From September 17th to October 9th IED Barcelona organizes Unlocking IED, a series of informational and student connection activities that will help new incoming students have a smooth start.

Unlocking IED Barcelona is designed to cover a range of topics for a great student experience. Every activity will serve as a key that will open a door to help new students successfully navigate IED Barcelona. Each event has been co-created by students and staff looking for an incoming student centered experience.

New students will receive an e-mail with a personal invitation to register for the specific activities addressed to their group.
