Student Reviews for Royal Academy of Music, University of London

Student satisfaction:
4.7 (based on 1135 student reviews)

“The student body here is diverse, with people from almost anywhere you can think of. I found this particularly interesting as an Undergraduate in Music, as people from each country are able to bring the musical traditions from home and teach us all something new.”

“The academy is located in one of the most stunning areas of London, and of course as a Music academy you can expect to be attending musical performances on-site multiple times per week, which is just a pleasure with the calibre of musicians that study here. This is also a sure way to make some friends and connections.”

“The vibe in this place is unique, and I didn’t know it before I went but it’s the place I’ve been hoping to find for years. It’s a special experience and a privilege to be able to live and study with people who are just as crazy about Music as you are. My only criticism is that some students can get a little competitive, but they are the minority.”
