Since the formation of its first jazz course in 1987, the Royal Academy of Music has steadily produced an outstanding array of creative, versatile and employable musicians.

Your course

Undergraduate Gap Year

This course is for you if you are about to complete your secondary school (High School) studies and either wish to spend a year at the Academy before taking up a full-time undergraduate programme of study at another institution, or if you would like to receive Academy training but do not require a full programme of study that leads to a degree.

Gap year students are considered as fully-enrolled members of the Academy’s student body, and have equal access to the Academy’s resources (library, computers, practice rooms etc).
