Course & Program View All

Qualification Level: BMus (Hons) degree

The Bachelor of Music (BMus) programme at the Royal College of Music lies at the heart of our undergraduate programmes. It is driven by our passion for music and our unique knowledge of the industry.

Undergraduate study at the Royal College of Music balances high-level training in solo, chamber and ensemble performance with critical enquiry into music past and present. Students investigate music in context and how it operates in contemporary cultures. The RCM also provides a range of options for developing practical and applied skills.

The nature of your undergraduate experience at the RCM depends on your principal study specialism. In essence, it includes individual lessons with distinguished musicians; core units in historical, technical, practical, and vocational subjects delivered in small groups; and a variety of performances.

Learning & teaching
Our undergraduate programme is designed to be flexible, especially in years 3 and 4, ensuring you can undertake study directly relevant to your needs and aspirations. A variety of options helps every student develop their interests during their time at the RCM.

Qualification Level: MMus (Hons) Top up

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).

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.

Qualification Level: MMus (Masters) Degree

The Royal College of Music offers a diverse Masters programme with multiple study routes, which allow students to work towards the qualification most suited to their needs. The Royal College of Music’s Master of Music (MMus) qualification combines research work with a range of intensive training and varied performance opportunities designed to develop your performance or composition skills to a professional level.

Normally taken over two years, the Master of Music (MMus) qualification develops students’ critical, analytical and research skills, as well as their ability to express themselves verbally to a high level. Such skills are particularly relevant for those who are interested in studying the background and context of the music they perform and analyse, and those who hope to teach or communicate about music beyond their principal study (for example as professional educators, facilitators or curators). This is in addition to continuing to develop students’ practical skills to a very high standard.

The MMus can also provide the basis for further research through our Level 8 doctoral degrees: DMus and PhD.

Royal College of Music courses are internationally recognised as full degree courses with successful students awarded their qualifications under the RCM's Royal Charter.
