Following a successful partnership first inked in 2011, NAFA and the Royal College of Music, London extended the agreement on 12 January 2016 for RCM to validate a Bachelor of Music (Honours) degree programme. This partnership will continue for another five years.
This degree programme follows on from NAFA's three-year Music Diploma. There have since been 67 graduates from the programme, with 28% achieving First Class Honours.
All NAFA students visit London for an International Placement, where they study and perform alongside London-based students.
