Divinity (International Students)
Ankara University established a new program in 2006 under its Faculty of Divinity in order to open its gates to international students of Turkish descent. Courses are conducted in Turkish (%70) and Arabic (%30), and there is a one-year preparatory Arabic language class for students who do not have the required level in the language. The program educates students to provide religious services for Turks living in foreign countries. Students are accepted into this program through a meticulous selection process conducted by the Faculty of Divinity in collaboration with the Presidency of Religious Affairs. Applicants must hold a high school degree awarded in their countries. Students are financially supported throughout their education by the Turkish Religious Foundation.
