We are happy to announce that, during the summer, three new member institutions have joined the AEC Community. Applications were assessed by the AEC Council members representing the regional groups to which these institutions belong to, with support from the AEC Office. They were approved during the two last AEC Council online meetings on the 3rd July and the 28th August. 

These include two new Italian Institutions:

These institutions became Active members of our network, a category dedicated to any conservatoire, académie de musique, Musikhochschulen or any other equivalent institution in the European Higher Education Area 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’.

Moreover, AEC would like to warmly welcome the Academy of Music, Theater and Fine Arts (AMTAP) in Chişinău. This institution became an Active member, after the AEC issued an official invitation in order to strengthen cross-border collaboration and to support not only Ukrainian institutions but also those institutions from neighbouring countries in view of their geopolitical situation. We hope this cooperation will reinforce the process of getting the Republic of Moldova closer to the countries of the European Union.

Is your institution interested in becoming an AEC member?

Our brochure for prospective members, as well as our application form, is available upon request.
