ADMISSIONS

1. Are there changes planned for next year’s programs (intake) due to the Covid-19 crisis?

As we enter a second Covid-19 wave worldwide at IE University we are more prepared than ever. Our campus re-opened in July 2020. By now, our health protocol, preventive action plan, and testing capacity is solid, and we continue to improve every day. We conduct tests daily to all IE community members and we closely monitor the situation on every single classroom. Therefore, we are expecting our programs to start on the original dates, and we do not foresee any changes to this. Besides our activity face-to-face on campus, our Liquid Learning methodology allows our students to follow the program remotely if their circumstances require so, without compromising the quality of the learning experience.

Our main goal is to assure the quality of the program, maintain student engagement, and continue faculty preparation. The admissions teams will be in close contact with the academic teams so that we can inform all students and candidates in a timely manner regarding any updates on their program calendar or schedule.

We also invite you to navigate our website coronavirus.ie.edu where you will be able to find all details related to our health protocol, safety measures on campus, among many other important information.

2. Due to the current situation, can I defer enrollment to the next intake of my program even though I have already paid the place reservation deposit?

As long as this crisis lasts, IE University will remain as flexible and supportive as possible. Any student who would like to defer may do so by notifying the admissions team no later than 30 days before the official programs start date. Our usual process dictates that, once a candidate defers to a future intake, the change requires paying the place reservation deposit again while the original deposit is deducted from the overall cost of tuition. However, given the exceptional nature of the circumstances, the Admissions Committee will evaluate every transfer request in order to decide on the possibility of using the same place reservation deposit to reserve a place in the next intake. Please contact your Admissions Team as soon as possible if you would like to opt for this. Please note that all deferral requests officially communicated to the Admissions Team less than 30 days before the program start date, will have to go through a special withdrawals committee before communicating a final decision.

Even though we are looking to remain flexible, we evaluate on a case by case basis and full or partial refunds are not guaranteed.

3. Can I extend the deadline for submitting my place reservation fee for the next intake in order to see how the covid-19 continues to unfold?

Yes, it will be reviewed on a case by case basis and only if there are still available spots in the class. However, we suggest that you always get in touch with your Admissions Team contacts directly to address your specific needs.

4. If I have beed admitted but have not paid my place reservation deposit yet, is there a specific deadline to decide whether I would like to postpone to the following intake due to the covid-19 crisis?

Our Admissions & Enrollment team will be following up with you closely so feel free to address your concerns with them at any point in time. In order to transfer to the next intake, candidates must inform the team no later than a week before the beginning of their programs. By default, your application is valid for two consecutive intakes. If his is your first deferral the transfer to next intake will be automatic. However, if this is your second deferral the decision will be handled by the Admissions Committee and therefore, we do not guarantee it will be accepted.

5. If the covid-10 crisis does not improve by the start-date of the program can I ask for a refund of my place reservation deposit?

As we enter a second Covid-19 wave worldwide at IE University we are more prepared than ever. Our campus re-opened in July 2020. By now, our health protocol, preventive action plan, and testing capacity is solid, and we continue to improve every day. We conduct tests daily to all IE community members and we closely monitor the situation on every single classroom. Therefore, we are expecting our programs to start on the original dates, and we do not foresee any changes to this. Besides our activity face-to-face on campus, our Liquid Learning methodology allows our students to follow the program remotely if their circumstances require so, without compromising the quality of the learning experience.

Our main goal is to assure the quality of the program, maintain student engagement, and continue faculty preparation. The Admissions Team will be in close contact with the academic teams so that we can inform all students and candidates in a timely manner regarding any updates on their program calendar or schedule.

Still, requesting a Place Reservation deposit refund under the Covid-19 crisis is possible. For our special Covid-19 Withdrawals Committee to evaluate the case, the following situations must be proved by the student:

  1. That Spain or your country of residence are subject to health or mobility restrictions at the moment of requesting the refund that impedes the student’s mobility to Madrid or Segovia campus to study the program.
  2. Unforeseen financial difficulties arising from the personal, company, or family situation of the student and that are accredited in such way that the student is unable to meet the tuition cost at IE.

If IE University is among your top choices, we therefore encourage you to secure your spot in the program that interests you.

6. Will the covid-19 outbreak affect my application to IE University? Can I do the entire admissions process online, including the test?

The Covid-19 outbreak will not affect your application. We have implemented an application process that is 100% online. IE University has been working on innovative methodologies throughout the years that have now allowed us to face this critical situation efficiently. Regardless of where you are in the world, you can complete the entire application process online, including the IE Global Admissions Test. We want you to stay safe without having to put your future on hold.  Our 30 international offices will continue to support you through the application process and are available by phone, email, and videoconference.

Events (such as master classes or other initiatives) will be offered exclusively online, so that you can continue to learn about IE University and connected with our community.

7. I won’t be able to take the IELTS, Cambridge Advanced, or TOEFL tests due to covid-19 restrictions. What can I do?

Even though testing centers are slowly returning to normal operations. We are aware of the changes that have been made to a few of the English language tests and that assessment arrangements and the availability of results for international qualifications are likewise subject to change. In the event that your program requires an English language certificate, we would like to remind you that IE University also accepts the Duolingo English Test, which can be taken fully online. You must obtain 120 points or higher.

8. If I am still completing my bachelor’s (or equivalent) degree and my studies/exams have been interrupted by the covid-19 crisis, how do I complete my application process? Can I submit my full transcript and diploma at a later date?

In this case, we suggest you continue with the admissions process as normal. When the time comes, our Admissions Committee will make a final decision based on your particular case and that of your university.

9. What happens in the case of visa delays?

The Student Services Team is here to support you throughout the visa application process. Contact us by phone number (+34 91 568 97 50) or by email (student.services@ie.edu).

10. What are the current coronavirus measures imposed by the Spanish authorities?

IE University is in close contact with Madrid and Spanish authorities and are strictly following their guidelines. For more information about the health protection measures on campus visit our COVID-19 website: coronavirus.ie.edu.

11. If I have already been awarded an IE Funded scholarship and decide to postpone to the next intake because of the coronavirus, can I transfer my scholarship or do I need to reapply for financial aid?

If you decide to defer to the upcoming intake, please contact the admissions department. The admissions team will ask the Financial Aid Committee to evaluate your case and they will decide whether your scholarship is transferred, or you will have to formally reapply for financial aid.

12. Will the shift to online, due to Covid-19, affect the diploma that I receive on graduation day?

Despite the adjustments made to both the full-time master and the blended programs, graduates will receive the same diploma as they would under normal circumstances. The changes in program format have no effect on the diploma because the amount and quality of learning sessions, content, peers, and faculty remain unchanged.

13. Will I have the same professors online as I would in the face-to-face format?

The vast majority of our professors will be the same online as in the traditional face-to-face format. In fact, since IE University has more than 20 years of experience in online learning, 70% of our professors already had previous experience with teaching online, and thus easily shifted their full-time courses to the online format. Furthermore, because of the temporary move of all programs online last March 2020, we have expanded our training for professors in order to ensure the best online experience for our students.

14. How is IE University managing the Covid-19 crisis now and in the foreseeable future? Will more programs move online as opposed to face-to-face? Will any programs be postponed?

Our main goal is to protect our community and students, while maintaining open communication with all our IE University community as the situation progressed. For this reason, we have established a very clear and strict health protocol we commit to on-Campus and highly encourage our IE community members and students to comply off-Campus.

We have adapted our facilities (more information here) and implemented a Covid-19 testing system by working closely with our medical team. This system may include moving students who are going to class on a face-to-face format to online format for a few days while the testing conducted. This allows us to assure a proper control of the positive cases and safety on and off campus. Therefore, we do not plan to move programs that are face-to-face to a 100% online format nor we are planning to postpone start dates.

15. Due to Covid-19, will the admissions application fee be waived?

No. Since the start of the Covid-19 crisis, we have offered candidates a Fully Online Application Process (FOAP), and thus the entire application process remains unchanged.

16. How will IE University’s career services prepare students to find employment in a post COVID-19 world?

Our Talent & Careers team is committed to providing high-quality services no matter the circumstances. We will continue to provide online advising and education, and since March 2020 we have already hosted two Virtual Talent Forums with more than 130 companies participating each time. We continue to organize job search groups, mentoring services, and virtual networking sessions as well as engage our alumni though the Career Champions program that connects students with alumni in their desired sector/industry.

17. Due to COVID-19, are there waivers when it comes to the entrance exam (GMAT, etc)?

No. As of now, the IE Global Admissions Test, GMAT, and GRE are available in online formats. Therefore, the entrance exam requirement remains mandatory in those programs that require it.

18. Can I connect with other students enrolled in my program and discover what others are thinking about this Covid-19 situation?

Yes. Upon admission, you will receive an invite to join our Slack channels designed to connect all admitted and enrolled students.

19. Is IE University collaborating with other schools in regards to COVID-19?

Yes, now more than ever, IE will continue to participate in events in which COVID-19 is a central topic – how it has and continues to evolve as well as its impact on education, business, geopolitics, and the future of work, among other trends – and to coordinate with European schools in order to develop research and an understanding of the post COVID-19 world.

20. WHAT SERVICES WILL CAMPUS LIFE PROVIDE, GIVEN THE CURRENT COVID-19 RESTRICTIONS? HAVE NETWORKING AND EXTRACURRICULAR ACTIVITIES RESUMED NORMALLY SINCE THE CAMPUS REOPENING?

Campus Life will continue to support the IE University community and its many student clubs. Both IE campuses in Madrid and Segovia are open and all activities are taking place in compliance with the recommendations from the health authorities. For the moment, most activities are conducted in a hybrid format which allows students to attend events either face-to-face or remotely.

Lastly, the Campus Life team has created a platform to keep students and all of the IE University community inspired.

 

FINANCIAL AID

Applicants

1. My family’s economic situation has been/will be affected by Covid-19. Will IE help me financially?

Economic need is always taken into consideration when evaluating scholarship applications. The IE University Scholarship Committee is aware that many of our incoming students and their families have been affected by the recent circumstances and will take this into account. Please mention any difficulties you are experiencing in your application.

2. My family and I are not willing to pay the place reservation deposit until we have a clearer idea of how this situation will develop. Will I lose my scholarship if I don’t pay?

If you are unable to commit at this stage given the circumstances, kindly send an email to financialaid@ie.edu so that we can evaluate whether a deadline extension is possible.

3. Will there be a delay in processing my scholarship application due to Covid-19?

No. The Financial Aid Department is still fully functional. We are currently taking about two weeks to respond to students once they have submitted a complete application.

4. I am having some trouble gathering the necessary financial documentation due to the coronavirus situation. What can I do?

Please send us an email or give us a call so that we can discuss your situation and look into alternatives.

5. I have applied for a loan with one of IE’s partner banks. Will the interest rates that were promoted prior to the coronavirus crisis be maintained?

Yes. As of now, we have not been informed otherwise.

6. Are you offering any additional aid/scholarships specifically aimed at helping people in light of the COVID-19 situation?

IE University and IE Foundation are making every effort to mitigate the unforeseen financial stress and challenges that both our students and incoming students, or their families, may be facing as a direct result of the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic.

That is why, supplemental to our ongoing generous scholarship programs, we have established the IE Resilience Scholarship Fund (Covid-19). The fund aims to support talented candidates and incoming students joining IE in 2020-2021 and who, due to COVID-19 pandemic, are facing particularly financial challenging situations associated with job loss, income reduction, business revenues drops, non-continuation of sponsorship support, or other exceptional circumstances beyond their control. This fund will also be open for admitted candidates or incoming students who might be eligible for an IE scholarship revision due to a sudden and unanticipated change in their financial situation related to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Financial Office team is available to understand your current financial circumstances – or any sudden substantial change to those circumstances – and to work with you to determine which financial aid options might be available and appropriate on a case-by-case basis.  Please reach out to us at FinancialAid@ie.edu (masters) or financialaid.ieu@ie.edu (undergraduate).

7. ARE THERE ANY NEW DEADLINES FOR SCHOLARSHIPS FOR PEOPLE WHO WOULD NEED FINANCIAL AID IN THE LIGHT OF THE COVID-19 SITUATION?

As a general rule, there is no deadline for scholarship applications, so you may apply any time prior to the start of your program (and following your admission application submission if applying for a master program and after being admitted if you are applying for a bachelor degree.) Funds are still available for programs starting in the upcoming intake.

STUDENTS SERVICES

1. Are Spanish Consulates open?

Yes. If for any extremely exceptional reason your local Spanish Consulate has decided to close, they would announce it on their website, or they would tell you by phone. (Keep in mind that Consulates’ main purpose is to help Spanish nationals, so they should be operative these days and providing regular services).

2. What do I do if my Consulate is not replying to me?

Given the volume of work they still have these days, it may take longer for them to reply to emails. Instructions for visa applications are available on most Consulate website, or they may redirect you to their external services provider (BLS), so keep this in mind because sometimes the information you are seeking is available in just a click! If you are still unable to find what you are looking for, you may ask your local IE office or Student Services. If you have already submitted your visa application and would like to know whether it has been accepted, you should first consider that the average processing time is 4-6 weeks (student visas) or 2-4 weeks (tourist visas), and that these timings may lengthen given the current situation.

3. Will the visa application deadlines change?

Deadlines remain the same. Candidates should consider that the average processing time is 4-6 weeks (student visas) or 2 weeks (tourist visas), and that these timings may lengthen given the situation. According to the current regulation, candidates may apply for their student visa once they have paid their place reservations and only 90 days before the beginning of the program. Tourist visas applications can be submitted 180 days before the start of the program. As some Consulates are admitting student visa applications exceptionally 180 days before the start of the program, we recommend that candidates contact their local consulate as soon as possible to confirm what deadlines and timings they are applying.

4. Will I get hard copies of my visa supporting documents?

At the moment, due to the exceptional circumstances in which our country and many others are currently in, Student Services department has limited access to campus, as a consequence of reduction of face-to-face staff, which affects document issuance. Thus, we are providing electronic documents to our students for their student visa application. Please note the Spanish Consular authorities have confirmed that Consulates should be accepting print outs of the documents that Student Services will send you by email. At the same time, you can ask Student Services to send your local Spanish Consulate confirmation emails and authentication of your visa documents.

5. If I do not receive my student visa before classes start due to heavy workload at the consulate, will my absences be excused?

Please contact Student Services if the beginning of the classes is approaching and you have not yet received your student visa, despite having submitted your visa application in time. We will do our best to contact your local Spanish Consulate and to try to expedite your visa process. If this does not work either, or you simply submitted your application late, you will need to contact your academic team to explain your situation and determine what options are available to you.

6. Can I return to Spain if my NIE/authorization has expired while I was out of the country due to the coronavirus? What if my student permit or NIE renewal was in process when I left the country?

Do not go to the airport if your travel documentation is not up to date. Please contact your Spanish Consulate well in advance before your scheduled return to Spain to work out a solution. They may ask you to apply for a tourist visa, a new student visa, or may provide you with some sort of travel document due to the exceptional circumstances.

7. Can I receive my NIE card by mail in my home country?

No. NIE cards must be collected in person at the Police station where you applied for it. No exceptions can be made in this respect. If you were about to collect your NIE card before leaving Spain and do not hold a valid authorization to return, contact your local Spanish Consulate and explain your circumstances so that they can give you the best advice on how to return to Spain.

8. Can I renew my NIE in my home country?

No. You can only do so in person, in Spain. Students that are currently in their home countries and do not have the necessary documentation to come back to Spain should contact their local Spanish Consulates now to enquire about their options once the quarantine ends.

9. Given the situation, where can I verify if I will be able to enter Spain?

We recommend you contact your local Spanish Consulate now to inquire about your options.

10. HOW SHOULD I PROCEED IF MY CONSULATE IS CLOSED? 

It is unlikely that Spanish Consulates have closed but it is possible that, given the current situation, some are prioritizing the cases of Spanish citizens and thus may not accept visa applications until a future date. If you cannot reach your local Consulate by mail, phone, or through the visa services provider (BLS), please get in touch with Student Services (student.services@ie.edu for Masters; ieustudentservices@ie.edu for Bachelors).

11. THE CONSULATE SAID THEY WILL NOT ACCEPT ELECTRONIC COPIES OF THE DOCUMENTS, WHAT SHOULD I DO?

Please contact Student Services Master Team or the University team and we will help you communicate with the Consulate, as they should be accepting electronic copies.

12. WHEN SHOULD I PLAN TO TRAVEL TO SPAIN?

Before booking a ticket, we always recommend students contact their local  Consulate first, to know 1) if there are any travel restrictions that would prevent them from being able to enter Spain and 2) if they have the necessary documentation to be accepted into the country.

13. DOES THE EU TRAVEL BAN AFFECT STUDENTS?

At the moment, students with valid documentation are among the exceptions made to the general travel ban, for which you should be able to travel to Spain (please note this exception in made to students with valid documentation, i.e. NIE and/or student visa). However, and due to the rapidly changing situation, we recommend you contact your local Spanish Consulate to verify if you can travel or not.

14. WHAT ARE THE DOCUMENTS YOU NEED FROM ME TO START MY VISA APPLICATION?

Once your place has been reserved in the program, you will receive a welcome email with a link to our visa questionnaire which will help you provide us with all the necessary information. To know what additional documents you need to submit to your Consulate, we recommend checking their website or contacting them directly. Please keep in mind that, while we provide you with some of the necessary documents, it is your responsibility to ensure you are submitting all the correct documents to your local Consulate.

15. WHOM SHOULD I CONTACT AND WHEN SHOULD I START THE PROCESS FOR MY VISA?

Depending on your Consulate, you may be able to start the visa process within the 180 or 90 days before your expected arrival in Spain. Thus, to know how far in advance you should book a visa appointment and prepare your documentation, we recommend you contact your local Spanish Consulate well in advance.

16. DO I HAVE TO WAIT FOR THE COVID-19 SITUATION TO BE OVER AND THE CONSULATES TO RE-OPEN TO START THE PROCESS OF VISA APPLICATION OR I CAN DO IT ONLINE?

You should start your visa application process as soon as allowed by the Consulate (180 or 90 days before the beginning of the program, depending on the Consulate). Up to the date, visa applications can only be made in person at the Consulates. However, we highly recommend checking their websites for any updates or news about the process (some of them may allow some steps to be done online or by post).

17. WILL I BE ABLE RETURN HOME DURING WINTER BREAK? 

Please bear in mind that this is a constantly evolving situation, but as per today students with up to date documentation should be able to travel back home. We recommend that you keep close communication with your local Consulate to be aware of current travel bans.

However, we encourage students to avoid making non-essential travel plans until the situation becomes clearer.
 
We would like to remind you that as a non-European citizen, you must have either a valid NIE card, student visa or an Authorization to Return document in order to return to Spain.

18. WILL IE UNIVERSITY SUPPORT ME IN GETTING MY VISA MORE QUICKLY THAN USUAL?

We are doing our best to coordinate directly with Consulates in order to facilitate the visa process, but please keep in mind that, since the issuance of a visa has its own timeline which varies by Consulate and country, the speed at which your visa is granted is ultimately dependent on each Consulate.

19. IF A VISA IS SECURED BUT THE STUDENT CAN’T ATTEND IN FALL, WILL THE VISA BE RECOGNIZED FOR THE SPRING EVEN THOUGH THEY HAVE A 90-DAY LIMIT?

If you find yourself in this situation, contact your local Spanish Consulate. They will be able to give you official, up-to-date information about your options.

20. MY HOME COUNTRY DOES NOT REQUIRE A VISA TO ENTER SPAIN. CAN I SIMPLY REENTER SPAIN WITH MY PASSPORT? 

Although we are currently living in exceptional circumstances, immigration laws still apply to non-EU citizens. Thus, those who wish to travel should keep their legal documentation up-to-date. Students who are currently in their home countries and, for whatever reason, do not have the necessary documentation to return to Spain or enter the country for the first time, should contact their local Spanish Consulates as soon as possible to enquire about their options once quarantine ends.

21. I HAD COVID-19. WILL THE CONSULATE ASK ME FOR A MEDICAL CERTIFICATE? 

At the moment, and to our knowledge, you must submit a medical certificate of good health when applying for a student visa. For now, this certificate does not include specifications regarding COVID-19 but, moving forward, it’s possible that you may be asked to prove that you either don’t have the virus or that you have successfully recovered from it. The Consulate or the visa services provider will inform you about this specific requirement, if necessary.

22. ARE SPANISH HEALTH INSURANCE PROVIDERS STILL PROVIDING COVERAGE AND HOW?

Spanish health insurance providers like Sanitas, Adeslas, and Cigna are still providing regular coverage to its users. If you require assistance, we encourage you to contact your health insurance provider and follow their instructions.

23. FOR EUROPEANS: I’M PLANNING TO BRING MY EHIC CARD, IS THE SPANISH NATIONAL HEALTHCARE SYSTEM FUNCTIONING NORMALLY?

Yes, it is. However, due to the exceptional circumstances, the Spanish Ministry of Health discourages requesting non urgent medical services.

24. CAN I APPLY FOR THE EHIC IF I HAVE A EUROPEAN PASSPORT, BUT DON’T LIVE IN A EUROPEAN COUNTRY? 

You must have a residence in a European country in order to apply for the EHIC, and you must apply in person.

25. WILL I NEED TO BE IN QUARANTINE WHEN I ARRIVE TO SPAIN?

It depends on when you arrive to Spain and how the Covid-19 situation evolves. Please consult your local Spanish Consulate before travelling to Spain.

26. SHOULD I RESERVE MY HOUSING ALREADY? 

We at Student Services believe that it is never too early to start thinking about where you’d like to live in Madrid and Segovia. We suggest that you start by figuring out in which area you want to live, as well as which type of housing serves your needs (student residences, flats, etc.). If you are interested in a particular residence, we recommend that you contact the residence manager or landlord directly to discuss any queries that you may have, such as availability, potential refund policies if you decide to book now, etc. If you are interested in a flat, we also recommend getting in touch with the landlord as early as possible, though please keep in mind that they may not accept reservations as far in advance as residences do.

27. WILL THE RESIDENCE GIVE ME A REFUND IF I AM NOT ABLE TO ATTEND IE UNIVERSITY DUE TO COVID-19?

As we are under exceptional circumstances, most of the residences are reevaluating their policies. Since the residences that we recommend are not owned by IE Universities and each one has its own unique policies, we strongly encourage students to contact them directly in order to understand specific cancellation and deferral policies. Likewise, the IE University Student Services team is available at ieustudentservices@ie.edu and is in regular contact with the recommended Student Residences in order to be able to inform students.

28. ARE STUDENT RESIDENCES FOLLOWING HEALTH GUIDELINES TO AVOID THE SPREADING OF THE VIRUS?

Yes. Although the residences and other companies specialized in accommodation are not managed by IE University, they all abide by the health guidelines laid out by the World Health Organization and Spanish health authorities. Such guidelines include precautions including thorough and routine disinfecting, staggered meal services, social distancing among employees and residents, restricted use of the common spaces, and more. For specific information, please contact the residence in which you are interested and IE University Student Services at ieustudentservices@ie.edu.

29. IF I MAKE A RESERVATION THROUGH BEYOND CAMPUS AND CANNOT COME IN THE END, WHAT WILL BE THEIR REFUND POLICY?

Beyond Campus will be flexible with their refund policy due to circumstances out of the students’ control (i.e. border closures, inability to obtain a visa, etc.) Such flexibility could entail up to 50% reimbursement of the reservation fee, depending on how the situation has progressed due to COVID-19. We always recommend that you consult them directly about specific conditions before making your reservation.

30. IF I DEFERRED MY ADMISSION SHOULD I APPLY FOR A NEW STUDENT VISA?

In this case, the students should consult their local Spanish Consulate to make sure they have the right documentation arrive in Spain for the September intake.

31. WILL THE STUDENT SERVICES “LANDING IN MADRID” SESSIONS BE CONDUCTED ONLINE? 

If necessary, we will hold our Landing in Madrid sessions online and will, regardless of session format, send an email with details before your program begins.

32. WILL THE SPANISH LANGUAGE CLASSES BE CONDUCTED ONLINE?

For those students who prefer it, online classes are always an option. Incoming students will have two choices for the Spanish language classes: Hybrid learning (online + on-campus) or Busuu (an online learning platform) We will continue with this model in 2021, so that students can decide how to approach this learning experience.

33. IF I PLAN TO BRING MY FAMILY (PARTNER/CHILDREN) TO SPAIN WHEN I BEGIN THE FULL-TIME PROGRAM, WILL THIS MAKE IT MORE DIFFICULT TO ACQUIRE A VISA?

It is common for students that have a family to travel with their children and/or wife/husband. When you receive the welcome e-mail and survey from our Student Services Department, specify any family members who will be joining you in Spain and attach a scanned document with information of each member (everything is explained in detail in the survey.) We will then make a set of documents specific for you and your family so that you can apply for the visa together.
