The admission process for the September 2023 intake at The Global College is now open!

The application process for day students is open until January 31st, 2023. For boarding students, we have a rolling application.

Application to the college, an IB school based in the heart of Madrid and with strategic alliance with IE University, involves a three-stage process. The steps are:

  • Online Application: Find out more and fill in the online form here.
  • Assessment: Consisting of an interview and a base-line test.
  • Admissions Committee Resolution: When the final decision is made.

Day students will be notified of the admissions decision in February. Those who apply for admission in the fall will be offered interviews in November and December.

For those interested in boarding, we strive to notify candidates within one month of completing their admissions process. Please be aware that boarding places are limited, so we encourage families to apply early.

Our focus at the college is providing a holistic education, ensuring students leave us with the skills needed to thrive as they continue their studies at universities around the globe before taking the first steps in their chosen professions and careers.

When we receive applications, we look for evidence of strong all-round potential. Good grades from the current school are important, but we also look at other achievements and talents such as those at extracurricular level. Other elements that play a factor are traits such as strong motivation, open-mindedness, and an international mindset.

We look forward to learning about our new candidates!
