Specific Arrangements for Recognition of Prior Learning
A student who is currently enrolled in a Ph.D. programme in the same discipline at another institution and has successfully completed at least one semester, upon submitting all required documents before the deadline, may transfer to a Ph.D. programme at Maltepe University upon the recommendation of the department administration and with the approval of the Administrative Committee of the Graduate School of the Institute. The decision taken will also include eligibility for exemption from some course requirements of the graduate programme. Students who transfer from another university must be successful in the Maltepe University English Proficiency Exam or in an equivalent English examination.
Graduates from other disciplines are accepted to the programme provided they take undergraduate courses to make them ready to take graduate courses.
Recognition of prior non-formal and in-formal learning will also be considered although rules and regulations are not yet adequately developed in Turkish Higher Education System.
