There are 2 steps to the online matriculation form –

  1. Online payment of fees form:
    • Please complete this section even if you are waiting on your award letter.
    • If you are funded by SAAS or Student Finance England/Wales/Northern Ireland, please provide a copy of your award letter. We need both the award letter confirming fees payable to the Conservatoire and any loan disbursement letter from the Student Loans Company. If you have applied for a student loan and have provided the Student Loans Company with your bank details and all documents required, your loan will be paid directly into your account, provided that you have completed the matriculation process and provided the Conservatoire with your award letter and letter confirming your loan. Please allow 5 working days for this payment to be processed to your bank account, from the start of term (21 September).
    • All documents related to fees and funding can be uploaded as part of matriculation or you can email this to feesform@rcs.ac.uk at a later date.
    • If you have been successful in receiving a scholarship and are due a disbursement, you will be contacted by finance for your bank details.
    • Incoming Erasmus, International Exchange or Study Abroad students do not need to complete the Payment of Fees Form.
  2. Online Matriculation Form – in this section, you will be asked to complete personal details that we require as part of your student record.

2. International Students:

Please send in your Biometric Resident Permit (BRP) or passport with the 30-day visa vignette (only applicable if any details have changed since you have last matriculated).

Agreement of a payment plan, which will be at the discretion of the Conservatoire’s Finance Officer, will permit you to matriculate. Failure to meet the terms of an agreed payment plan will results in your student card being deactivated and the discontinuation of your programme of study.
