The Principal celebrates top rating for world-class Royal Academy of Music

-Posted on 07.05.2016

Following a review of England’s specialist institutions, HEFCE (the Higher Education Funding Council of England) has declared its strongest support for the work of the Royal Academy of Music. The Academy is the only conservatoire in Britain to be rated in the world’s top five conservatoires by the QS World University Rankings in each of the past three years. The latest recognition from HEFCE confirms the institution’s pre-eminent position.

Institution-specific funding recognises the Academy’s status as a global leader in specialist training. It has been awarded on the evidence of the recent HEFCE review which measured, in various categories, the Academy’s quality of recruitment, provision of teaching and research, and the impact of its graduates in the UK and internationally.

Professor Jonathan Freeman-Attwood, Principal of the Academy, said: ‘We regard this funding as very significant recognition of the Academy’s major role in training the world’s most talented musicians. It will help us to consolidate the Academy as a power-house of musical influence in this country and all round the world.’
