    The Royal Conservatoire of Scotland is a national and international center of excellence for performing arts education.
    Building on our roots in 1847 as a national academy of music, we are now one of the world's most multi-disciplinary conservatoires, offering specialized and intensive teaching in dance, drama, music, production, and film.
    More than 1000 students are currently pursuing undergraduate and postgraduate degrees at RCS across all of our specialisms. We also teach over 2000 part-time learners each year through our Junior Conservatoire and Lifelong Learning Department, opening up access to the arts to children, young people, and adult learners.
    Located in the heart of Glasgow city center, RCS is also a busy performing arts center with more than 500 public performances taking place across our five professional venues each year. We welcome over 40,000 members of the public every academic year to watch our talented and passionate students perform on stage.
    Please use this website to find out more about the Royal Conservatoire – here; you will find information about all of our programs, summer schools, widening access programs, performances, and hopefully learn what it is like to be a student here RCS. We invite you to look at the Digital Hub, in particular, to find out more about what makes RCS distinctive and like nowhere else.
    First and foremost, our students train to achieve excellence in every way in their chosen specialism. But they are also exposed to a wide variety of influences, approaches, and attitudes, from one another and through the wealth of experiences we ensure they encounter at the Conservatoire. Our new artists are being prepared to become an active part of the creative communities they join.
    We believe our facilities are amongst the best in Europe. They include six professional performance venues, a high ratio of practice rooms per student, three recording studios, percussion studios, professional stage technology, four bespoke dance studios new studios for technical design, scenic art, set-building, and costume design and construction.
    We are based right in the center of Glasgow. We have occupied our home at Renfrew Street, just behind Glasgow's famous Sauchiehall Street, since 1987. Our six performance spaces and most of our program facilities are located here and a bustling café bar, where students from across the disciplines meet throughout the day. In 2011 we expanded our facilities and opened our state of the art dance, production, and ensemble rehearsal studios, The Wallace Studios, joining Scottish Opera and the National Theatre of Scotland. It is just a ten-minute walk from Renfrew Street. In May 2014, phase two of this development opened with eight new large multi-purpose ensemble studios, apt for all our specialisms and trans-disciplinary work, keeping our facilities ahead of our contemporaries. All these are backed up by the latest IT and digital technologies.
    Our students receive an extraordinarily rich tuition experience at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland. We have the most significant number of full-time staff of any British conservatoire, and all our teaching staff is practicing professionals in their own right. We are also reliable in our international reach.
    Our visiting International Fellows are some of the most renowned artists in their field and come to work with our students several times a year. Through Masterclasses and workshops, our students are privileged to receive their tuition and inspiration.
    Equality and Diversity are of central importance to our working ethos. Performance is our purpose at the Royal Conservatoire. The nurturing and development of the individual creative potential inherent in every member of our community, staff, and students alike lies at our efforts' very heart. In turn, this means that the unique identity of every single individual who works or studies here is valid and is valued and respected.
    We welcome a diverse population of staff and students. Further, we are committed to promoting equality in all of our activities. We aim to provide a performing, learning, teaching, working, and research environment free from unlawful discrimination against applicants, staff, and students on the grounds of gender (actual or perceived), sexual orientation, disability, race, color, nationality, national or ethnic origin, marital status, age, and actual or perceived religious or similar belief.
    The Conservatoire fosters learning, teaching, research, and working culture, which supports Diversity, inclusion, and equity and requires those principles. We are thoroughly committed to promoting equal opportunities across all of our functions and practices, including learning and teaching, employment, representation, decision making, and procurement and partnerships.
    Our Equality and Diversity Forum consists of students and staff from across the institution. This forum is active, is honest, and has an impact. It represents our genuine commitment to this crucial aspect of our community and its daily life.
