Malmö Academy of Music forms part of the Faculty of Fine and Performing Arts at Lund University. But, as the name indicate, we are located in the city of Malmö. Each year around 1450 students study with us, some take independent courses, but the majority are enrolled in a programme at one of our two departments; Performance Studies and Music Teacher Training.

At Malmö Academy of Music you will find an international and dynamic study climate thanks to our various collaboration agreements, guest teachers and student exchanges.
