How to Apply?

(1) Gather your application materials:

a) Undergraduate transcripts: If you don’t have an official transcript yet when applying, you may upload an unofficial copy. However, all accepted students must submit official transcripts during course registration in September before the academic year begins.

b) Undergraduate diploma: If you are applying before having completed your undergraduate program, you will need to upload a signed letter stating that you commit to graduating before you begin your master’s program at the Barcelona GSE

c) Copy of your passport

d) Curriculum vitae (2 pages maximum)

e) Statement of purpose (700 words maximum)

f) Proof of English language proficiency: Unless you are a native English speaker or have done your undergraduate degree at an English-speaking university, you must provide TOEFL, IELTS, or Cambridge scores or certificates. If you are not yet in possession of one of these language certificates, we suggest you wait to apply until you can fulfill this requirement with the documents required.

g) Optional but highly recommended: GRE General Test scores: Applicants to all programs are encouraged to provide the scores of the GRE General Test, which are often an important element for admission decisions.
A good GRE result is particularly helpful to candidates with bachelor's in social sciences or other undergraduate degrees without a strong quantitative component. In previous years, the GRE score has helped directors identify candidates with excellent potential but little previous exposure to serious mathematical training. Hence, we strongly encourage candidates to submit a GRE. (Barcelona GSE institution code for GRE General Test: 2531).

h) Two reference letters include:
– Intellectual ability
– Research abilities/experience
– Motivation to face challenges
– Capacity to work in groups
– Propensity to thrive in a new environment
