Valencia International Performing Arts College (VIPA College), located on the beautiful shores of Valencia, Spain, is being created in the 21st century for the musicians of today. We’re a brand new music college that is bringing together the most distinguished professors from around the world. Past students of our faculty hold principal seats in orchestras all over the globe.

Our world-class faculty roster and our primary focus on career advancement make the VIPA College experience one where you will be exposed to the needs of both the American and the European labor markets, in a unique environment around what we call Globalized Learning.

VIPA College is the only school in the world completely focused on blending together New World and Old World musical traditions into the student’s experience. This singularity occurs through a new concept: Team Tutoring, which, combined with Globalized Learning, means that each studio will offer a team of 3-5 professors coming from the two continents, each one of them undertaking a tutor role towards the student, just as if you were studying in various schools at the same time! You can read more about this idea here.

Audition procedures

At VIPA College's Admissions Office, it's our main objective to facilitate exposure to talent, and for this reason, we don't want to miss the opportunity to admire our prospective students’ performing or creative skills due to difficult/expensive travel arrangements, date conflicts with auditions in other schools, or streaming connection failure. That is why we have opted to make student selections through the review of pre-recorded video materials you submit with your application, following each studio’s requirements

As an applicant, you will only need to pay a one-time application fee (see below), which will cover the entire application process at once. As auditions will be done based on submitted video materials, there's no need to travel to Valencia (although you're most welcome to visit us anytime!), nor to hire anybody specifically for a live performance. Be advised, however, that, in some cases, students could be required to hold a virtual interview which would be done online on dates to be announced individually.
