Applicants who do not hold a bachelor’s degree in Psychology are expected to have taken the following courses during their undergraduate education:
- General Psychology
- Statistics (1 semester)
- Social Psychology or Industrial/Organizational Psychology
If applicants have not taken these courses but are successful in passing the exam and interview process, they will be accepted into the Academic Preparatory Program. Candidates accepted on this basis can either complete these prerequisite coursework through the undergraduate courses offered within the Psychology department at Istanbul Bilgi University or within the program of their choice.
