Personal Interview


Once you have completed the previous steps, the Admissions Committee will review your application and determine whether you can advance to the final interview phase.

The Admissions Department interviews are reserved for those who have successfully passed the admissions process. The Admissions Committee is made up of university staff members who will assess your suitability as a candidate.

The interview will allow us to get to know you better, and further assess certain qualities, such as your personality, capacity for critical thinking, method of self expression and other communication skills. Our objective is to gauge your potential as a part of IE University, developing a mutually beneficial relationship both personally and academically
