High school / secondary education (or higher)
All High school Transcripts/Grades (corresponding to the 3 or 4 high school years)
The entry qualification documents are accepted in the following languages: English / Turkish.
Often you can get a suitable transcript from your school. If this is not the case, you will need official translations along with verified copies of the original.
This is an easy procedure where the Provincial Department of Education in Istanbul (and in some cases a Turkish Embassy/Consulate) will provide the ‘Equivalency Letter’ (in Turkish ‘Denklik Belgesi’) certifying that the foreign High-School diploma is equivalent to its counterpart, the Turkish high school diploma.
You must take verified copies of the entry qualification documents along with you when you finally go to the university.

The goal of the BİLGİ Genetics and Bioengineering Undergraduate Program is to train engineers who can create, adapt, integrate, and disseminate knowledge in biology, biotechnology, bioinformatics and genetics; be inclined to creative teamwork; possess abilities in analytical thinking and systematic approaches in addition to ethical values; and who are conscious of human health and the environment with a strong intellectual and scientific background.
Our students will learn the basic engineering principles to analyze biological mechanisms and systems through an engineering perspective. Among the goals of the program are the design of new technologies for biological systems and processes and the use of such technologies in areas like medicine, agriculture, the environment and food. We provide a broad and flexible curriculum enabling students to choose from a diverse list of areas for specialization. These areas cover a wide range of industrial and scientific spectrum, such as computational analysis of life sciences data (e.g., DNA sequencing, gene finding, drug design), the production of functional foods based on the genomic effect of nutrients, beneficial recycling of environmental waste, biofuel production, biomedical signal and image processing.
