During the first year of the course, all students audition for our professional partners (Opera Vlaanderen, La Monnaie/De Munt, Teatro Aalto (Essen, Germany), Festival of Flanders and others). Depending on the result of the audition, students may be offered a position as an intern in the following season.

There are different types of internships, including those in which the student actively participates in the production and sings in performances, those in which the student acts as a cover, and so-called observation placements in which the student is a passive participant in the production process.

All students will obtain roles in the performances produced by the IOA which include at least one production with piano in the first year and one production with orchestra in the second year of the course.
