The Application deadline for this course is 1 DECEMBER 2023.

The MMus degree is intended for students who are seeking an extended and thorough professional grounding at Masters level in their chosen area of specialism. This is a two-year full-time programme, leading to 240 SCQF credits at level 11 (120 ECTS credits).

Our conducting programmes provide you with the comprehensive and integrated training required of a professional conductor. You will concentrate on the technique and craft of conducting through diverse practical experience with the Royal Conservatoire orchestras, our opera department, and various classical and contemporary ensembles.

Our extensive professional links offer opportunities to work in observation and collaboration with the country’s major orchestras, such as the Orchestra of Scottish Opera, the BBC SSO and the RSNO. In fact, the RSNO generously give the conducting cohort a whole day to experience professional demands – a day that the students unreservedly appreciate.

Through individual lessons, in-house opportunities and aural classes you’ll develop perception, listening skills, and self-awareness to become a responsive leader in rehearsal and performance.

In addition to the MMus/MA programme, the Royal Conservatoire also offers a highly prestigious two-year Leverhulme Conducting Fellowship, and a Joint Principal Study route for Undergraduate conductors.
