Music students in Kuala Lumpur are set to benefit from a
new partnership with the University of Wolverhampton.
College of Music (ICOM) in Kuala Lumpur has been validated to offer
the University’s BMus (Hons) Professional Music course.
The course covers music performance, arrangement and production,
and 23 students are already enrolled. It is expected the numbers
will rise to 60.
Staff at ICOM will deliver the course, with support from
lecturers at the University’s School of
Sport, Performing Arts and Leisure, based in Walsall. They will
visit Kuala Lumpur for staff development and assessments and also
to give masterclasses and workshops to students.
Kevin Stannard, Head of Music, said: “I am looking forward to
developing collaborative work between student composers and
performers at ICOM and the University - as well as forging strong
teaching and research links between academic members of staff.“
John Pymm, Dean of the School of Sport, Performing Arts and
Leisure, said: “This is a tremendous achievement for us all, and is
the first example of supported delivery by the University. The
staff team at ICOM has been outstanding during the validation
process and I am very much looking forward to working with them.
This is a tribute to a dedicated set of musicians in both
institutions, whose creativity and tenacity has secured this highly
