Turkey

Students with a secondary education certificate from this country cannot be admitted directly because the level is not equivalent to Dutch pre-university education. 

Note: Students who are following a French High School in Turkey can only be admissible if they receive the official French Baccalauréat Général diploma issued by the French government. The University of Twente will review if the High School is official recognized by the French government. If the above mentioned conditions are met please see the admission requirements for France.
