The Taller de Músics bachelor’s degree, according to Royal Decree 631/2010 of 14 May, which regulates the content of higher artistic education established in Organic Law 2/2006, of 3 May on Education, and which is in accordance with the objectives and precepts developed in Resolution ENS 2869/2011 on the recognition and transfer of credits, validation of learning, the individualised recognition of credits and other specific procedures in the field of higher education, develops the elaboration of specific regulations for the transfer and recognition of credits with the goal of mobilising students, which however does not imply any type of impediment for the accumulation of credits within the European framework of higher education.
The transfer of credits will include and only take into account the official supporting documents provided by the student. The recognition of credits implies the acceptance by Taller de Músics of those credits that have been taken and passed in the framework of another official degree, both in Taller de Músics and other universities. These credits are considered passed by recognition in the final file for the purpose of obtaining an official degree, with the full academic value of the original grades. The regulations determine the system, the procedure and the criteria that is to be followed within the current legality and provisions of the Bologna Declaration in the process of credit transfer and recognition. The credits recognised according to the above-mentioned resolution are divided into:
The specific criteria for recognition and transfer of credits are elaborated in the same resolution:
Credit validation allows credits to be surpassed by other means, such as artistic or professional experiences, or by studies not included in the system of recognition, and by transfer of credits. The student can request validation by attaching the corresponding documentation. The competences acquired must correspond to those inherent to the subjects involved.
Taller de Músics Bachelor Degree has had an international vocation from the moment of its creation following the long tradition of the Taller de Músics. A key element for improving the quality of teaching and research at the Bachelor’s Degree lies in sharing of information and experiences with foreign schools and being present at those levels which best represent and defend our interests.
For this reason, the international impulse has been translated, on the one hand in participating in networks of European and international schools to present the project of our school and to contribute to the development of formative proposals in higher music education and, on the other hand, in mobility programs with an increasing implantation year after year.
The Erasmus+ program, and more specifically Key Action 1 for the mobility of students and teachers in higher education, is the main means of mobility in our school. The ESEM Musics Workshop obtained the Erasmus Charter in 2014 and since the academic year 2016/17, there are students and teachers at the centre who participate in a network of European partners that has been growing day by day.
Taller de Músics is also open and interested in welcoming students from other centres for certain periods of study, either through the Erasmus+ program or through specific agreements.
Taller de Músics signed a collaboration agreement with Acción Cultural Española (AC/E). This agreement will serve to boost the professional careers of ESEM students and graduates through stays and concerts in Spain and abroad. These mobility actions will take place between July and November 2019 and, thanks to the agreement, all travel, accommodation and dietary expenses of the participants will be covered.
The ACS is a European network of higher music education institutions, founded in 1953, which brings together more than 280 members from 55 different countries. The aim of this Brussels-based organisation is to support music education through European projects, meetings, and exchanges, as well as to represent the interests of its members.
The Bachelor of Music by Taller de Musics was presented as a new member at the 43rd Annual Congress and General Assembly of the ACS in November 2016 in Gothenburg (Sweden) and participates in various working groups. The AEC website is a resourceful tool for institutions and their professionals as well as for students, with special reference to the mobility programs.
International students will always be admitted through the entrance examinations, for which it will be necessary to homologate the studies carried out abroad equivalent to the Baccalaureate degree (consult the website of the Departament d’Ensenyament).
Since 2019, the Escuela Superior de Estudios Musicales Taller de Músics has been a member of the IASJ.

Each year, they organise the IASJ Jazz Meeting in a different country of the world, where approximately 100 students, educators, and management staff learn, teach, perform and interact. Through this encounter, professional networks are created where leadership experiences are exchanged, jazz research is promoted and/or international bands of this musical genre are promoted

In accordance with the commitment to transparency required of university institutions within the framework of the European Higher Education Area (EHEA), and in accordance with the approach to the procedure for the design and implementation of university degrees established by Royal Decree 1393/2007, which establishes the organisation of official university education as modified by Royal Decree 861/2010, universities must guarantee, in the use of the trust that society gives them in their autonomous management, that their actions ensure the achievement of the objectives associated with the training they provide. To achieve this challenge, universities must have policies and internal quality assurance systems (IQAS) that are formally established and publicly available.
