Research degrees at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland are overseen by The Exchange, the research and knowledge exchange unit that is responsible for all matters relating to research.
The Royal Conservatoire has offered research programmes leading to the awards of Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) and Master of Philosophy (MPhil) since 2000. Following an historic agreement, research degrees undertaken at the Royal Conservatoire are validated and awarded by the University of St Andrews, the third oldest university in the English speaking world. Research students matriculate at both the Royal Conservatoire and the University and therefore have access to the facilities of both institutions.
We have a distinctive ethos for our research programmes: as performance to the highest standards is central to all of the Royal Conservatoire’s work, our research activities are located within that context. The key elements of performance and/or creation give the Royal Conservatoire’s research profile a clear and individual identity. We offer opportunities for suitably qualified students to work towards the achievement of research degrees in appropriate areas of enquiry in both music and drama. Applications will only be successful if it is clear that the proposed research can best be undertaken within our particular context.
Our specific areas of interest for research degrees are:
