The next steps in the admissions process

Prospective students submitted their applications last week.

Today, we want to highlight the next steps of the process for those whose applications will be managed by the SAIS Europe Admissions Office.

Who are the candidates managed by SAIS Europe Admissions?

- All non-U.S. candidates who selected Bologna for their first year of graduate studies.
- U.S. candidates with a second nationality who selected Bologna for their first year of graduate studies.
- Some non-U.S. candidates who indicated they would be open to spend their first year at either the Bologna or Washington campuses.

As part of the process, applicants will do an interview. In coming days, those whose dossiers are complete, will receive an email notification on their interview. Interviews are conducted in person, over the phone or  via Skype.

Over the course of the next few weeks, members of the Admissions Committee will travel to several locations in Europe and the U.S.. However, given the geographic spread of our applicant pool, most interviews will be conducted over the phone or via Skype.

In-person interviews will take place in the following cities:

- Bologna, Italy
- Brussels, Belgium
- Lille, France
- Paris, France
- London, UK
- Vienna, Austria
- Frankfurt, Germany
- Istanbul, Turkey
- Athens, Greece
- Washington, DC, USA
- New York City, USA

Stay tuned for more information on the dates as well as on the interview itself.

In addition to the interview, those interested in applying for financial support will need to keep an eye on the deadline for financial aid applications, due on February 15, 2016. By that date, applicants managed by SAIS Europe Admissions will need to provide the complete financial aid form and the supporting documents. For questions, please send an email
