The Royal Conservatoire of Scotland is a conservatoire (place of study for the arts) of music theatre and dance based in Glasgow, Scotland. Founded from the 1845 Glasgow Educational Association, it became the first conservatoire in the UK to be granted degree-awarding powers in 1993. Today, the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland is the busiest performing arts venue in Scotland, with almost 1,000 students enrolled from over 50 different countries.

The Royal Conservatoire of Scotland maintains a close relationship with the professions, which helps to ensure the continued vocational relevance of courses. Significantly, the Conservatoire employs a proportionately very high number of part-time teachers who are also active in the professions, thereby providing students with a direct and live link to those professions. In addition to the professional activities of part-time staff, many of the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland's full-time staff are also distinguished practitioners in their own professional areas of expertise.


The Conservatoire has Effective Learning Tutors who can assist students with language issues in their studies, as well as providing general study advice. More general student support is also available from the Student Union, who organise several activities for international students at the beginning of the year.


The Royal Conservatoire of Scotland is ranked 13th in the country for the study of Music in the Guardian rankings and 36th in the Times. The 2014 Research Excellence Framework showed that more than two thirds of RCS research is classified as ‘world leading’ or ‘internationally excellent’, with the strongest areas being music and drama.



The Royal Conservatoire of Scotland has an arrangement with Liberty House student accommodation that gives new students the opportunity to be accommodated in student accommodation in Glasgow, within walking distance of the Conservatoire. Non-studio apartment rooms are arranged in groups of 9 per flat with a shared kitchen.

"Last year, I reached out to SI-UK, Jaipur for my Master’s journey, and it has been an incredibly fulfilling and successful experience. From guiding me through the application process to assisting with letters of recommendation and statement of purpose, and even following up with universities, SI-UK provided comprehensive support at every step of the journey. They went the extra mile, assisting with admissions, fee processing, accommodation arrangements, visa guidance, and coordination on medical checkups. I firmly believe that my admission to the University of Birmingham wouldn't have been possible without SI-UK. I highly recommend SI-UK to anyone seeking admission to a UK or Ireland university."
