The Guardian University Guide 2019  published today, ranks Royal Welsh College as the UK’s leading drama school for the fourth year since 2013.

The College’s undergraduate Drama training includes courses in Acting, Stage Management and Design for Performance.

“This position in the Guardian League table once again validates the professionalism and dedication of the Royal Welsh College’s staff and the outstanding talent of the students,” says Director of Drama, Sean Crowley.

“Our Acting, Design for Performance and Stage Management students benefit from a fully immersive conservatoire training, which results in over 25 productions a year ranging from new writing and contemporary drama to Opera, Musical Theatre, Puppetry, exhibition and installation.

Our students are given an incredibly rich experience and excellent opportunities to showcase their work in Cardiff and London and New York.

Our relationship with the industry is critical to this success and we constantly strive to provide our students with the best possible opportunities for employment on graduation.”
