Our collaborative partnerships with other well known institutions provide Conservatory students an exceptional and unique experience.
Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama (RWCMD)
We are proud to partner with The Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama (RWCMD). RWCMD, the National Conservatoire of Wales, and part of the University of South Wales Group, is one of the world’s most well-recognised music institutions and an esteemed institution located in Cardiff, Wales. As a leading UK provider of specialist practical and performance-based training in music, it takes pride in its innovative programmes tailored to the demands of contemporary arts and creative industries.
RWCMD will bring its decades of industry expertise to develop and oversee an over-arching quality framework, including annual review sessions to ensure consistency in academic objectives, standards and quality of delivery. Through the engagement of key specialist teaching staff from RWCMD, the partnership will also serve to enhance and ensure the maintenance of high-quality music education for all Conservatory students.
As a result of this exciting collaboration, all graduates from the Aureus Conservatory’s programmes will receive certificates co-developed with RWCMD – a reflection of the gold-standard academic quality, governance and execution of contents as delivered by both parties. This development offers an additional boost of global recognition and academic prowess that reinforces Aureus’ commitment to excellence.
With this academic partnership in place, RWCMD will take an active role in co-curating curricula for Aureus Conservatory’s two courses: Diploma in Music (2 years, full-time) and Professional Certificate in Music Education (6 months, full-time).
“The Aureus Conservatory was borne of our desire to revolutionise the path of music education in Singapore. We are beyond delighted to be partnering with one of the world’s most established music institutions to realise this vision. Together with RWCMD and its wealth of experience and credibility in this space, we will uphold and deliver the highest academic standards, cultivating the next generation of world-class educators and performers right here in our Conservatory.”
