The requirements for application may vary for each institution.

Partner institutions sometimes post necessary information on their websites instead of sending e-mails.

Obtain, complete and send the "Application Form" of your host institution before the application deadline. Make sure that you include any other supplementary documents that are required by your host institution. Note that the application forms may be online. Information as to the exact application procedure may be found on each school's application form or website.
Any late application or missing document risks your admission. We strongly advise you to send your documents as soft copies via e-mail before sending them through surface mail. This will help secure the safe receipt of your application on time.
Another document that partner institutions might request during your application is a copy of your passport. If you do not have a passport or you need to extend it when you submit an application, you can visit our office and see Nihan Beşler, who will provide you with a letter for passport fee exemption and explain the next steps to follow.
Expect to receive your Letter of Acceptance [Kabul Mektubu] from your host institution no later than two months prior to your departure date.

In case your letter of acceptance is received by yourself directly, please bring a copy of it to the office.
Remember that the country that you are traveling to may require you to obtain a visa. Please make sure that you know the visa application requirements for that country.
