We believe the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland is like nowhere else in the world to study the performing arts. We are the only institution in Europe to offer degrees for all of the performing arts and this creates a distinctive atmosphere where collaboration can grow across all disciplines and all year groups.

We are consistently recognised as one of the world’s top 10 performing arts education institutions (QS World Rankings – 2016, 2017, 2018). This international ranking acknowledges the quality of our unique curriculum, the performance and educational opportunities made available to our students and the reputation of our conservatoire and our graduates around the globe.

We firmly believe that to make it in the competitive performing arts sectors, you need more than talent and determination. You need to make the right choices, learn in the right environment and live in a city which creates opportunity for your skillset.

As the nation’s conservatoire, and located in one of the most vibrant and artistic cities in the world, the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland has everything to help you realise your ambitions.
