Program Overview

Program Description:

Young performing artists from across the world converge on the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, making it a truly international environment. Founded in 1845, Charles Dickens gave its inaugural speech, setting the stage for an innovative institution to grow into what it is today – one of the most prestigious schools for the performing arts in the world. At the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, you will experience world-class training across a wide variety of performance styles and production techniques.

You can choose courses from a large number of artistic disciplines including: composition, classical and traditional Scottish music, jazz, opera, ballet, musical theatre, acting, digital film and TV, technical and production arts, and contemporary performance practice. Opportunities to perform abound as the Conservatoire offers six performance venues which host over 400 performances a year by students, staff and visiting international artists. Your development will certainly continue long after the stage curtain closes. Spend an evening out in the city’s theatre district or an afternoon at the modern art museum.
