Equality, diversity, inclusion & safety

The Royal College of Music is committed to creating a safe, fair and supportive environment for all. Described at its foundation as an institution whose doors were to be ‘thrown open to the whole world’, the RCM is an international and diverse community, which aims to ensure that each individual is treated with respect and dignity, and that no student, member of staff or visitor is subjected to direct or indirect unlawful discrimination.

We pursue access and engagement locally, nationally, and internationally, opening our online resources to a wide audience. We aspire to reflect society in the UK and beyond and to provide a range of ways for the musically gifted and enthusiastic of all ages to interact with an inspirational learning experience.

Report and support

The RCM is committed to protecting the wellbeing and safety of our staff, students and visitors. We have robust policies in place and an incident reporting process. We have zero-tolerance for incidents of harassment, discrimination, sexual or domestic violence, hate incidents, bullying or microaggressions – these are never okay. Reports of this nature will be taken extremely seriously by the College and dealt with promptly and sensitively.

RCM staff and students can reports incidents via the online incident reporting form below. Reports can be made anonymously, however, in choosing to provide your name, you are not committing yourself to any actions or decisions (unless there are serious concerns about yours or anyone else’s safety, in which case the College may need to take a decision to act).

Visitors can report an incident by contacting the Academic Registrar Elly Taylor.
