Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama

The Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama is the National Conservatoire of Wales and a leading UK provider of specialist practical and performance based training in music and drama. We provide training that will enable our students to discover and develop their own artistic individuality and to not only to enter the music, theatre and related professions but to shape the future of those professions. Our dedicated teachers have a wealth of professional experience and the College collaborates with a number of high-profile arts organisations, visiting artists and directors to ensure that the unique vocational nature of our training programmes reflect the current practices and conditions of the professional world.

We welcome talented students from all backgrounds and we strive to maintain a diverse, inclusive community. Our students work in a down-to-earth and friendly environment and they receive excellent levels of support and encouragement from a wide network of individuals. With just 600 students, there is a real sense of community.
