The 2022 Arts, Drama & Music league table was published today.

The Royal Conservatoire of Scotland has an overall score of 100%.

In second place is London’s Guildhall School of Music & Drama.

In the global QS rankings, MIT came top as usual with a perfect 100.

Next are Oxford, Stanford, Cambridge and Harvard.

Edinburgh came 16th, Glasgow 73rd, Cardiff 151st.


  • La belle plus voix says:

    Meaningless tables when parameters like “student satisfaction” and “current income” are used.

  • Maria says:

    Meaningless. And no mention of the Leeds Conservatoire formerly Leeds College of Music.

  • Scottish Musician says:

    But in a different league table Edinburgh Uni was 4th, Glasgow Uni 8th, and the RCS 11th.

    Is it possible that these tables are all a load of rubbish?
