ARCM is the abbreviation of the diploma qualification Associate of the Royal College of Music and the post-nominal letters a holder is entitled to use. Like the LRAM it was formerly offered in a teaching or performing version, but unlike the latter it is no longer available.[1]

There is no obvious successor to the ARCM, since the College's undergraduates now follow a BMus(Hons) course accredited by the College itself; although in 2012 approximately a quarter of the academic staff included ARCM in their lists of qualifications.[2] When the basic graduate course led to the GRSM "graduate diploma" a condition of graduating was an ARCM pass achieved no later than a year before graduation.
