El objetivo del proceso de selección de ISDE es comprobar que todos los estudiantes tienen un nivel homogéneo. De este modo garantizamos que puedan seguir un ritmo de trabajo similar, adaptado a las exigencias de cada programa.
The objective of the ISDE selection process is to guarantee that all participating students have a similar level, so that they are all comfortable meeting the demands of the program and keeping up with the pace of the work.
Once a candidate has demonstrated their desire to partake in the master's program, by means of submitting all the personal information required, they will be assigned a coordinator from the admissions department who will take charge of the progress of their application, providing any and all information that is needed and answering any questions that the candidate may have.
The fee for taking the admission tests is €150 (non-refundable) to be paid at the administration office of the ISDE on the day the tests are taken.
The phases of the admissions process for candidates are as follows:
Phase 1: REQUEST
The candidate must complete the online application form.
Depending on the program you choose, the system will indicate the documentation to be included in the form.
Once the application has been sent, a coordinator will request the rest of the documentation, in case you have not already included it in the online application form, for the correct formalization of your application. You can send it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Curriculum vitae*
- Letter of motivation*
- A copy of your university degree
- Your academic record
- At least one and preferably two letters of recommendation from people who know the candidate in a professional or academic context.
*NOTICE: The CV and letter of motivation are mandatory to attach (regardless of the masters chosen) in the online application form.
Phase 2: ADMISSION TESTS
After all of the documentation that makes up the candidature is supplied and it is determined that the candidate meets the minimum standards required, they will then be invited to take a series of written and oral tests.
It takes place at the headquarters of the ISDE, where the candidate will be cited for the written and oral tests in a single session.
- Psychometric test
- Test of legal knowledge and skills
- English language level test
Once these tests are completed, the candidate will have a personal interview with a member of the admissions department covering their academic and professional history so far.
After the personal interview there will be a tribunal composed of a member of the ISDE management and two members of the master's academic committee. This will evaluate the candidate's technical knowledge on subjects related to the contents of the master's program, as well as interpersonal skills and emotional intelligence.
Both during the personal interview and the tribunal, the candidate is expected to speak in either Spanish or English.
Phase 3: EVALUATION OF THE APPLICATION
The admissions committee meets twice a month to evaluate all of the applications received, therefore the candidates will quickly know the result of their application for a master's place.
If the admissions committee feels the need they may request additional documentation from candidates in order to clarify certain aspects of their academic or professional history.
