JMC Academy Bachelor degree students may apply to spend one semester at Tai Artes in Madrid, Spain. As part of the exchange, JMC Academy may also receive Tai Artes students at any of our campuses.

Students will be enrolled in subjects relevant to their JMC degree and receive up to one trimester’s worth of subject credits. The best study pathway for each student will be decided on a case by case basis. This exchange is available to students enrolled in our Acting, Music Production, Film & TV or Audio Engineering degrees who have successfully completed at least two trimesters of study.

The courses are delivered in Spanish so a language assessment may be undertaken as part of the selection process. Students who have only basic Spanish proficiency might consider enrolling in full-time Spanish language studies in Spain prior to commencing an exchange at TAI Artes in a subsequent semester.

Applications for the September 2023 Exchange program have now closed.
