If you want to train in interpretation in Barcelona, ​​you can access our online language in Spanish that we offer at our 3r course of our higher education. Unfortunately, we do not offer English studies of Performing Direction and Dramaturgy, only in Spanish.


  • Have the passport in order.
  • You must have at least 2 academic years taken at an official school or university in Dramatic Arts (BA or BFA, Higher Degree, University Degree). If the school is not official, its training and artistic experience will be valued.

  • AUTUMN (first semester). From 15 from September to 31 in January.
  • SPRING (2nd semester). From 1 from February to 15 in June.


The number of places offered in each semester will depend on the students who arrive at our school through our exchange agreements. Eólica ESAD receives students from London and Chicago every year in the second semester (Spring). Therefore, usually the center has more places in the first semester (Autumn).


To be able to access our online language in English, the interested party must send via email to the following documentation:

  • Passport
  • Artistic curriculum
  • Letter of motivation in English
  • Academic file of the student of the center where he studies or has studied.

If you do not have Spanish nationality you also have the right to access our Higher Degree in Dramatic Arts for 4 years. You can opt for the specialty of Interpretation or for Performing Direction and Dramaturgy.

Access must be done as the rest of the candidates to occupy a first grade place. It is essential to have the approved baccalaureate (official studies of your country up to 18 years) and to pass the test of access to our center that is held in June.

Is the Catalan language necessary? To access the specialty Interpretation yes, since in the Community of Catalonia we have two official languages, and by regulations of the Department of Education in official studies, our students must obtain the educational competencies in both languages. We do not ask you to have a perfect diction at the time of access, but you will have to defend a monologue in Catalan.

In the case of the specialty of Performing Direction and Dramaturgy, Catalan is not essential to speak.

What you have to keep in mind is that the registration period for entrance examinations takes place from April to June, and access tests are in person and are carried out at our school the second fortnight of June. You can not access these official studies by any other means.
