The AMEB has signed a memoradum of understanding to export AMEB Syllabuses and exams to Vietnam.

As part of the partnership, AMEB has already committed to over 500 examinations for 2019, and a number of Australian teachers and examiners will travel to Vietnam to train local teachers in the AMEB model and syllabus.  The examiners will then become part of the international panel of AMEB examiners. Well respected Dr. Dao Trong Tuyen (Head of Piano Department) and Associate professor, Dr. Nguyen Huy Phuong (Deputy Head of Piano Department) will take the lead in teaching the AMEB syllabus at the Vietnam National Academy of Music and oversee the significant move to allow their students to play some repertoire from AMEB publications in their formal exams. 2020 will also see the launch of a Music Centre in the Vietnam National Academy of Music that will teach piano using AMEB syllabuses and examinations.

In addition, the AMEB have also signed an agreement with the Ho Chi Minh Conservatorium, and a number of private music centres in Vietnam.

A dedicaed Vietnamese website will be launched in the new year that will provide information about AMEB's offering in Vietnam, online enrollments, and an online shop.
