The admission process
At IE we employ a rolling admissions process. Admission is valid for two intakes, the initial intake of the application and the following.
Submit the application form
The online application allows us know you better in order to find out if you are the candidate we are looking for. Fill in the application in the language in which you intend to pursue the program. In order to process the application, candidates must pay a non-refundable application fee of 125€.
We meet in person or online
Those candidates who have completed and submitted their online application and pass the initial evaluation made by the Admissions Committee, will be invited to a personal interview. In this phase documentation is reviewed to evaluate and determine if the candidate meets the requirements of the program.
We take the final decision
The Admissions Committee will evaluate all aspects of the candidate’s application as a whole and reach its final decision, which will be formally communicated by letter or e-mail. Admission does not guarantee a place in the intake; to reserve seat the payment of the place reservation must be made.
