Studying abroad is an exciting prospect, but there can be a lot to organise. We’ve put together everything you need to know, so you’ll feel prepared for your new adventure.

When you come here, you will become part of a warm, supportive family of students and staff. You will form lifelong friendships with people from different countries and backgrounds.

All new students are formally welcomed to the Royal Academy of Music during Enrolment Week, the week before the start of full term. There will be opportunities to meet your department administrator and senior members of the academic staff. They, along with the International Officer from the Students’ Union, will be happy to answer any questions you might have.

If you're applying from the EU, read our statement on Brexit here.

'The Academy makes it easy to adjust to life here by offering practical help with everything from setting up a bank account and finding great coffee to exploring performance opportunities and organising social events'
