In 2022, the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland celebrated its 175th birthday!
We have been teaching the performing arts in Glasgow since 1847. Building on our roots as a national academy of music, we have grown over the past 175 years to be one of the most interdisciplinary and collaborative institutions in the world and are consistently ranked within the world’s top 10 performing arts institutions. Most recently in 2023, the Royal Conservatoire ranked sixth in the QS World Rankings for Performing Arts Education.
The Royal Conservatoire is bold, ambitious and optimistic about our future as a 21st century conservatoire. Our goal now, through our students, staff and graduates, is to raise the transformative power and reach of the performing arts in Scotland and beyond.
