The RNCM offers a diverse and international environment. Staff and students from all over the world come to teach and train at the RNCM.

Of the 800 students studying at the College, more than 200 are from outside of the UK. We are located at the heart of Manchester, a truly international city.

The RNCM International Office offers support and guidance to international students on various aspects of living and studying in Manchester, visa and immigration, runs orientation events, manages exchange and overseas recruitment activities and liaises with agents and international ambassadors. The International Office has also recently launched an innovative app, a useful new resource for EU/EEA and overseas students at the RNCM.

There’s so much opportunity here. There’s a lot of bars that are looking for up and coming artists and bands. I could probably perform every night. I’ve lived in London, America and Hong Kong, and Manchester is the only city I’ve found where I can do something musical every night.
