Production Arts and Design at RCS?

Our graduates are widely recognised in theatre and film as having the right skillset, attitude and approach that the industry craves as it expands and develops. Work placement providers often offer our graduates employment, recognising that this programme properly equips them to make a significant contribution immediately.

” Our students gain practical experience working on a huge range of productions, including opera, ballet, contemporary performance and theatre. No other UK institution can offer this to students all within the one campus.”
