About RCS

The Royal Conservatoire of Scotland is a national and international centre of excellence for performing arts education.

Building on our roots in 1847 as a national academy of music, we are now one of the world’s most multi-disciplinary conservatoires, offering specialised and intensive teaching in dance, drama, music, production and film.

Currently, more than 1000 students are pursuing undergraduate and postgraduate degrees at RCS across all of our specialisms. We also teach over 2000 part-time learners each year through our Junior Conservatoire and Lifelong Learning department, opening up access to the arts to children, young people and adult learners.

Located in the heart of Glasgow city centre, RCS is also a busy performing arts centre with more than 500 public performances taking place across our five professional venues each year. We welcome over 40,000 members of the public every academic year, to watch our talented and passionate students perform on stage.

Please use this website to find out more about the Royal Conservatoire – here you will find information about all of our programmes, summer schools, widening access programmes, performances and hopefully learn what it’s like to really be a student here at RCS. We invite you to look at the Digital Hub in particular to find out more about what makes RCS distinctive and like nowhere else.
