International Exchange Schemes

Although there is plenty to keep you busy here in the UK, we know study abroad brings enormous benefits to those who undertake it in terms of both musical and personal development.

Therefore, we encourage our third year undergraduate students to apply for an exchange. These include prestigious and internationally renowned music colleges in Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, The Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Romania, Spain, Sweden, Turkey and the USA.

Further Opportunities for Postgraduate Study

Many of our students have gone on to successful further study at other international conservatoires and, in particular the Weingarten Scholarships present further opportunities for postgraduate study at the Franz Liszt Academy in Budapest or the Kodály Institute at Kecskemét in Hungary.

On a less formal basis, we encourage and support our senior students to travel to international competitions and summer schools. We are also a committed member of the Association Européenne des Conservatoires (AEC), which fosters and supports staff exchanges and intensive projects and collaborations between member European conservatoires.
