STEP 1. TAKE THE TESTS AND MEET THE ENTRY REQUIREMENTS
Check here which tests we accept and how to send the results to us. Please, note that test results need to be available by the application deadline.
STEP 2. GET IN TOUCH WITH US IF YOU HAVE QUESTIONS
The admissions team is available via email, phone, Skype, meetings on campus, fairs and info sessions. Check our calendar!
STEP 3. FILL IN THE ONLINE APPLICATION AND UPLOAD THE DOCUMENTS
The application to SSE is only submitted via our website and is free of charge. If you want to apply for more than one program, you must submit an application for each of them. Make sure the list of your preferred programs is consequent in each application - we need to know which program you prefer if you apply for several of them. You can save your application anytime and come back to it when you have the required information. Submit your application only when you feel that you have provided all the required information (including the documents that must be uploaded), no changes can be made after you submitted your application. Make sure to make it before the deadline, late applications are not accepted.
STEP 4. POSSIBLE INTERVIEW
Sometimes we need to get in touch with you if we have any questions about your application. We will then invite you to a short interview via phone or Skype and ask a couple of questions. Such an interview also offers, naturally, an occasion for you to ask questions about the program and how it could match your career goals.
STEP 5. ACCEPTANCE OR REJECTION
We do an overall assessment of all the complete applications that we receive. We look at your University degree, the courses you have taken and the grades, GRE scores, your English language skills, CV and motivation. Please note that even though you fulfil all the application requirements, it does not mean that you are automatically admitted to the PhD program, as the number of places is limited and the competition is therefore intense.
The results of the selection will be available in March and all the applicants will be notified via e-mail.
Due to the confidentiality of Admissions Committee deliberations, we regret that feedback on rejected applications is not given.
