Welcome to Short Courses
Short Courses are for anyone who wants to learn about the performing and production arts. We have over 200 courses for children, young people and adult learners across the disciplines of dance, drama, music, production, screen and teaching skills.
Whether you are a complete beginner who wants to try something different or a professional looking to improve your specialist skills, we hope to welcome you to an RCS short course. All of our facilities, technicians and staff are here to support your development and learning, and you will have access to the same resources as the Conservatoire’s degree students.
Last year our youngest student was aged just 14 months and our oldest was aged 84 years. Almost 2,500 students studied a short course in 2013/14 from Scotland, the UK and across the world. We are proud to say that of those students, 99% reported they would return for more training with us at the Conservatoire.
