Course summary

The GRNCM/MusB, informally known as the ‘Joint Course’, offers a unique opportunity for students with outstanding practical and academic ability to gain the advantage of simultaneous study at both a world-class conservatoire and a world-class university. Students on this unique programme will spend three years at both the RNCM and The University of Manchester (located side-by-side on Oxford Road). Your fourth year is spent entirely at the RNCM. On successful completion of the course, students receive a diploma (Graduate of the Royal Northern College of Music, GRNCM) from the RNCM, and a degree from the University of Manchester (MusB). The GRNCM builds on your ability as a performer or composer and consists of two key areas: Principal Study in Performance/Composition, and Artist Development.

All performance tuition, coaching, chamber ensembles and most orchestral playing opportunities are provided by the RNCM throughout the four years. The MusB (Hons) of the University of Manchester complements this study with scholarly practical education: it is a highly-regarded degree programme involving the interrelated study of musical performance, composition and musicology. You can broaden your horizons by studying abroad for one term of your fourth year. We currently have partnership links with institutions across Europe, Asia, Australia, Canada, South America and the USA.
