Overview

Established in 1837, the Royal College of Art is the world’s oldest art and design university in continuous operation, with a tradition of innovation and excellence in creative education.

In 2019, the RCA was ranked as the number one Art and Design university in the world – for the fifth consecutive year – by the QS World University Subject Rankings.

The RCA is wholly postgraduate, offering a Graduate Diploma conversion programme and Master’s, MPhil, MRes and PhD degrees. Based around the four Schools of Architecture, Arts & Humanities, Communication and Design, the broad range of disciplines on offer is based on a strong foundation of practice-based research and integrates STEAM subjects - Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics - providing a unique and transformative experience.

Our London campus is spread throughout the heart of one of the world’s most creative cities, with sites in the historic surroundings of Kensington, the future-thinking hub of White City and the cultural quarter in Battersea. Surrounded by some of the most important cultural institutions – from the BBC to the V&A, the Serpentine Gallery and the Natural History Museum – and leading creative spaces, inspiration is just outside the studio doors.
