This credit transfer scheme works for the full range of Berklee’s campus locations, enabling students to continue their studies in Boston (USA) but also in Valencia (Spain) or alternatively via the Berklee Online digital campus.
Our “Berklee reference teachers” will support you throughout your studies at IMEP, giving you the best chance of reaching Berklee.
2. Apply to Berklee
Every year Berklee College of Music holds its European auditions at IMEP – Paris College of Music.
Many of our students, supported by our teaching and management staff, take the audition – and succeed!. Selected candidates are awarded grants ranging from $10,000 to a full “presidential” scholarship.
Throughout the process, our management team will guide you at every step of the way as you prepare your application.
Once they have been admitted to Berklee (undergraduate admissions process), students will be able to transfer the credits they acquired at IMEP following the equivalence table below.
NB: During the admissions process, students will need to present a complete set of documents translated into English in order to ensure that the credits are effectively transferred and guaranteed as valid.
