Our campus

The College's stunning landmark building is located in the heart of Cardiff, overlooking beautiful urban parkland and just a 5-minute stroll from the city centre and mere 15 minutes from student halls.

A close community

With under 1000 students, we offer an inclusive and nurturing environment. The College is small enough that you won’t get lost in the crowd and we hope you will feel very much at home. Our main campus boasts state-of-the-art facilities, a concert hall and theatres which compliment our two other teaching sites. 

The Old Library, is our rehearsal and performance space located in the heart of the city centre, and Llanishen Studios, our production workshop located a short drive/bus ride from the main city centre in Llanishen.

Your home away from home

A dynamic and diverse environment

As one of the city’s most popular arts venues, the College presents over 400 public performances each year, offering plentiful, diverse opportunities for your work to be seen and heard.

With music and drama specialisms all under one roof, there are opportunities to collaborate across disciplines – from formal, large-scale drama, opera and musical theatre productions to student-led initiatives like REPCo.

What people say about us

‘RWCMD has its own unique stamp, and you feel that as soon as you walk into the building. What’s particularly striking is its openness, and I think that is because of the real commitment from staff and students to exchange knowledge in an atmosphere of tremendous support. You can see how the students would carry that through into their professional lives. '
