The Royal Conservatoire, together with the Royal Academy of Art, forms the University of the Arts The Hague. We offer HBO bachelor and master education, various preparatory courses, and in collaboration with Leiden University electives and a PhD programme.

Studying at the Royal Conservatoire (KC) means studying at the oldest conservatory in the Netherlands, where experiment and innovation go hand in hand with tradition and craft. An inspiring learning environment where top international musicians and top dancers teach. Our education and research is about creating, recreating and presenting.

In early 2022, the Royal Conservatoire will move to its glorious new home called ‘Amare’ in the city centre of The Hague, where it will share facilities with the Residentie Orkest and Nederlands Dans Theater.
