International Black Sea University is an accredited and authorized higher education institution, and offers 30 degree programs in English in three cycles: first (bachelor’s), second (master’s) and third (Ph.D.) on education and humanities, computer technologies and engineering, business management, and social sciences through specific programs. The list of the programs and fees are available here.
We are currently accepting international applications for 2017-2018 Fall Semester (that's September 2017). The deadline for completing the application package is 20 June 2016. We generally allow new applications until 50 days before the classes start, because it normally takes around 2 months for the EQE and the Ministry to process the applications.
The academic calendar is available here.
Candidates who hold an appropriate graduation certificate can apply for the relevant degree program. They will need to prove their English Language proficiency required for each cycle (degree), and prove fundamental knowledge for the program they are applying to.
Georgian citizens who completed at least one semester of their studies (staying for at least 75 days) abroad are also subject to the international admissions process (if they have successfully passed at least 1 course there).
