The BMus Conversion Programme allows Royal College of Music alumni who graduated prior to the introduction of the BMus(Hons) as the standard undergraduate qualification to 'top up' their existing DipRCM (Performer).
Start date September 2020
Duration One or two years part-time
At the end of the programme, successful students are awarded the internationally recognised BMus(Hons) degree under the RCM’s own Royal Charter.
Students on the BMus Conversion Programme complete one core unit – a level 6 Research Project for 30 credits – and one free choice unit selected from a range of level 6 options, also for 30 credits.
Not all of our level 6 options will be suitable. Those considered most appropriate – because they are delivered through more flexible one-to-one supervision rather than through weekly lectures – are listed in our at-a-glance guide to the main BMus(Hons) programme below. However, for students living close to London and prepared to make a commitment to attending RCM classes regularly, exceptions may be made and this can be explored during your interview.
