entry onto Year 1 of a degree programme without a foundation year.

At least one year of degree-level study at a recognised university. The university also accepts transfer students from a recognised institution with good/excellent average grade

Good UK A-Level Grades - this will be based on UCAS tariff point equivalency, including subject specific requirements where appropriate

Between 28 and 31 points in the International Baccalaureate (IB), depending on the specific degree course being applied for


Students with the Lisans Diplomasi can apply for one of our Master degree programmes with a minimum of GPA of 2.4 or higher depending on the course entry requirements.

Please note that all applications are considered on an individual basis and students may be admitted to a Masters programme with a lower level degree if they have work experience relevant to the course applied for. Pre-master programmes are available at International College Portsmouth (ICP) for a number of courses.

For entry onto our MBA, students will also need at least 3 years relevant work experience after graduation in a managerial or supervisory capacity. Work experience is also required for several other postgraduate courses and many courses will require you to have studied relevant subjects. Please see our courses for more details.


Students holding a good Masters Degree will be considered for PhD study upon submission of a research proposal. Please visit our Graduate School pages for information on specific areas of research.

English Language requirements:

Please visit English language requirements for more details. We offer Pre-sessional English language programmes for applicants who do not yet meet the required English level for entry onto our degree courses.

International Alumni Referral Awards

We know that the best promotion is 'word of mouth'. We also know that if students have a good experience at Portsmouth, they will tell their friends, family and colleagues - and sometimes, as a result, one of those people decides to come and study at the University of Portsmouth. We want to formally recognise this assistance in recommending that person to the University of Portsmouth.

The International Alumni Referral Award (IARA) scheme is for current and former University of Portsmouth students who refer an applicant to study here. We reward the current/former student with £400 if their application results in a registration.

How does the scheme work?

Please use the following form:

Please download and complete the International Alumni Referral Award Form above. You must ensure that the International Alumni Referral Award Form is attached to the online application when it is submitted. When you are submitting the online application, please select IARA from the agent drop-down menu and attach a copy of the completed IARA Form with the 'Supported Documents Area'.

Please note: we cannot link the application to you after we have received the application and it has been input into the University's Admissions System.

If you have any questions about this scheme, please email us.


Our International Officers are specialists in helping students from your region to apply and can answer any questions you might have. 

Contact Jessica if you have any questions!
