The Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama is Wales’ national conservatoire and was named as a Royal College in 2002, three years after HRH The Prince of Wales became the College’s Patron in 1999.
We rank highly in the UK and are widely recognised for excellent training and for the preparedness of our graduates to work in the performing arts. We now train over 700 students in drama and music each year, within a vibrant and popular centre for the creative arts, which attracts audiences of around 60,000 annually. This offers our students beautiful world-class facilities and a professional environment from which to work and to perform to the public.
The Development Department raises money to:
- Support a diverse and engaging student performance programme which gives students professional performance experience in our own beautiful facilities but also across Wales, the UK and internationally
- Provide opportunities for students to work with world renowned international artists
- Provide scholarships and bursaries to those in financial hardship and to the most talented students
