Frequently Asked Questions – FAQs

Here are the most frequently asked questions about ESADE degrees student loans and admissions tests.  If you want to know about about something not covered in the FAQs, simply contact the Admissions Office.

Student Loans

What happens if I apply for a loan and finally I don’t enrol on an ESADE course?

There is no fee for early termination.

I have to pay 25% of the tuition fee to book my place on the course and I want to apply for a loan but I’m not sure whether I’ll need another loan to cover the rest of the tuition fees.

No problem. You can apply for a loan for the necessary amount when you have to book your place and then later you can apply for another loan for the remainder.

How much has to be repaid each month?

Banco Sabadell is very flexible. You can decide how much to repay in each instalment and when to pay: once a month, every two months or once a quarter. The amount of each instalment is agreed upon by each applicant directly with the bank.

What happens if I apply for a loan when I reserve a place on a course but then fail the Spanish university entrance examination or if I am otherwise unable to join the degree programme?

In this case the loan would be repaid in advance (early termination charge: 0%). The only cost would be the interest charged during the term of the loan.

Can repeater students apply for a loan if they are not registered for a full programme?

Banco Sabadell has no objection to providing loans for repeater students who are only taking some subjects.

Esade Admissions Test

Can I prepare for this test?

Esade's test does not assess knowledge. Therefore, there is no subject matter that can be studied in advance in order to get a good grade.

However, you can consult a sample test on this website in order to have an idea of the kind of things you might be asked.


Bachelor of Business Administration-BBA admission test (in Spanish or English)

Bachelor in Law admission test (in Spanish)

Bachelor in Law & Bachelor in Global Governance admission test (in Spanish)

Double degree in Business Administration and Law admission test (in Spanish)

Bachelor in Global Governance, Economics & Legal Order

What grade do I need in order to be accepted?

You do not pass or fail the Esade admissions test. It is simply used to create a profile of the applicant who wishes to study for a Bachelor's degree at Esade. This is why you can only take the admissions test once every academic year. 

The admissions test is only one of the elements taken into consideration during the admissions process. Equal weighting is given to the information provided on your application form and in your academic record.

Can I re-sit the test?

Not in the same academic year. You can only take the test once in any single academic year.

Is the test compulsory?

If you are applying for admission to the BBA (Bachelor of Business Administration) or the Double Degree in Business Administration and Law, you can sit the  SAT or ACT tests instead. These admissions tests are taken in English, are recognised internationally, and are used by the most prestigious universities in the world.

For all other undergraduate degree programmes, you must take the ESADE Admissions Test.
