The Royal Conservatoire of Scotland ranked sixth best in the world for performing arts

The Royal Conservatoire of Scotland has been named the sixth best performing arts institute in the world in a new review.

The conservatoire joined institutions including the Sibelius Academy in Finland in rankings published by QS.

QS said it based its rankings on academic reputation, employer reputation and research impact.

Professor Jeffrey Sharkey, principal of the RCS said: “I am thrilled and incredibly proud to see the innovative and ground-breaking work of our staff and students recognised in the global top 10 of these highly-respected QS rankings.

“The Royal Conservatoire of Scotland is leading the way in redefining the performing arts for our nation and our students and graduates make diverse and important contributions to the arts and society globally.

“There is a special energy and daring creativity in our home city of Glasgow and I hope this recognition helps celebrate Scotland’s place as one of the world’s dynamic cultural nations.”

The Conservatoire recently announced a £2.3m campaign for a new Creative Campus with a one-to-one teaching complex and the creation of a flexible rehearsal space.

A total of 1,072 students from 52 countries currently study there.
