Institute of the Arts Barcelona


The IAB program is located in Sitges, a seaside town connected to Barcelona by train. Student accommodations are a mere 10-minute walk from the city center, where the main cultural area offers live music and museums alongside shops, restaurants, and sports centers. Take a tour around the IAB facilities and the town of Sitges. You can also view the IAB in-house video to see a little of what training is like.


This program is only open to Musical Theatre students in good academic and disciplinary standing.

Academics & Curriculum

IAB is a vocational conservatory, helping students to develop their performance skills from dedicated, innovative teachers. This intense program marries technical skills and creativity within a professional performance context, including a high number of weekly contact hours and individual feedback sessions, as well as the opportunity to create shows in IAB's fully-equipped theater. Participants on this program earn the equivalent of 15 CatholicU credits through coursework in four modules. These modules are:
  • Movement & Voice
  • Acting Technique
  • Performance
  • Critical and Analytical Studies

Accommodation & Meals

Student halls are a relaxed and friendly focal point for students, just a minute’s walk to the beach and a 5 minute walk to campus. Students are responsible for preparing and cooking for themselves, using the shared facilities available in their accommodation. The IAB itself has an in-house café which offers healthy options for breakfast and lunch, in addition to the countless nearby restaurants, bars, and cafés offering an alternative for meal times spent relaxing with friends.
