Maintaining the ‘Gold’ standard

2 years ago


We would like to congratulate the Royal Academy of Music, the Royal College of Music and the Royal Northern College of Music who have been awarded a gold rating for the quality of their teaching by the 2017 Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF) for institutions of higher and further education in England.

The results of the TEF were released today, 22 June, with more than 130 UK universities and other higher education institutions being awarded gold, silver or bronze ratings for the quality of their teaching. 

This follows hot on the heels of news of the RCM and the RAM’s first class world rankings together with our fourth Royal School partner, the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, which was ranked third in the world as a performing arts education institution by the QS World University Rankings.

Michael Elliott, Chief Executive at ABRSM, says, “Congratulations to the Royal Academy of Music, the Royal College of Music and the Royal Northern College of Music on their 2017 gold rating. Together with our Royal Schools partners, we share a common goal to inspire and support the next generation of musicians and we’re proud as a partnership of five to play our part in maintaining the gold standard in music education globally.”

The Royal Academy of Music, the Royal College of Music, the Royal Northern College of Music and the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland attract applications from thousands of students from around the world. Each year ABRSM awards 72 scholarships to UK and International students studying at these conservatoires.
