  • Address: 100 Renfrew Street


The Royal Conservatoire of Scotland provides specialised vocational education to professional standard across dance, drama, music, production and screen, preparing the next generation of professionals for the global workplace.

The conservatoire experience we provide is highly unusual in the UK. We provide everything you need to excel in your specialism and go beyond to develop your own artistic voice: the qualities you need for a flourishing, deeply satisfying career.

Studying at Scotland's national Conservatoire means that you will join an artistic and learning community that is integral to the whole country's vibrant performance culture. We are uniquely placed to partner with a wealth of inspiring professionals and artistic companies. The quality of our Conservatoire education is inextricably linked with the professional world; our professional partnerships are so embedded within the programmes that it's impossible to separate the two.

We enjoy a rigorous and intense performance schedule so you'll have many opportunities to put what you learn into practice; we regard this as an essential aspect of our highly vocational conservatoire education. With six performance spaces at professional standard, it's no surprise that we are known as the busiest producing arts venue in Scotland.
