Trinity music exams first took place in Malaysia as early as 1921. However, due to World War II, the exams were interrupted and only in the 1960s did Trinity return to newly-independent Malaysia. Language and Drama & Speech examinations were then introduced in 1980. Now, as Trinity College London, we examine over 15,000 candidates each year across 40 public centres throughout the country, alongside nearly 100 private centres.
A host of activities and events, including awards and concerts, professional support seminars and workshops, complement the face to face examinations, which are held several times a year for Music and Drama & Speech as well as English Language. Our online booking platform allows for enrolment of Trinity’s suite of digital exams at any time of the year, to the convenience of the music and performance arts education community.
We are the Number 1 choice for music diplomas and enjoy an increasing support for our suite of graded and certificate exams. All our qualifications are recognised by local universities and institutions, and our diploma qualifications can be used in lieu of Malaysia STPM for music degree courses.
In 2021, Trinity will be celebrating 100 years of assessments in Malaysia and hopes to work further with the local teacher communities to benefit performing arts education.
