Message from the Principal

Published: 24/06/2016

Following the outcome of yesterday’s EU referendum, I have written to all of our current EU students to reassure them that their status as students will not be affected as a result of the leave vote. We are absolutely certain about that.We also want to assure all EU applicants who have been made an offer for entry in 2016/17 that they will be unaffected.

The Royal Conservatoire of Scotland continues to be resolutely international in our outlook. We celebrate and cherish the diversity of our community of students and staff. We are greatly enriched by that diversity. I want to emphasise to our EU and international students past, present and future that they are, and will be, most welcome and valued members of our creative community.

Professor Jeffrey Sharkey,

Principal of the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland
