The Royal College of Music ranked as the Global Top Institution for Performing Arts

Tuesday, April 19, 2022 - 11:00

The Royal College of Music has been ranked as the global top institution for performing arts in the 2022 QS World University Rankings by Subject.

The QS rankings not only measure the strength and quality of teaching, but also the quality and output of research activity, employability and the RCM’s international profile. Rankings are compiled from the opinions of academics and employers and from analysis of research output and impact.

In recent years the Royal College of Music has transformed its campus, adding a new performance hall, a new performance studio, a new large café and courtyard area and a new Museum – spaces that are all available for hire.

The Royal College of Music nurtures gifted musicians from all over the world for international careers as performers, conductors and composers. Opened in 1883 by the then Prince of Wales (later Edward VII), the RCM has trained many of the most important figures in British and international music life, including composers Benjamin Britten, Rebecca Clarke, Samuel Coleridge-Taylor, Anna Meredith, Lord Lloyd Webber, Ralph Vaughan Williams; conductors including Sir Colin Davis, Sir Roger Norrington and Leopold Stokowski; singers including Sir Thomas Allen, Alfie Boe, Dame Sarah Connolly, Gerald Finley, Dame Gwyneth Jones and Dame Joan Sutherland; instrumentalists including Sir James Galway, Dame Thea King, Gervase de Peyer, Trevor Pinnock and guitarist John Williams. Musicians from the RCM are consistently at the forefront of the musical life of the UK and around the world as soloists, composers, orchestral performers, musical directors, arrangers, teachers, and artistic leaders.

As a place of education and a charity, you support the development of the next generation of talented musicians by choosing the Royal College of Music as the venue for your event.
