Scholarships and Bursaries Programs 2020 - 2021, Royal Academy of Music, UK

Publish Date: Jul 26, 2020

Deadline: Jan 31, 2021

Scholarships and Bursaries Programs 

Scholarships are awarded on the basis of merit and bursaries are given to students based on financial need. Both come from a pool of individual supporters and portfolio of bequests that add to the Academy’s overall resource.


After auditioning, you will be offered a place, either with or without a scholarship.

All international students and UK/EU postgraduates are also invited to apply for financial assistance.

You should then accept your place and submit your financial assistance application online by 31 January.

The Bursary Committee meets at the end of February and will notify applicants if they’ve been awarded a bursary in early March.

If financial assistance is not awarded through the bursary process, you can apply for hardship funds (more information below) after enrolment is completed.

All awards are ongoing for the duration of your study programme, unless otherwise stated. Please note, if your course is extended for an extra year, awards are not automatically renewed.


Entrance scholarships (except for Gap Year and Study Abroad programmes) are awarded on the basis of merit following your audition assessment (either by live audition or by video recording) during our advertised audition sessions. Composers are assessed for scholarships on the basis of their second-round interview. There is no separate application process for scholarships.

Scholarships range from small awards to full fees. Most awards offset fees, although undergraduate scholarships for UK and EU students are administered as maintenance awards (unless the scholar wishes the award to go towards fees to prevent taking out a loan).

Scholarship disbursement for UK and EU BMus students is processed through the Student Loans Company payment system after a loan application has been made.
