The RSAMD's alumni includes James McAvoy and David Tennant
Students from the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama (RSAMD) will take their campaign against funding cuts to the Scottish Parliament later.
The students claim the cuts of £600,000 - announced earlier this year - could compromise the academy's reputation as well as their classes.
The RSAMD blames long-term underfunding for its current financial position.
Student representatives will ask MSPs for their support in preventing redundancies.
They claim that the academy is now at the most critical point in its 163-year history.
Their next move is to contact famous alumni - among them James McAvoy, David Tennant and Ruby Wax - to ask them to join the campaign.
