OUR APPROACH TO ADMISSIONS

The Glion Admissions department takes a holistic approach to reviewing the application of every candidate. In addition to academic achievements, we look for candidates who exhibit a passion for the industry, leadership potential, personal drive, creativity and an international mindset.

We have an international team of dedicated admissions and enrollment counsellors who will be happy to advise candidates on the choice of program and guide them through the application process. Fill in the contact form to get in touch.

If you require a visa to study, it is important that you apply early enough to allow time for visa processing. Glion maintains a rolling admissions policy so applications are evaluated as soon as the application, with all pertinent documentation, is received.
