University information

The Process

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 you fit in with our educational model.

At IE, we don’t have a specific deadline for admission into any of our programs. We have a rolling admissions policy, which means that you can apply to IE University at any time of the year. However, given the limited number of places in the programs and the diverse student body, it is highly recommended you present your application several months prior to program commencement. 

The admission process usually takes between three and four weeks and is divided into four main phases:

  1. Online Application & Supporting Documents
  2. Admission Test
  3. Online Assessment
  4. Personal Interview
  5. Final Committee Decision


IE Financial Aid

Studying at IE is an investment of time, effort and financial resources. To help students manage the funding of their program, IE Financial Aid provides access to scholarships and student loan programs. Financial aid applications are received on a rolling basis, but certain scholarships do have specific deadlines. It is strongly recommended to apply as soon as possible, funds are limited and therefore the closer the intake is, the lower the number of funds available.

To request financial aid, it is necessary to complete our online form available at ie.edu/financialaid once the admissions form has been submitted and always prior to the start of the program.


Admission Days

Admission Days are unique combined events taking place at IE's international offices, where the participants will have an amazing opportunity of getting a feel of what it means to be part of the IE University community. The applicants who wish to accelerate their admissions process will have the chance to finalize it in one day. What makes an admission day unique?

  • Attend informative sessions regarding important aspects of your admissions process
  • Answer all your questions by the IE University representatives in person
  • Meet with staff, alumni and faculty
  • Take the IE University admission’s test
  • Have your interview on the same day
  • Experience our teaching methodology
