Double Degree Opportunities for Istanbul Okan University Students

Having successfully passed the Pearson quality audit, Istanbul Okan University is the first Turkish university to be authorized to issue a Pearson-approved International Certificate (HNC - High National Certificate) and International Diploma (HND - High National Diploma).

HND is a diploma that has a position between associate degree and bachelor's degree. Our students with HND will have the right to receive a second bachelor's degree from that university by studying for an additional year in the same area at contracted universities in countries such as the EU, USA and Canada, mainly in the UK, if they wish.

In the programs for which the HND diploma certificate will be determined, it will be given to the students who request it along with their undergraduate diplomas. Our graduates with HND will be entitled to receive their second diplomas from universities that accept HND (England, Italy, Canada, USA, etc.) by studying for one more year.

In addition, students who have received an International Diploma (HND-High National Diploma) by studying in different countries will be accepted to our corresponding undergraduate programs at Istanbul Okan University and complete their undergraduate education and receive their diplomas.

HNC / HND accreditation will not only offer our students the opportunity of getting double degree, but will also contribute to the visibility of Istanbul Okan University's Pearson education solutions in the world of activity and to the expansion of international promotion areas.
