About the IAB

The IAB is an international leader in performing arts education and training.

The Institute of the Arts Barcelona (IAB) welcomes students from over 40 countries to our intensive performing arts programs at our state-of-the-art campus in Spain. Our Foundation, BA and Masters programs are delivered in English and our degree programs are awarded by a UK university.

The Auditions

At our New York, Chicago and Los Angeles auditions you can apply for a place on our Acting, Dance, Commercial Dance, Musical Theatre, Music, Aerial Arts, and Physical Theatre foundation and degree programs.

When you arrive at your audition, you’ll meet IAB faculty and Department Heads — the very professionals you will work with during your program at the IAB. They will tell you everything you need to know about the Institute, the program you want to apply for and the exciting life you have waiting for you in Spain. Here’s who’s coming:

The Benefits of Studying at the IAB

All IAB courses share the same priority — giving you the teaching, support and facilities you need to achieve excellence in your field. Students experience a high teacher-to-student ratio, and the family-like atmosphere of an interdisciplinary performing arts school, which is important when you’re away from home.

Our teaching philosophy has earned the IAB international recognition as a high quality center for studying the performing arts to professional levels. And when you’re part of a cultural melting pot, your horizons widen and your network deepens.

All IAB courses have their quality and standards validated and approved by the UK’s university system. It means that our degrees are recognized and accepted throughout the world as the equivalent of a degree from a British university. Our BA programs last 3 years, and is equivalent to a B.F.A. in the States, with an annual tuition competitive to U.S. colleges at only 14,000 Euros per year. (€42,000 full tuition for 3 years.)

The IAB Campus

The impressive modern exterior of our campus next to the Mediterranean is a perfect match for the high-quality facilities inside.

Dance studios flooded with natural light, ultra-modern rehearsal spaces, shimmering glass-fronted music rooms and open courtyards thronging with young dancers, actors and singers create an inspiring atmosphere for our performing arts students.

The IAB campus was designed to encourage and accommodate individual brilliance and collaborative excellence, high energy and calm reflection — often over a coffee or some healthy home-made food in our cool on-site café.

The result is a world class learning environment.

Entry into IAB programs is competitive. Start your application today to reserve a place at our auditions in New York, Chicago, and Los Angeles.
