Contact Our School

Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, Glasgow:
Formerly known as the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama, The Royal Conservatoire is Scotland's national centre of professional vocational training in performance arts. Located in the heart of Glasgow city centre, we provide a range of Short Summer Courses including performing and production arts classes and courses for adults and arts professionals, as well as children and young adults. We provide learning and training opportunities in the same five disciplines as our undergraduate and postgraduate degrees: Dance, Drama, Music, Production, and Screen. We welcome learners at all levels of experience and are committed to reducing barriers to participation in the arts.

Why Study the Performing Arts at The Royal Conservatoire?

There are three unique things about taking part in Short Courses at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland: 
 
- Experienced tutors
- Professional rehearsal spaces and venues
- Excellent learning and teaching

We offer outstanding specialist learning to the highest professional level in dance, drama, music, production, screen and education. Our training is rigorous and inextricably linked to the professions.

First and foremost, our students train to achieve excellence in every way in their chosen specialism. But they are also exposed to a rich variety of influences, approaches and attitudes, from one another and through the wealth of experiences we ensure they encounter at the Conservatoire.

One of Europe's Top Artistic Conservatoires:

Our summer schools are specialist courses designed and delivered by the Royal Conservatoire’s tutors, lecturers and professors who teach our undergraduate and postgraduate students. We are leading the way as one of Europe’s top conservatoires, offering a rare breadth of artistic disciplines.

Everything we do, as in our RSAMD days, is driven by our desire for excellence. Students flourish thanks to the extraordinary blend of intensive tuition, a rigorous performance schedule, working with professional counterparts in industry, and the space to create with others across the disciplines if they wish. Both students and staff are prolific in creating truly innovative new work.
