The Royal Conservatoire of Scotland has been ranked third in the world for performing arts education in a global review by the prestigious QS World Rankings 2017. This is their highest ever global ranking.
“This is a great team, working in a great city and nation.”
Up three places from last year, Scotland’s national conservatoire joins Juilliard in New York as one of the top three performing arts education institutions in the world, making the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland the top-ranking international HEI in Scotland.
Professor Jeffrey Sharkey, Principal of the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland said:
“It’s a real thrill to see Scotland’s national conservatoire recognised in the world top three for the first time. This is a proud moment for us all. This is a great team, working in a great city and nation, delivering one of the world’s most innovative arts education for the 21st century.”
The Royal Conservatoire has around 1,100 students from 52 countries. Alumni include David Tennant, James McAvoy, Alan Cumming, Ruby Wax, Katie Leung, Melody Grove, Colin Morgan, Richard Madden, Patrick Doyle, Elaine C Smith and Sir David McVicar.
