If you would like to help ensure that the students of the Royal Welsh College continue to get the best possible training experiences and to be inspired by working with the very best professional artists, you can do so by becoming a member of Connect.

Connect is a donor scheme designed to enable you to get behind our students and deepen your involvement with everything that goes on here.

Connect donations provide support to two funds:


Friends Connect Fund

Students can apply directly to this fund for assistance with a range of projects related to their training, e.g. money towards a new instrument, support towards touring a student production or travel costs to international competitions. Annual awards and bursaries are also made from this fund.

Friends Connect £30 annual donation


Connect Fund

This is the College’s main fund that supports the students’ public performance opportunities and showcases in Cardiff, London and New York as well as their interactions with leading artists who visit and perform at the College. This regular engagement with those already working in the arts is invaluable in preparing students to enter the profession successfully once they graduate.

College Connect £5 monthly | £60 annual donation
College Connect Gold £20 monthly | £240 annual donation
Patron Connect £50 monthly | £600 annual donation
Patron Connect Gold £100 monthly | £1200 annual donation
