Every year IAAC opens its doors for all those interested in knowing more about our academic offer and research projects. This is the perfect moment to meet some of our alumni, current students and faculty. We feel very glad that every year the number of people coming from other countries increase, therefore we set the dates in advance.


Visit us and join presentations, in-depth sessions on the individual programmes, and tours of the digital fabrication labs, working spaces and other facilities. IAAC is known for innovative, small-scale teaching and especially its hands-on approach, which follows our “learning by doing” motto. You can explore this approach to education further during presentations and demos given during our Masters Open Days.

The Academic Director, together with our Head of Studies and each Master’s programme director will give short presentations on the syllabus, workshops, subjects, internships and labour market prospects of the presented academic courses. Academic staff, current students and alumni will answer your questions and share their experience at IAAC and life in Barcelona.
