The Royal Academy of Music is a vibrant international musical community that owes its existence to European culture and history. Even though Britain has left the European Union, this part of our identity will never change. As musicians, we will continue to promote the countless benefits of collaboration and the free exchange of ideas, without regard for international boundaries. We will continue to offer the very best education to students from all over the world, as we have done for nearly 200 years. Without our multi-national character, we would not be the Royal Academy of Music.

Even in the face of a global pandemic, our enrolment numbers have remained consistent and buoyant and we were delighted to welcome many EU and International students at the start of this academic year. Already, applications for entry in 2021 are on track to exceed previous years.

As we remain committed to the international make-up of our student community, we are building up funds to offer generous scholarships and bursaries in 2021 and beyond. Our aim is to ensure that every hopeful Academy student can apply with the confidence that they will receive the right support for their talent and circumstances.

Applications for entry in 2021 are still open, and we would urge potential students to visit our Study pages to find out more about what the Academy has to offer.
