We are happy to announce that, in the past months, eight new member institutions have joined the AEC community. Applications to become Active and Associate members are regularly assessed by the AEC Council members representing the regional groups to which these institutions belong, with support from the AEC Office and then considered for approval by the AEC Council. 

The following institutions have become Active members of our association:

This category is dedicated to any conservatoire, académie de musique, Musikhochschulen or any other equivalent institution in Europe aiming at educating students for the music profession. These institutions are engaged in the delivery of programmes, some of which are above Level 4 of the European Qualifications Framework (EQF) or its equivalent, and meet the broad description of such programmes contained in the AEC-Tuning Handbook: ‘Reference Points for the Design and Delivery of Degree Programmes in Music’.

The following institutions have become Associate members of our association:

This category is dedicated to institutions, both within and outside Europe, which either provide the same level of education as stated for Active members above OR are active in, or have connection to wider aspects of training for the music profession.

Lastly, we are very happy to announce that, after the AEC General Assembly on 11 November at the Royal Conservatoire The Hague, in the frame of the 50th AEC Annual Congress, the number of AEC members amounts to 304, a record-breaking number in the history of the association. More institutions have expressed their interest in joining the AEC, and we expect the community to keep growing in the upcoming months.
