The call for entrance exams to access the Superior Artistic Teachings, adapted to the European Higher Education Area, are regulated by Resolution EDU/571/2020  To access the Higher Music Studies of ESM Jam Session it’s necessary to perform the exams of access in accordance with the provisions of Resoluction ENS/503/2017.


Applicants with special educational needs arising from physical, mental or sensory disabilities or other serious disorders, which have official recognition, may request the additional resources required to participate in the entrance examination. (See information here – Point 4).


 

Foreign students or having studied outside Spain

 

Students who don’t have a Spanish baccalaureate and medium grade qualification and must enter in the Higher Music School Jam Session by means of the entrance test that everyone sits. Admission is not possible by transfer of academic records, as Spanish legislation does not allow this from foreign centres.

 

Professional Grade in Music / Medium Grade

Spanish legislation does not recognise the Medium grade in music from other countries.

Foreign applicants must complete the specific exercise of Professional Grade in Music, which will be held at our Higher Music School during the acces exams.

 

Baccalaureate

By contrast, Spanish legislation does recognise pre-university studies of other countries (which is called baccalaureate in Spain). Whoever is in possession of a qualification of this kind must submit it for the approval of the Spanish academic authorities, and will therefore be relieved from completing the baccalaureate examination. It is not possible to establish a common rule on approvals, as the conditions vary depending on the bilateral agreement of Spain with other states.

Approvals (or information thereon) may be requested from the Departments of Education and Science of the Spanish embassies and also from the nearest consulate to the place of residence of each person concerned.

If you have already applied for approval but it has not yet arrived when the time comes for the entrance test or to enrol, you can provisionally use the “Provisional registration slip”.

Foreign students who have done baccalaureate in their country must apply for approval from the Department of Education and Science of the Spanish Embassy in their country or the Spanish consulate closest to the city of residence.
