100% Success for RCM Graduates in National Employment Survey

Friday 5 August 2016


Data published on 21 July by the Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA) shows, once again, that students from the Royal College of Music are among the most employable in the UK.

Out of RCM alumni who graduated in 2015, 100% of those who responded to the survey reported that they had moved into employment or further study six months after graduating. This is the third consecutive year the RCM has scored 100%, a unique achievement among all UK universities and conservatoires in the latest study. The RCM was also the only institution to score 100% in the previous survey and is proud to continue its legacy of providing the best opportunities for students.

RCM Director Professor Colin Lawson, CBE commented: 'Another fantastic result for the RCM which confirms how well we prepare our students for professional working life. The RCM Creative Careers Centre continues to offer wide ranging performance opportunities, paid work, professional networking and advice across a myriad of areas, all of which assists our talented students as they forge careers within the music industry.’
