Central recognised as a ‘world-leading’ specialist provider by the Office for Students


The Royal Central School of Speech and Drama has once again been recognised as a ‘world-leading’ specialist provider by the Office for Students (OfS). 

The designation was made as part of a wider funding review of specialist institutions in which the OfS asked institutions to demonstrate ‘a level of quality and expertise (in a subject area) that gives a provider an ongoing reputation internationally as being among the finest in the world’. 

Central Principal and CEO Josette Bushell-Mingo OBE said: 

“This welcome news is an external recognition of the work and impact of Central. It also means we must work harder to maintain this – together with our students and staff. This is an important moment and I look forward to our continued journey.” 

The outcome of the review acknowledges Central’s global reputation, the exceptional quality of its teaching and staff, and the positive impact the School makes on the wider arts sector.  This includes the enormous contributions of Central’s alumni community to the performing arts industries, as well as within cultural, educational, social and community settings around the world.
