Exams

END OF MATTER TEST

Following the regular attendance of at least 3 years at the AERCO Academy of Choral Singing (ACC) or 3 years at the Gregorian Singing School (SCG), students will have to take the final exam with the release of a Diploma of Merit. At the end of the attendance of each subject (face-to-face, online, self-administered), a small test will be held with an assigned grade.

Furthermore, in the end, for both academic courses there is the possibility of attending, at the end of the three-year period, a year or more of a master’s degree. Within the master, participants will attend the same courses as the three-year school in addition to the opportunity to activate research paths aimed at achieving the master itself.
