Glasgow’s vibrant cultural life isn’t just an entertaining extra for our students – it’s a way of life. It’s the source of stimulation, inspiration and and a hub of mentors and contacts. The Royal Conservatoire of Scotland is either adjacent to, or within a short walk of, each of the following companies and most partner with us to deliver our degree programmes:
- Glasgow Royal Concert Hall: home of the RSNO and visited by major international orchestras
- City Halls: home of the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra
- The Theatre Royal: home of Scottish Opera
- Tramway: home of Scottish Ballet
- Citizens Theatre
- Tron Theatre
A huge volume of bands and pop groups play at a number of venues, ranging from the new SSE Hydro, the SECC, the infamous Barrowlands Ballroom and King Tuts. There’s also a vibrant nightlife scene in Glasgow with regular students nights throughout the week.

- The Burrell Collection
