İstanbul University is internationally renowned and gives great importance to internationalisation. Therefore, the university administers the International Student Exam (IUYOS] in Turkey and abroad to place both foreign and Turkish students who completed high school abroad on undergraduate and associate degree programmes. The quota for international students is limited and is determined by the Higher Education Institution (YOK]. According to their preferences and examination results, students are eligible to enrol at İstanbul University and many other universities across Turkey. In this sense, IUYOS can be considered as a placement exam.
In 2014, more than 6,000 candidates took İstanbul University's International Student Examination (IUYOS) both in İstanbul and in 13 centres around the world. The results of this examination are accepted not only by İstanbul University but also by 93 public and private universities throughout Turkey. In 2015 the IUYOS examination is scheduled to be held in
İstanbul, Erzurum, Van, Gaziantep, Almaty, Amman, Ashgabat, Athens, Baku, Berlin, Cologne, Bern, Beirut, Bishkek, Cape Town, Dubai, Erbil, Islamabad, Kabul, Cairo, Kuala Lumpur, Khartoum, Paris, Prishtina, Riyadh, Jeddah, Sanaa’a, Sarajevo, Tehran, Tbilisi, Skopje and Washington DC.
