Teachers and students make use of the opportunities provided by the international mobility programs (such as Erasmus + and CEEPUS), exchanging experiences and knowledge with the international higher education music pedagogy community.
The Academy of Music participates in a number of international projects, primarily those connecting the, geographically closest, musical academies. The common interest of the international projects is the promotion of Croatian, but also exploration of the cultural and musical heritage of the neighboring countries through projects such as Euphony, educART etc. The international cooperation extends to musical cultural events and joint projects done in association with various foreign embassies in Croatia.
Academy of Music teachers are also very active in the international music community; the successes of their students at numerous international competitions serving as the best confirmation of the quality of their pedagogical work.
Cooperation with foreign universities has enhanced the studies at the Academy of Music in a number of ways and has helped establish the Academy as an important member of the European academic community.
The new Academy building, with all the advantages it offers, has become a significant academic center in Europe and as such has been chosen to host the International 2017 AEC Congress (European Association of Conservatoires is the main association of colleges and university schools of music in Europe).
