The prospectus offers students a behind the scenes look at RCS
Royal Conservatoire of Scotland launches digital prospectus4:35, 5th May 2020
The Royal Conservatoire of Scotland has launched a new digital prospectus offering prospective students a glimpse behind the scenes of the high-ranking university.
Bespoke photography, contemporary design and dynamic digital storytelling combine to create an immersive virtual showcase packed with personality and information that goes straight to the heart of the student experience.
Current students from across the disciplines of music, drama, dance, production and film and high-profile graduates including Sex Education’s Ncuti Gatwa, Outlander’s Sam Heughan and mezzo-soprano Svetlina Stoyanova of the Vienna State Opera, offer personal interviews and reflections of their time at RCS.
The prospectus has a stunning central image shot by acclaimed fashion and sports photographer Guy Farrow, who has worked with big names including the English National Ballet and Vivienne Westwood.
Captured over one day, on the stage of the Royal Conservatoire’s New Athenaeum Theatre, the shoot brought together a cast from across the conservatoire, photographed against the striking set of an RCS production.
Free downloadable app, Zappar, enables bonus content such as additional images and videos to be unlocked on smartphones and tablets. It includes exclusive alumni interviews from 2020 Oscar-nominated 1917 screenwriter Krysty Wilson-Cairns and multi-award-winning jazz pianist Fergus McCreadie.
Professor Jeffrey Sharkey, principal of the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, said: “At a time when the campus is closed and students and staff are studying and working remotely, our new prospectus offers an insight into our vibrant global community, which remains as creatively connected as ever.
“We believe the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland is a special place in many ways: a national conservatoire with an international perspective, with students from more than 60 countries and staff trained from the most innovative institutions worldwide.
“At RCS, we encourage our students to develop not just their art but their power to use it – and the world needs that now more than ever. We are looking forward to returning to our home in Glasgow and welcoming new and existing students through our doors and into our RCS family. For now, a very warm digital welcome to the world of the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, a place like nowhere else, and we look forward to meeting you in person soon.”
