Starting in the 2010-2011 academic year Ankara University established a new program under its Faculty of Divinity in order to open its gates to international students who seek to gain a well-grounded academic education in the fields of Islamic theology and religious studies. Courses are conducted in English, and there is a one-year preparatory English language class for students who do not have the required level in the language. At the end of the fourth academic year, the students qualify for a BA degree. Information regarding the application process may be found on the Faculty’s website (www.divinity.ankara.edu .tr). Foreign students are financially supported throughout their education by the Turkish Religious Foundation.
