About Royal College Of Music

PROS

  • Students unanimously report that a lot of teaching hours are given in the classroom, meaning that learners deepen their musical knowledge by accumulating so much contact time with their teachers.
  • The college has an active Student Union that organises an abundance of social clubs and workshops. This allows hard -working musicians to take a break from their routines and get to know each other better.
  • Accommodation is provided by the academy through their Prince Consort Village halls of residence. Many students recommend new learners to live here, as it is often more affordable than renting a private flat in the city of London. Additionally, living with other students will help you integrate socially.

CONS

  • If you plan to live in the city, applicants should be aware that the cost of living in London is a challenge. This impacts international students in particular when their currency conversion is unfavourable.
