The Diploma Equivalence (Denklik Belgesi) is a document stating that your high school diploma is equivalent to a Turkish high school diploma and that you are therefore apt to enter studies in a higher education institution in Turkey. This document is requested from and issued by the Provincial Directorate of National Education of the city the student will study in (Or, if possible, from a Branch in the Turkish Embassy of the student’s country of origin).

Obtaining an Diploma Equivalence Certificate for your high school diploma is MANDATORY in order to complete your registration in any Turkish Higher Education Institution. Failure to obtain a Diploma Equivalence certificate would cancel any pre-registration and acceptance status to the University.

To obtain the Equivalence Certificate at a Turkish Consulate/Embassy in your hometown

It will be easier (they already know your local High School diploma system and how to adapt it to the Turkish Education system), faster and most importantly, you will obtain your document in time for your registration.

  • Equivalence Diploma Application Form
  • Passport
  • Student Visa
  • Original Diploma
  • Transcripts (must cover ALL high school years according to Turkish Ministry of Education regulations and must be stamped by Ministry of Education / Foreign Affairs or by the High school (fresh stamp, not photocopy). This is mandatory for the obtention of the Diploma Equivalence certificate)
  • For Apostille Convention Signatory countries (see list here): your high school diploma and transcripts must be apostilled (mandatory according to Turkish Ministry of Education regulations). For countries who are not Apostille Convention Signatories (see list here): your high school diploma and transcripts must be aproved/stamped by the Ministry of Education or Ministry of Foreign affairs or other relevant institution in your country)
