Get to know us!

Here at IE University, we want to help you make the right choice. That’s why we host a series of events throughout the year so you can get to know us firsthand. Here are some of the highlights:

How to apply

Our admission process is designed to highlight what makes you unique,

and to see if your goals and

personality make you a good fit

for our educational model. We have a

rolling admission policy, so you can

apply at any time of the year.

The application guides you through the process with step-by-step instructions. Your application is subject to a non-refundable fee of €120. Information on how to pay this fee is listed at the end of the form.

Applying Online


The test assesses your verbal, logical, and mathematical abilities. Above all, it’s focused on your ability to reason, rather than to memorize information. This means you don’t have to study for the test beforehand to do well.

Admission Test


During this phase, the Admissions Committee reviews your application and assesses your profile. This committee, made up of university faculty members, will determine whether you advance to the final application phase: an in-person interview.

Committee Decision

The interview’s goal is to confirm that it’s a good fit on both ends: to make sure that IE University is the best university for you, and that you’ll be a great addition to the school, both academically and personally.

In-person Interview

Once you have completed the application form, turned in all the documentation, passed the test, and completed the personal interview, your application and a report from your interviewer will be reviewed by the University’s Admissions Committee.

Final Committee Decision

Parents Weekend

Our students’ parents and families are

important to us, so naturally we want

them to have a close connection with IE


Once a year, IEU has the pleasure of hosting the IE University Parents’ Weekend, an event for the parents of both prospective and current students from all around the world. The event takes place at Madrid and Segovia, and lets parents discover the IEU experience.


IE Experience

Ask any college grad and they’ll tell you: their university years were some of the best and most memorable of their lives. With this in mind, we want to give you a sneak peek of life at IEU through our IE Experience event.

This event, which is only for students who have already been admitted, includes a variety of activities that aim to familiarize future students with our international university environment. You’ll even be able to attend classes and workshops led by IE University professors! Participants will gain firsthand experience of the IE University learning model, which is based on diversity and innovation with a distinctly global perspective.

In-person Interview

In-person interviews are either held at the IE University campus in Segovia or Madrid, or at any of our international offices. However, if it’s not easy for you to reach any of these offices, there is no problem: we can arrange an online interview.

The interview let us get to know you better and asses certain qualities that may not be immediately apparent, from the documentation you have provided, such as your personality, your ability to defend your point of view, the way you express yourself, and other communication skills.

Our goal is to confirm that it's a good fit on both ends to make sure that IE University is the best university for you, and that you'll be a great addition to the school booth academically and personally.

  • Be on time

    If it's a virtual intervention, make sure you are ready for the call a minutes early, in a quiet and distraction-free place.

  • Be prepared

    Think about what you want to say before the interview. Make some notes and write down any questions you may have for us.

  • Answer the question

    Answer the question being asked and try not to get off-topic.

  • If you don't understand

    If you don't understand you should ask, "Can you please repeat the question?"

  • Take your time

    Pausing before you speak is not a bad thing. This allows you to give more thoughtful answers.

  • Show your personality

    This is your opportunity to show your personality, Be natural. Be yourself.

  • Take deep breaths

    If you're feeling nervous, take a deep breath and speak slower. Speaking slowly will give you more time to think about your responses. Deep breaths will help you to relax.

  • Highlight your achievements

    Even if it's your admission application, it doesn't hurt to repeat it.

  • Use examples

    Use examples in your answers, i.e. "I'm good communicator. For example, in X situation I had to..."

  • Use key phrases

    Use key phrases that make a good impression:

    -     "I learned that..."

    -     "Something I find interesting is..."

    -     "I am very active in..."

    -     "One thing that's very important to me is..."

    -     "I'm very motivated to study... because..."

    -     "My personal goals are..."

Start sharing your ideas and making an

impact before you even begin university!

series of workshops and conferences that help them

develop different tools and share ideas about the future

of higher education.
