Student Testimonials:

“I love the multidisciplinary university experience I have at IE. I’m completing a degree in design, but I have the chance to get involved in so many different types of activities. From studying Spanish with international friends, to playing badminton every Monday, cooking meals together with my housemates or photographing every corner of picturesque Segovia, I’m able to enjoy all of my interests and get inspired by the unique, diverse students I meet every day.”  A.P

“IE University stood out for its cultural diversity and international student body. When looking more closely, the way the Bachelor in Design is structured, allowing us flexibility and space to explore different disciplines not only within design, but also in fields like business, marketing, communication and even psychology, convinced me that it was the right program for me.” M.J
