Application steps

IBR offers an easy and convenient way to apply for the Global BA/MA. The following steps are designed to facilitate the application process:

Step 1: Consultation

Contact IBR for a consultation on the Global BA/MA. We may arrange a one-on-one or group meeting with you or call you at any time of your convenience. The purpose of a consultation is to grasp the depth of IBRs learning experiences in the Global BA/MA and to assist you in determining whether the Global BA/MA could be of benefit to you in terms of your future career aspirations.

Step 2: Personal interview

A face-to-face interview will be arranged for you either in your home country, or via web conferencing with an IBR faculty mentor at any time of your convenience. The interview will be in English.

The purpose of the interview will be to explore the fit between your vision for personal development with the requirements of enrolment and the mission of the Global BA/MA. We will allocate sufficient time for a first assessment of the expected return on investment considering your ideas on the design of learning experience 2 (bachelor studies).

Step 3: Online application

Following a successful personal interview, you will receive a preliminary login and password to start the online application for the Global BA/MA. Upon receipt the university will verify all documents.

Step 4: Admissions decision

IBR will communicate the final admissions decision within a week after you completed the online application. This is the time when we will conclude a study contract with you.

Step 5: Equipping you to study        

Expect a warm welcome from IBRs faculty mentor. Relax and let your mentor guide you in starting this exciting journey. Your mentor will engage you in designing, planning, and managing your studies, your first learning experience in the Global BA/MA.

That’s it!
