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

International students (Undergraduate and Graduate) are to obtain their student visas in order to study in Turkey before they come to Turkey. Students should apply to the nearest Turkish Consulate in their native country with their “Letters of Acceptance” issued by Applied University. There, they can also obtain the latest information about visa procedures and the required documents.

The student visa is required in order for students to apply for a residence permit in Turkey. Here are the some important issues;

  • You must obtain your student visa before coming to Turkey.
  • The visa is stamped in the passport.
  • The Registrar’s Office of the Turkish University sends the Letters of Acceptance.
  • Your local Turkish Consulate may require additional documents (in addition to passport and letter of acceptance).
  • A fee is usually charged for the issuing of a student visa.

It is mandatory for all students, wishing to study in Turkey, to have health insurance coverage during the full duration of their studies. Valid Health Insurance is REQUIRED in order to apply for a Turkish Residence Permit (Residence Permit application process).

Please note that NO TRAVEL INSURANCE will be accepted by the Turkish Immigration Office! (processing Residence Permit applications)

Students accepted to Turkish University will therefore need to subscribe to a private insurance covering your health for, at least, the first 4 months of their stay in Turkey (Usually companies offer yearly contracts).
This health insurance should be valid in Turkey. They can either subscribe to an international company that has a branch in Turkey (mandatory), or directly sign a contract with a Turkish Private health insurance company during the first few days of their stay (most students choose this option as it is the safest and most effective regarding the completion of the Residence Permit application)
If you have difficulties finding such insurance, you can ask the Co – Corporation International Office for assistance (

After 2-3 months following their arrival to AGU, accepted AGU students will obtain their residence permit card. They will then have 2 options regarding their health insurance coverage:

Either continue subscribing to private health insurance companies until the end of their studies
Or switch to the Turkish State General Health Insurance at the SGK. This option is more costly but generally offers a better health insurance package. The General Health Insurance at the SGK costs around 1750TL/year** to be paid at once at the beginning of each academic year).
