“Last year I helped create a student-led initiative called LEAP Conferences, to help inspire IE University students to be entrepreneurial, take action, and fulfill their potential. All students should feel capable of achieving their dreams, and everyone can be an entrepreneur in their own way”.

MARÍA HENS Spain Bachelor of Laws Class of 2018

“Before IE University I worked for 2 years at a summer camp in Ireland. I learned how to connect with people from all over the world, so I’m comfortable in IE’s diverse environment. I want to work with Interpol, and the LL.B. program gives me the advantages I need to reach that goal”.

Living in another country for a semester or two is a great way to build confidence and broaden your outlook by experiencing other cultures and making new connections. At IE University we believe that seeing your studies from new perspectives is a life-changing experience. Thatʼs why we encourage students to spend one or two semesters at one

“Going abroad and leaving your comfort zone is an essential experience in order to develop personal skills on a global scale. It was very important for me to have this kind of international mobility as a solid foundation within my studies since it has always defined my individual career path.”

Matthias Hubatschek, Bachelor in Business Administration

HONG KONG UNIVERSITY OF SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY HONG KONG, CHINA

“Studying in Hong Kong was a lifechanging experience. I immersed myself in a completely different culture, tried learning a bit of Chinese—which was very difficult!— and had the opportunity to travel. I made plenty of new friends, expanded my worldview, and broke out from my routine for a while, learning more about myself and the world I live in.”

Katharina Hamman, Bachelor in Psychology

UNIVERSITY OF TECHNOLOGY SYDNEY SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA

“I wanted to learn about a different culture, meet new people, travel somewhere I had never been before to get a hint of what it could be like to work abroad someday, and especially get out of my comfort zone. Now that I’m back, I have to say that it was probably one of the best decisions I have ever made and those six months were some of the best of my life.”

ADMISSION PROCESS Become part of IE University

At IE University, thereʼs no single deadline for applying to our undergraduate programs. We have a rolling admissions policy, which means that you can apply to IE at any point during the year. The various stages of our admission process are aimed at identifying those areas of your academic and personal profile that make you unique, and to make sure that our educational model is a good fit for you. As our programs usually fill up far in advance of the start of the academic year, we advise candidates to apply between three to six months before the semester begins. This will also allow you time to obtain any necessary visas or other qualifications. Once you have received an acceptance letter, provisional or definitive, you must make a €1,500 non-refundable deposit to reserve your spot in the bachelorʼs program of your choice.

ONLINE APPLICATION You can download the application form on our website. The form contains detailed step-by-step instructions to guide you through the process. Your application is subject to a non-refundable admission fee of ¤120. Information on how to pay this fee is included at the end of the form.

ADMISSION TEST Take IE University’s admission test or international admission tests: the SAT, ACT, CAS, or LNAT. The IE University admission test assesses the verbal, logical, and quantitative abilities you have acquired both within and outside the classroom. Above all, it centers on your ability to reason, rather than on any particular set of information. This means you don’t need to study for the test beforehand.

COMMITTEE DECISIONMAKING Once you have completed the steps above, the Admissions Committee reviews your application file, assesses your profile, and determines whether or not you can advance to the final application phase: a personal interview.

PERSONAL INTERVIEW The Admissions Department calls those who have been successful during the admission process. You

can be interviewed either on the IE University campuses in Segovia or Madrid, or at any of our 25 international offices. If you’re not easily able to reach any of these offices, we can arrange an online interview. The interview will allow us to get to know you better and assess certain qualities, such as your personality, your ability to defend your point of view and express yourself, as well as other communication skills.

FINAL COMMITTEE DECISION After the Admissions Committee reviews your complete application and reaches a final decision, you will receive written notification of your admission. Once admitted, you may apply for scholarships and financial aid, make the non-refundable deposit of ¤1,500, and submit the documentation required for enrollment. If you have any questions or would like us to explain personally how the application and admission processes work, don’t hesitate to contact us by email at university@ie.edu or by phone at + 34 921 412 428 or +34 915 689 620. Our objective is for IE University to be the best university for you, and for you to fit well with us, too.
