Update: EU Applicants for entry to the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland in 2017

I’m delighted that the Scottish Government has confirmed that EU students commencing their studies in 2017 will be entitled to complete their studies post-Brexit without a change in fees status.

The Royal Conservatoire of Scotland is an outward-looking and world-class performing arts institution which values and benefits from the rich international diversity of its student and staff community and we welcome the Scottish Government’s commitment to EU students starting their studies with us here at Scotland’s national conservatoire in 2017.

Principal, The Royal Conservatoire of Scotland
