Professional Experience Schemes

Our Professional Experience Schemes offer senior students the chance to gain enviable real-world experience as ensemble musicians.

Each year over 60 students undertake professional placements with our orchestral partners, all of which provide invaluable insight and practical experience of life within the profession through auditions, rehearsals, education projects and public performances.

The RNCM has developed close relationships with orchestras and ensembles across Europe, and is proud of its professional partnerships. These relationships remain important for supporting the profession, as students progress from education and become the next generation of musicians.
