Curriculum

Module 0. Supplementary training courses: basic, musical and technical content (0 ETCS / not graded)

Module 0 is a voluntary initial training course, to level up students' prior knowledge and ensure that they can follow the activities and exercises that are part of the course. This module will not be graded.

Module 1. The entertainment industry (8 ECTS)

Immersion in the entertainment industry and contact with professionals, so that students obtain sufficient knowledge of the areas and media in which they will move and work during the course, specializing in the field of music and sound, where they will be able to work professionally in the near future, when they finish their studies.

Module 2. Sound. TV, movies and musicals (13 ECTS)

In this module, after assimilating the necessary knowledge, students will tackle the complete technical development of a project for a live event or recording, from presentation to launch. They will study different ways of working, the design of the performance space, the assembly and adjustment of equipment, trouble-shooting and, finally, the execution of the project. Students will be able to work as a team or independently, both in the studio and outdoors.

Module 3. Music and Technique (13 ECTS)

The module offers specific training to apply musical and technical knowledge to all areas of music production, with the assistance of music producers and musicians who work in entertainment projects. Students will work in teams of two to offset differences in their prior knowledge of music and technical matters.

Module 4. Sound studies. Recording and post-production (17 ECTS)

If we want a piece of music to be of good quality and well produced, the studio is undoubtedly the key. In this module, we will be able to see all the stages of production, from the score to final mastering. Within audio-visual post-production, we will see the process of editing and synchronizing all the audio signals involved in a production, which, once mixed, form the soundtrack that accompanies the image.

Module 5. Master degree thesis (9 ECTS)

The sole purpose of the final degree project is the application of the skills acquired during the course, bringing them together and synthesizing them to consolidate the training received. It can be prepared individually or by a team, allowing students to tackle projects that need expertise both in music and in the technical field.

Master degree thesis

The sole purpose of the final degree project is the application of the skills acquired during the course, bringing them together and synthesizing them to consolidate the training received.

A wide range of projects can be undertaken. They are proposed by students and presented to the course supervisors for approval. They include options as diverse as:

  • Musical soundtrack for a short film (cross-over with university students, fiction)
  • Trailer for a video game or movie (music, voice over, SFX, etc.).
  • Creation of the sound branding of a program (separators, tuning, background music, etc.). Cross-over with TV program master degree students.
  • Other proposals submitted by students

The project will have individual tutoring and will involve practical work in production studios and/or using the professional equipment required. It can be prepared individually or by a team, allowing students to tackle projects that need expertise both in music and in the technical field.

The advisor is the person who accompanies the student from the start of the thesis until it is defended before the panel. The advisor provides expert knowledge on the projects being developed, and is responsible for guiding and motivating the student in all aspects related to the different phases of the thesis.

When the project has been completed, it must be presented to a panel of professionals and will be evaluated by them.

Application process

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.

Pre-enrollment

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.
  • CV

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).​

Admission

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

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.

Foreign students

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.
