The RCM has a large number of student exchange opportunities with leading European,American, Japanese and Australian music conservatoires and universities. These provide an opportunity to study at another international music institution as part of your RCM studies.
The RCM is a member of the ERASMUS Programme, a European Union initiative that promotes exchange of knowledge and learning throughout Europe. As a member, the RCM receives funding in order to offer financial support to those students who choose to go on a European exchange while they are registered at the RCM.
Erasmus exchanges are for a period of three months. They are available to full time undergraduate students in Years 3 and 4, and to postgraduate students in Year 2.
Student exchanges are an excellent opportunity for you to get to know another city and its culture, to learn or develop a new language, and to benefit from the new perspectives offered by a different teacher. They also provide an opportunity to develop new networks and contacts that can help advance your future career as a musician.
Many past RCM students who have been on exchange have found the experience inspiring and have gone on to work abroad as a result.
