English Language Requirements

Requirements for Molecular Biology and Genetics

All applicants are required to have a B.S. degree in molecular biology and genetics, biology, or in a related field of science or engineering.

Students with a B.S. degree in chemistry, chemical engineering, physics or a related field may also apply; however, such students may be requested to take several undergraduate courses in molecular biology and genetics to acquire necessary background in the field. Evaluation of applicants is based on their ALES (Akademik Personel ve Lisansüstü Egitimi Giris Sinavi - Academic Personnel and Postgraduate Education Entrance Examination) scores, past academic records, reference letters and an interview.

Applicants who are not Turkish citizens and Turkish citizen applicants who are residents of another country may take GRE instead of ALES. All non-native speakers of English are required to submit a proof of satisfactory knowledge of English.

Work Experience for Molecular Biology and Genetics

No work experience is required.
