The Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama (Welsh: Coleg Brenhinol Cerdd a Drama Cymru) is a prestigious conservatoire located in Cardiff. It is a constituent college of the University of Wales.

The College was established in 1949 as Cardiff College of Music at Cardiff Castle, but has since moved to purpose-built accommodation within the castle grounds of Bute Park near Cardiff University. It later changed its name to the Welsh College of Music & Drama before being awarded its Royal title in The Queen's Golden Jubilee in 2002, making it the sixth conservatoire to be awarded this title. The College's degrees have always been awarded by the University of Wales, but it was not until 2004 that the College became part of the federal university.

The college provides education and training in the performing arts, with approximately two-thirds of its 550 students studying music related courses and the rest studying drama related courses.

The College has undergraduate degrees in the following areas:

  • BA Acting
  • BMus Music
  • BA Stage Management
  • BA Theatre Design

The College also has postgraduate degrees in the following areas;

  • MMus Music
  • PGradDip Music
  • MA Music Therapy
  • PGradDip Stage Management/ Technical Theatre
  • PGradDip Theatre Design
  • PGradDip Lighting Design
