How to Apply

The Admissions Office is currently working remotely. This means we are unable to answer phone calls to the office at this time. We encourage you to send an email to admissions@berlin.bard.edu with any questions or to schedule a video call!

The Admissions Committee reads every application closely and individually. There’s a reason test scores are optional: we don’t believe students’ potential can be reduced to a single number.  What’s important is that your application shows that you’re curious, engaged, ready to be challenged, and committed to learning. This means that you'll be a vital contribution to our residential campus and small seminar-style approach. 

Successful applications feature genuine commitment to the liberal arts, academic promise, readiness to engage with our course offerings, and extracurricular engagement. We ask for a valid high school diploma (A Levels and IB diplomas are accepted). Applicants who are not native speakers of English must also demonstrate advanced proficiency in English so that they can meaningfully participate in seminar discussions and writing assignments.

Questions about your application? The Admissions Office is always happy to schedule a call to talk about your application. To arrange for an advising session, send an email to admissions@berlin.bard.edu
