The ´TAI method´ provides each student with a unique work of experience whose central focus is a progressively more complex series of practical projects.

Each student will create and direct his or her own projects but also collaborate and perform in their classmates´ and experience all the roles and job positions available in a professional production from start to finish.


Only in TAI such projects and productions are contemplated and lived through an interdisciplinary dimension.

Students in all artistic areas are encouraged to work, collaborate and even live together, creating a melting pot for all the arts and breeding ground for enduring professional collaborations.


Subjects are not studied separately but as interlinked contents in order to ensure all students develop the skills and capacities required for the job market of today.

Experiential learning is supervised and mentored by teachers who are also qualified professionals that bring the reality of today´s industry to the classroom.

28 Different

TAI, More than a Certificate

TAI University´s approach to arts education provides students with much more than a certificate. Beyond their academic curriculum, only in TAI students have the chance to:


Create and participate in interdisciplinary art and film projects, activities and events (TAI_Labs) that are endorsed in a Complimentary Diploma.


Compile their academic and extracurricular work in a portfolio that packages the best evidence of each candidacy for employment.


Attend to masterclasses from visionary artists and receive tuition and mentoring from professionals that bring the industry directly into the classroom.

More than 10.000m2 in the Heart of Madrid

TAI´s Campus is located on Recoletos street, next to Retiro Park and Paseo del Prado in the cultural heart of the city of Madrid.

Since its foundation as a ´workshop for imaginary arts´ (Taller de Artes Imaginarias) in 1971, TAI has developed a practical approach to arts education. Students learn by doing in artistic workshops, not classrooms.

Today it hosts 10.000 square meters of art education facilities (The Set of Artists) that include a professional music recording studio and ensemble rooms, multi-purpose rehearsal locations, 2 photo studios, a digital Fab_Lab, an analogic photography lab, art & sculpture workshops, an auditorium for 150 people and 6 fully equipped and insulated sets for film shoots, art installations and photo sessions.
