Music tuition is expensive. Fees for undergraduate courses start at £9,250 for a UK/EU student and £23,000 for an international student. Together with the ever-increasing cost of living in London, many of our students find the financial commitment extremely challenging. A lack of financial support will, in time, drastically affect the cultural impact that music has on our society.


Providing scholarships enables us to relieve students of financial burden, allowing them to focus on their studies and make the most of all that the RCM has to offer. In-turn, we produce world-class musicians who have the ability to make a significant contribution to the global music scene.
