Candidates are evaluated based on their mastery of written expression in multiple languages, analytical skills and general knowledge.
Second/third year admissions
Admissions are based on the completion of topic-based exercises in each of the candidate’s working languages. Exercises will contain different types of support documents (texts, photos, images, drawings, figures, graphs etc) as well as the viewing of a short video in English (or French if the candidate’s mother tongue is English):
- Exercise 1 – 4 hours:
- Summary writing in English based on a given topic and support documents in English (or in French if the candidate’s mother tongue is English)
- 3 questions to be answered in the candidate’s other working language on a given topic and support documents in these language.
- Translation from the candidate’s two working languages into their mother tongue.
- Lunch break – 2 hours: Activities proposed ISIT’s student associations.
- Exercise 2 – 2 hours: Writing exercise in the candidate’s mother tongue in which the candidate expresses a personal opinion, based on one of the topics previously covered.
Example: I am a candidate for admission to ISIT and my language combination is English (mother tongue) plus French and Spanish as working languages.
The first exercise will involve analyzing support documents in French on a specific topic and in Spanish based on an other topic. Then, respectively, I will be required to write a summary in French of the French documents and answer three questions in Spanish regarding the Spanish documents.
Exercise 2 will then involve translating texts from French and Spanish into my mother tongue, English.
Finally, after the lunch break, I will be required to write a text in my mother tongue (English) expressing a personal viewpoint based on one of the topics presented in the previous exercises.
