Work Experience

The RSNO accepts student placements from schools, colleges and universities across the UK. Placements are allocated on a first come first served basis.
Applications for Work Experience are taken throughout the academic year.

Young Ambassadors

Since 2013, the RSNO has run a Young Ambassadors programme with up to 20 participants each year from all over Scotland: the Western Isles to Dumfries and Galloway, the Highlands to Argyll and Bute.

This year the Young Ambassadors programme is open to young people aged between 16–21 years old. Ambassadors attend RSNO concerts for free, meet the musicians and conductors and operate as a youth advisory board for the RSNO, feeding into the main RSNO Board.


RSNO Takeover is a two-day intensive work experience, open to anyone aged 16–18 years at the time of the event and living in Scotland. Applications are invited from any young person interested in a career in the arts or creative industries, regardless of whether you play a musical instrument or not.

14–18 Year Olds

The RSNO has a limited number of free tickets available for 14–18 year olds who are interested in classical music to allow them to attend RSNO concerts with friends.
Available for all RSNO Season concerts in Glasgow, Edinburgh, Aberdeen and Dundee, 14–18 year olds can book tickets for up to two concerts per Season.
Proof of age will be required before tickets can be issued so please bring this with you on the evening of the performance.
Please note there are a limited number of 14–18 tickets available per performance. Please book early to avoid disappointment.
To apply for these tickets, please call the Engage team on 0141 225 3557 or click here to email.
