Royal Conservatoire of Scotland
The Royal Conservatoire of Scotland 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.
