Partnerships and International Projects

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

cultural exchange 

RDAM reaches out globally and cooperates with a number of leading music academies around the world.
Staff mobility between RDAM's students and faculty on a regular basis contribute to a better intercultural understanding of the role of classical music and the higher education music institutions. 

Students at RDAM are regularly invited to participate in masterclasses with internationally recognised artists.


China is a central international partner of RDAM. RDAM valuates the contribution of Chinese music and culture as it supports the cultural insight and perspectives of the students at RDAM.  

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. MCI works to bring Western and Chinese culture and music traditions together through teaching and learning activities.

The aim of MCI is 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 traditions. 

RDAM also collaborates with DIS (Danish Institute for Study Abroad). DIS is an organisation that offers study abroad programmes for students from American universities and liberal arts colleges.
Through this partnership, RDAM offers DIS Students the opportunity to study music at RDAM.

RDAM values its year long tradition of collaborations with leading music academies in Europe. RDAM's participation in the Erasmus+ and Nordplus programmes is highly prioritised, and the programmes have contributed to development strong partnerships and valuable cultural exchanges between RDAM and its partners. 

Furthermore, RDAM participates in joint European projects, including seminars, masterclasses, ensemble/orchestra projects and summer courses. 


The use of Advanced Audio Network Technology makes it possible to work, learn and cooperate on a regular basis with the partner institutions of RDAM.
