The RCM is widely recognised as a world-class institution. We have been ranked the top institution for performing arts in the UK for four consecutive years in the QS World University Rankings 2016-19.
The UK's departure from the EU
As the process of the UK's departure from the European Union unfolds, the Royal College of Music will continue to provide updates for current and prospective EU students and those studying on the Erasmus scheme. We are pleased to confirm that EU students applying for entry in 2019 and 2020 will be eligible for home fee status and to apply for UK student loans and grants.
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.
