Royal Birmingham Conservatoire

Royal Birmingham Conservatoire is an international, multidisciplinary conservatoire offering undergraduate and postgraduate courses in Music, Acting, Applied Performance and Stage Management, we also have a thriving Junior Department for young musicians.

Our focus is on helping our students achieve the extraordinary, and encouraging each individual to become the best that they can be. We pride ourselves on a vibrant and supportive learning environment and ensuring we prepare our students for the challenging performance industry that awaits them.

The Conservatoire is both a school of the Arts, Design and Media faculty of Birmingham City University, and a major concert and performance venue in the city which hosts hundreds of events annually. Based in the dynamic Eastside ‘learning quarter’ of Birmingham, we are in close proximity to major road, rail and air links, meaning that we are regularly visited by performers, tutors and directors from all over the world.

Our recently opened music facilities encompass 9,000m² of the finest state-of-the-art performing and teaching facilities in the country, including five new public performance spaces, seven industry standard recording studios, a black box experimental performance space and the Eastside Jazz Club, which is Birmingham’s only dedicated jazz venue. Our music facility is the first of its kind built for the digital age; £57 million has been invested into creating the perfect fusion of traditional and contemporary, and providing our students with the space to experiment with new technologies, and the technology to enhance their live performance opportunities.
