RWCMD – Coronavirus Updates

4th August 2020


We are preparing our buildings for a safe reopening for students and staff in September. The health and wellbeing of all of our community is our top priority and so we have introduced sensible protective measures that will ensure we are able to keep everyone safe, while being able to offer an exciting blended learning model for all our students. Our plans have been fully risk assessed and comply with the relevant advice of the Welsh and UK Governments.

These measures mean that we will be operating at a reduced capacity, so will be running a blended learning curriculum for the Autumn, for both the senior College and Pre-College (Junior Conservatoire and Young Actors Studio), with some activities taking place face-to-face and others in a digital learning environment. Learning on campus will be prioritised for:

  • face-to-face activities that cannot be delivered online, or that are the most challenging to deliver online
  • teaching activities that maximise learning when delivered face-to-face
  • performance activity that requires the larger spaces and involve final year undergraduates and MA students

Although the College will remain closed to the public for at least the early part of the Autumn, we have been planning a digital public programme and details of this will be published in September.

Most of our staff will continue to work from home and can be contacted via their direct email address.

FAQ’s for Students and Staff can be found on the College Hub:
