Greetings from Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama.

Do you have a passion, a talent, or both in the arts. By that, we mean the performing arts naturally but also you might be studying subjects that lend themselves to careers in the production side of the arts, in theatre, television and film.  

We offer courses in music, drama, design, set design, costume design, model and puppetry craft, scenic construction, and stage management. 

We would like to raise awareness about the opportunities highlighted below.  Drama, Music but also Art and Design, and Design and Technology.  We have new courses starting in BA (Hons) Musical Theatre and a Foundation Degree, at pre-degree level, in Scenic Construction, and would love to hear from you. Please contact us at admissions@rwcmd.ac.uk
