The RCM has a large number of student exchange opportunities with leading European, American, Japanese and Australian music conservatories and universities. These provide an opportunity to study at another international music institution as part of your RCM studies.
The RCM is a member of the ERASMUS programme, a European Union initiative that promotes exchange of knowledge and learning throughout Europe. As a member, the RCM receives funding in order to offer financial support to those students who choose to go on a European exchange while they are registered at the RCM.
Most European (ERASMUS) exchanges are for a period of three months (September to December), while American and Australian exchanges can be for one term or a full year.
