Partnerships and International Projects

RDAM are working closely with partners in China, USA and Europe


China plays an important role in the international relations at RDAM. Chinese music and culture is considered an important cultural imput to our future music students. 

In 2012, the Music Confucius Institute (MCI) was established at The Royal Danish Academy of Music in collaboration with The Central Conservatory of Music in Beijing, China. The purpose of the MCI is to facilitate musical and cultural exchange between China and Denmark. MCI aims to actively contribute towards the future global development of music by creating synergies between classical Western and Chinese musical traditions. Read more about MCI.


The academic and entrepreneurial approach in the U.S. inspires and brings new pedagogical thinking into the European tradition. Also the use of distance learning makes it possible for RDAM to work, learn and cooperate on a regular basis with leading American music institutions. Cultural differences is explored through exchange and study tours for RDAM's students and faculty. 

An American focus is also integrated in RDAM's participation in the Danish Institute for Study Abroad (DIS) programme for American music students. Read more about DIS.


The long tradition of European collaborations is important to RDAM and our participation in the Erasmus+ and Nordplus programmes is regarded as high priority in the development of strong partnerships and mobility. The European student and staff mobility has created valuable cultural exchanges between RDAM and partners. 

Also participation in joint European projects with partners is essential, which covers seminars, master classes, ensemble/orchestra projects, summer courses etc.
