Master degree thesis
A proposal for a television entertainment format must be conceived, designed, pre-produced and presented to a panel of professionals in the audio-visual sector.
Creation or adaptation and development of an entertainment format for television.
A complete bible for the format must be prepared, including its content and structure and aspects of production, shooting and budget, plus a sales dossier for the final product and details of how it will be pitched to TV channels.
Proposals for the thesis will be based on individual or group ideas and will be presented at the end of the Creativity Workshop in Module 3, where the viability of the ideas and the groups will be assessed (a two-person group is recommended).
- Phase 1: In this phase, the structure and content of the format will be defined.
- Phase 2: In this phase, production, financial, aesthetic and technical aspects will be studied and a sales pitch for the format will be prepared.
- The final presentation must include a teaser and a sales dossier, which will be prepared independently during the last weeks of the course.
Each group approved for a thesis must follow the plan for each stage of the project and respect the schedule of deliveries and activities.
- Phase 1: There will be sessions with an advisor (one for each project, depending on the genre of the format) to help students develop the ideas, content, format structure, and content ladder.
- Phase 2: In this phase specific tutorial sessions will be held with teaching staff from each field (commercial and legal, scenery and sets, production criteria, graphics, production planning, budgets, etc.). It includes the preparation of sales dossiers, teasers and approaches to pitching.
At the end of the course the format must be pitched to a panel of professionals and will be evaluated by them.
For the final master degree project to be approved, all necessary documents must be submitted, and it must be presented or defended before a panel of professionals constituted for the occasion. Attendance at tutorials and follow-up sessions, along with documents, the presentation or defense of the project, and the program bible, will account for 100% of the final grade.
Based on interviews with students, each academic year we establish new agreements for cooperation with companies and organizations directly related to their professional field. The internship will be customized to the characteristics of each student, taking both academic aspects and availability into account.

All the services you need during your time at the school
To access the master degree and/or university specialization diplomas, you must hold an official Spanish university degree, or a degree from another country in the European Higher Education Area. These studies are also open to students with a degree issued by an education system outside the European Higher Education Area, who do not need to have it approved, provided that the level of training is equivalent to that of an official Spanish degree and that, in the country of origin, the degree gives access to graduate studies. However, admission does not in any case imply the convalidation of the degree or any other type of recognition beyond allowing the student to access master and graduate studies at the University. Furthermore, these courses are open to people who do not have a degree but who, due to their professional or personal background, are considered qualified to take them. In these cases, the degree they will obtain will be a university extension.
Students will pre-enroll online (by accessing Pre-enrollment | Blanquerna or the pre-enrollment option for each course). You can also pre-enroll in person at the School. During the process, the candidate must submit the required documentation:
- ID card, passport or NIE residence card.
There is no charge for this procedure. When the pre-enrollment process has been completed, you will obtain a receipt with pre-enrollment details and a pre-enrollment code (CIB).
When pre-enrollment has been completed, the candidate will be offered a date for an interview with the director and/or coordinator of the master degree, who will assess their suitability and resolve any doubts they may have about the course for which they are enrolling. For the selection of candidates the following will be taken into account:
- Academic transcript
- Personal interview
- Professional experience
Once the assessment is complete, the student will be informed of the result of the interview and how to enroll, if admitted. Once admission has been confirmed, the candidate will have to pay €100 as a reservation fee, using the same application via which pre-enrollment was processed. This amount will be considered a reservation fee and will be deducted from the total price of enrollment when it is formalized. Payment is by credit or debit card using a secure, confidential process. The amount paid as a reservation fee will not be refunded under any circumstances, unless the course is canceled.
Enrollment is the final step in the procedure to access the master degree. Students will be informed individually of the enrollment date. When enrollment is complete, with payment of the corresponding fee, the student will have definitively secured a place. If the student leaves the course, the enrollment fee will not be refunded in any case. The School reserves the right to cancel any courses for which the required minimum number of enrolled students has not been reached. In this case, the amount paid for enrollment will be refunded in full.
Documentation to be provided:
- Certified photocopy of the degree certificate or certified photocopy of the university studies completed.
- Official academic certification (list of subjects studied with their grade).
- Current account number for direct debit.
When students enroll, they will have two business days to pay the total cost of enrollment, by bank transfer, credit card or barcode. Studies can be paid in installments, without any interest, by bank transfer. If payment by installment is selected, students will have two business days following completion of enrollment to pay 33.3% of the total cost of the enrolled credits, using their chosen form of payment; this payment cannot be made by direct debit. The remaining 66.4% is split into two monthly installments, in January and March, payable by direct debit using the bank account number provided upon enrollment.
Master degrees in Entertainment Television Programs and in Music and Sound for Gestmusic Entertainment Projects can split payment into 5 installments (50% enrollment fee, 15%, 15% and 10%, 10%). The first receipt is paid at the time of enrollment by bank transfer and the rest is paid in installments from November to February by direct debit.
School alumni are given a 15% discount on the enrollment fee (non-cumulative discount). Distinctions obtained in the fourth academic year of the bachelor degree are not eligible for a discount in own master degrees and graduate studies. Prices are updated each academic year. Once enrollment is complete, the amount paid will not be refunded under any circumstances.
When a student enrolls, a contract for the provision of teaching services is formalized between the student and the Blanquerna Foundation, which is legally binding from the time of payment. Payment includes the corresponding insurance and, for students under the age of twenty-eight, compulsory academic insurance. If a student declines to take up a place, he/she will lose in full any amount he/she has paid. The student accepts the rules for the use of computer services established by the Blanquerna Foundation. The student's personal data will be included in an automated file under the responsibility of the Blanquerna Foundation, so that this contract can be maintained and fulfilled. Students should note that their data may also be used to inform them about the future activities of the Foundation, or for the institution to send them publications. In accordance with the provisions of Organic Law 15/1999 on the protection of personal data, students have the right to access their data to update, rectify or cancel them, or object to their use, by sending a letter, indicating which right they want to exercise.
This section is a summary of the general conditions for enrollment. It is only for guidance and therefore has no contractual value. In the event of any discrepancy, the provisions of the general conditions for enrollment specified in the receipt generated at the time of enrollment will prevail; this receipt formalizes the contract between the student and the Blanquerna Foundation; students can consult it on the intranet whenever they wish.
The School reserves the right to ask candidates with qualifications obtained outside the EES for a letter from their university, embassy or consulate to certify that their studies enable them to pursue a master degree or graduate studies. Students are responsible for having all the official documentation necessary for their stay in Spain while studying at the School. Applicants can ask for a pre-acceptance document attached to the pre-enrollment receipt to initiate applications for visas or scholarships or carry out any other administrative procedure. Under no circumstances does this document guarantee a place if all the access and admission requirements are not met. Once applicants have been accepted and enrollment is complete, they can request a letter of admission from the Academic Secretary, if required, by paying the corresponding fees.
