Royal College of Art
The Royal College of Art is the world's leading university of art and design. Specialising in teaching and research, the RCA offers degrees across the disciplines of architecture, arts & humanities, design and communication.
A small, specialist and research-intensive postgraduate university based in the heart of London, the RCA's approach is founded on the premise that art, design, creative thinking, science, engineering and technology must all collaborate to solve today's global challenges.
RCA students are exposed to new knowledge in a way that encourages them to experiment.
Alumni include David Adjaye, Christopher Bailey, Monster Chetwynd, David Hockney, Tracey Emin, Thomas Heatherwick, Lubaina Himid, Clare Waight Keller and Rose Wylie.
Through its postgraduate focus, executive education programmes and knowledge exchange frameworks, the RCA is committed to the principles and benefits of lifelong education.
The RCA’s ambition is to prepare its graduates to innovate and tackle the major global trends currently facing us, including an ageing population, technological advances and climate change.
As adult learners become more engaged with the social and environmental challenges that present themselves, alongside a rise in the proportion of people having portfolio careers, learners will want to develop the creative and design-thinking expertise that will equip them to pivot and maximise the transferability of their skills and experience
