Biostatistics

To be accepted into the program; the ones who graduated from Faculty of Science, Statistics, Mathematics, Biology, Economics and Administrative Sciences Faculty of Economics and Business Administration and the graduates from a 4-year-college or faculty who are competent to have education in Biostatistics are accepted for this department.

The total number of credits to be taken in the course of the semester is at least 24 credits. In addition, if appropriate, students might be required to take courses from other departments by the department

The language of education is both Turkish and English and the programme which will be carried out is a Master’s Degree Programme with thesis. Graduates who want to apply for the program must be graduated from the relevant departments of faculties and they must have at least 70 points in the type of the applicant’s department from the Entrance Exam of Academic Personnel and Graduate Education (ALES), which conducted by Student Selection and Placement Center (SSPC). The candidate must have the score of 50 points from YDS (Foreign Language Exam) or KPDS (Foreign Language Proficiency Examination for State Employees) or language exam of the Eastern University. In case of not submitting language proficiency report during the application, it should be submitted 1 year after provisional acceptance.

If necessary, grade-point average and interview report may be evaluated during the acceptance of Master’s Degree Programme, as well. The matters relating to this assessment and other documents such as a reference letter and a composition explaining why the candidate desires to study in the field are required to be submitted.
