AGU, Abdullah Gül University, diploma equivalency


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.

Obtaining an Diploma Equivalence Certificate for your high school diploma is MANDATORY in order to complete your registration in any Turkish higher education institution, including at AGU. Please note that it will require at least one week to be processed and that you cannot register to the University without it.

The recommended option:

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.

You will need the following documents:

  • Equivalence Diploma Application Form
  • Passport
  • Student Visa
  • Original Diploma
  • Transcripts
  • ID Card

Otherwise, you can also obtain this certificate in Kayseri (NOT recommended)

  • The Equivalence Certificate is a document issued by the Turkish Ministry of Education or the Embassies from your country and it proves your education is equivalent to education in Turkey.
  • In Kayseri, the Equivalence certificate can be obtained from the Kayseri Provincial Directorate of National Education (Kayseri İl Milli Eğitim Müdürlüğü)

NOTE: the notarized translation of the diploma and the transcript is required only when the documents are not in one of the following languages:

  • Arabic
  • English
  • German
  • French
