The Royal Conservatoir of Scotland, in partnership with Sabhal Mòr Ostaig, is offering this Masters degree for arts practitioners who work within the Gaelic culture.

This programme is aimed at Gaelic speaking actors, musicians, singers, fine artists, theatre, film and television professionals, designers, writers and directors who wish to develop as educators in a range of contexts. The programme gives you the opportunity to deepen your understanding of Gaelic culture, develop knowledge, skills and understanding required to deliver and assess effective educational experiences, and to design and generate a piece of work that contributes to the evolution of your area within the Gaelic arts education sector.

The programme will be delivered predominantly online supported by a series of face-to-face weekends and short residential periods at RCS and at Sabhal Mòr Ostaig in Skye.

This programme is designed to run on a part-time basis to allow you to maintain your own professional commitments and to situate a significant portion of your learning within a work-based context.


Fees and Funding

Full funding is available for this course to Scottish-domiciled students.
