The Royal College of Music is one of the world's greatest conservatoires. Our excellence was recognised by the 2020 QS World University Rankings, in which we ranked as the top institution for performing arts in the UK for the fifth consecutive year and top in Europe. The RCM also achieved an overall rating of gold for its outstanding teaching and learning provision for undergraduates in the first ever Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF).
We welcome and support students from all over the world. Our international reputation is matched by our commitment to students who benefit from world-class facilities, amazing performance opportunities and exceptional professors. You can see our facilities for yourself at our annual Open Day, where you can also meet staff and current students.
