NIPAI at IUGTE is an institute established with the purpose of exploring and bringing to life new, fascinating and professional forms of contemporary performance making. It was founded on the Knowledge Applicability Concept, which means that all gained knowledge are and should be applied to the performance making process. This concept combines best practices that enables student achieve more valuable results than years of theoretical study for performance makers and actors. This educational model allows students to achieve more in less time than at the majority of other directing or acting schools in the world. ​​

NIPAI courses are designed specially for artists and creative people who have already completed a full-time training course but have realized that they are not adequately prepared to compete for work opportunities within the industry. Our courses in the field of Theatre Directing, Movement Directing and Arts Management are suitable for those who wish to develop their artistic career, to have certain knowledge, tools and practical skills, which are in-demand nowadays in performing arts sector, and to create professional theatre/dance productions within different circumstances but with a valuable result.

NIPAI philosophy is learning by doing. From day one, students start to create their own original works of art, completing studies with their masterstroke - Study Projects. In every course offered by NIPAI, students receive hands-on immersive education from our prestigious faculty through a combination of in-class sessions, distant learning, workshops, webinars, and student-guided projects.

NIPAI offers 18-month Diploma programs and certification programs, as well as short term courses and workshop.
