The application form is common for all students interested in the programme and forms the basis of your admissions process at ISPP.

  1. We follow a rolling selection process within each round i.e. the earlier you apply within any round, the faster your application is processed for shortlisting, immersion and decision
  2. Early applicants have the benefit of having more time to take their decisions for acceptance
  3. Early applications also have a better probability of getting selected because the number of seats that are available are higher in the beginning

The submission of the application is the first step in the admissions process.

Eligible Students

The 1-year programme in Policy, Design & Management is open to any graduate looking to take a comprehensive, Masters equivalent professional training programme. It is open both to early-career working professionals as well as students completing or recently graduated from college.

Students are welcome to apply from across the spectrum, regardless of past work-experience, present career or choice of discipline at the Bachelor’s level. There are no minimum academic criteria either. The ISPP is looking for a diverse, intellectually curious and socially conscious student body open to a wide variety of career options relating to public policy.
