International students

Around 50% of Royal College of Music students come from outside the UK, representing 60 different countries. International students study at all levels at the RCM and are involved in all aspects of performing life at the College. Our professors, too, come from across the globe, bringing with them a wealth of experience and expertise. This is part of what makes the RCM a friendly, exciting and diverse hub of music-making.

The RCM truly is an international music community in its own right.

Support for International Students

We understand that moving to a new country can feel like a big step, and we will do everything we can to help make you feel at home.

Our Registry and Student Services staff provide advice and support for international students across a range of practical subjects including visas and immigration, opening bank accountsaccommodation, financial advice or just finding out how to make the most of your time here.

Your fellow students will also help you to settle in. There are plenty of opportunities to get to know each other through RCM activities such as social events run by the RCM Students’ Union.

Our graduates all around the world tell us how fondly they remember their time at the RCM. We believe that you won’t find a more welcoming and inspiring place to study anywhere in the world.
