About Royal Conservatoire of Scotland

The Royal Conservatoire of Scotland specialises in dance, drama, film, music and production. It was originally established in 1847 as part of the Glasgow Athenaeum. In 1929 it was renamed the Scottish National Academy of Music and became the Royal Scottish Academy of Music in 1944. It wasn’t until 2011 that the academy changed its name to the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland.

The conservatoire offers undergraduate degree programmes in six areas of the performing and production arts: dance, drama, education, film, music and production. Postgraduate students have the option to study drama, education, music or producing. The conservatoire also offers doctoral degrees and courses for children and young people.
