Health & wellbeing
Keeping healthy is important for any musician. The RCM actively investigates and promotes health and wellbeing through teaching and research. We encourage all our students to register with a doctor and remind international students to check they have adequate insurance to cover health costs if needed.
We are proud members of the Healthy Conservatoires Network. Our work at the forefront of the Fit to Perform research project enables us to enact the very best policies for the health of all RCM musicians.
