At ESADE Eolia we accept foreign students of all nationalities, as long as they have a suitable profile for our studies in dramatic art. Depending on your level of academic training and the languages ​​you speak, you can access different types of training:

If you want to train in interpretation at our school, you can access our English language course that we offer in the 3rd year of our higher studies.

To be accepted into this program, you must have at least 2 academic years completed in an official school or university in Dramatic Art (BA or BFA, Higher Degree, University Degree). If the school is not official, your training and artistic experience will be valued.

Under no circumstances will people who have no training in interpretation be admitted to this program.

You have all the information about the course programme, access requirements and academic fees in the Guide EOLIA ACTING PROGRAM FOR INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS

If you do not have Spanish nationality, you also have the right to access our 4-year EAS Degree in Dramatic Art. You can opt for the specialty of Interpretation or that of stage 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.

INFORMATION OF STUDIES: You can find all the information about the subjects, the proof of access, the prices and the scholarships in our web page:

The non-official training programs (Free Degree) are also open to international students, but they are studies that are not registered in the Spanish Ministry of Education. The advantage they have is that you are not obligated to do all the complete training, you can take the years you need and the subjects that interest you most.

In this training, it is not necessary to speak Catalan, but Spanish. We do not offer English lessons in free training. No scholarships are also offered in these unofficial studies.

Access to free training is done between May and September, and classes begin in October. It is not necessary to demonstrate official studies, but it is necessary to make a small hearing so that we can know your profile and your acting level.
