Postgraduate Programmes

The RCM is home to a lively community of taught and research postgraduate students. Our postgraduate programmes encourage interaction and dialogue at all levels; at their core resides the concept of the informed musician.

The RCM offers the following postgraduate programmes:

Masters Programmes

  • MPerf or MMus in Performance: for instrumentalists, conductors and singers
  • MComp or MMus in Composition: for composers and composers for screen
  • MSc in Performance Science: for those interested in gaining a scientific understanding of how music is performed, taught, created and perceived
  • MMusEd or MMus in Education: aimed at instrumental and classroom teachers, and other musicians already in professional practice. The programme will be new in 2017/18 and is offered subject to validation.

Post-Masters Programmes

  • Artist Diploma Programmes:for performers or composers who have already demonstrated excellence in performance at Masters level, either at the RCM or elsewhere
  • Research Degrees: for performers, composers, musicologists and performance scientists, who wish to combine practice and theory at the highest level

Other Awards

  • GradDip: for Non-EU and UK/EU vocal students, as a bridge to postgraduate study, who have an alternative to a music degree or come from a non-conservatoire environment
