Course summary

The Artist Diploma (ArtDip) in Performance is designed for students who wish to work intensively on their own performance as a prelude to entering the music profession. It provides time for preparation of concerts, recitals and competitions, under the guidance of the RCM’s staff and instrumental faculty specialists.

The Royal College of Music's Artist Diploma (ArtDip) Programmes represent the highest level of taught postgraduate study. They are aimed at musicians who want to hone their skills by working intensively on areas of their artistic development. Places on our Artist Diploma programmes are only offered to students who have already demonstrated a high level of ability at master’s level.

For most principal studies the ArtDip in Performance may be studied for up to two years, except for Keyboard instruments where a maximum of one year is possible. The duration for individual students will depend on their individual progress and readiness for assessment. Most students will complete the programme within one year and it will be assumed that a student will complete within one year, unless they discuss a wish to complete within two years with their Head of Faculty.

Final examination for the Artist Diploma in Performance normally takes the form of a concert, recital engagement or concerto performance.
