Support for Students at The Royal Conservatoire of Scotland (RCS)

The Royal Conservatoire of Scotland is a national and international centre of excellence for performing arts education.

It is the only place in Europe where students can study all of the performing arts on the one campus. There is a distinctive creative energy at RCS and students are made to feel part of the inclusive and diverse environment from the very beginning of their studies.

RCS is proud to be consistently recognised as one of the world’s top performing arts institutions by QS World Rankings (2016–22), cementing its position as a global leader in the conservatoire sector.

“The funding from the South Square Trust has taken a great financial pressure off myself and my family, and has enabled me to concentrate all the more on my vocational training. I am very appreciative to the trustees of the South Square Trust for making this support possible.”
