The RCM is widely recognised as a world-class institution. We have been ranked the top institution for performing arts in the UK for five consecutive years in the QS World University Rankings 2016-20.
The UK's departure from the EU
As the process of the UK's departure from the European Union unfolds, the RCM will continue to provide updates for current and prospective EU students and those studying on the Erasmus scheme. On 23 June 2020 the UK Government announced changes that will affect the fee status of many EU applicants planning to begin studies at the RCM in September 2021.
RCM professors come from across the globe, including more than 70 from Europe, bringing with them a wealth of experience and expertise. Our friendly staff in Registry and Student Services are experienced in helping EU students and are available to offer assistance and advice.
We like to ensure all our students feel at home when they arrive. There are plenty of opportunities to get to know your fellow musicians and the RCM Students’ Union runs a diverse programme of social events.
‘We believe that you won’t find a more welcoming and inspiring place to study anywhere in the world’
If you have any questions about applying to the RCM as an international student please contact our friendly International team who will be happy to offer advice.
