The Royal Conservatoire of Scotland has taken a Top Five spot in The Complete University Guide‘s 2019 league tables – the first time an arts education institution outside London has done so.
Scotland’s national conservatoire has jumped from seven in 2018 to two in the UK-wide rankings for specialist arts, drama and music institutions. The recognition comes soon after a QS World University Rankings 2018 announcement in March which placed the Royal Conservatoire in the world’s top ten performing arts institutions for the third year in a row.
Professor Jeffrey Sharkey, Principal of the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, said:
‘It’s gratifying for the entire community at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland to be recognised as one of the UK’s leading specialist institutions in The Complete University Guide 2019.
‘Scotland’s national conservatoire is already recognised as one of the most distinctive institutions of our kind in the world. This latest endorsement further cements our status as a national and international centre of excellence for the performing arts and we’re incredibly proud to be putting Scotland’s higher education and passion for the arts on the map in this way.’
