Global Innovation Design (GID) is a joint Master's programme between the Royal College of Art and Imperial College London. It is a unique, transnational Master’s design initiative that brings together three major centres of design, culture, enterprise and industry: Europe, North America and Asia. 

GID is a multidisciplinary, multicultural and multinational design programme awarding both an MA from the Royal College of Art and an MSc from Imperial College London to graduates. GID offers an engaging global curriculum and provides powerful cultural experiences crafted to nurture innovators and designers who are prepared to take on the changing needs of enterprise in the twenty-first century. 

GID international partners include Pratt Institute (New York), Keio University (Tokyo), Nanyang Technological University (Singapore) and Tsinghua University (Beijing). Each of these distinctive institutions brings unique expertise and complementary approaches to design, engineering, business and cultural sensitivity, within the context of internationally oriented design innovation. 

The GID vision is to foster a transformative postgraduate experience that is unparalleled in the world, one that cultivates internationally oriented innovation and design leaders who can tackle complex problems and deliver positive social, environmental, economic and cultural change.

The GID ethos is to cultivate activated people, designers and leaders who are capable of making change in the world. Designers on the Global Innovation Design Master's programme will be expected to generate creative directions that other designers and innovators will follow.

The programme is full time and runs over a period of two calendar years. GID Master's candidates on the joint RCA/Imperial College programme begin their course in London for two terms developing their visions and a body of work which will be thematically and regionally developed throughout the next year and a half.

They have the opportunity to study on the New York/Tokyo route or the Beijing/Singapore route during their first and second years. They then return to London for the final two terms of their graduation year. Graduates from the programme are expected to be central to innovation leadership in the twenty-first century. 

Philosophically, GID challenges designers to ask who they are and what is most important to them; as authors of material culture they are asked what kind of world do they wish to create, and what contributions will they make. Global Innovation Designers create transformational culture. At the centre of the programme is the knowledge that transformational culture is engendered by objects and experiences that are the embodiment of the robustly beautiful and the exquisitely functional combined.

The GID Master's programme offers:

  • a double Master's: MA Royal College of Art and MSc Imperial College London – students are fully enrolled at both institutions
  • programme includes study at world renowned institutions: route one, Keio University in Tokyo and the Pratt Institute in New York, and route 2, Tsinghua University in Beijing and Nanyang Technical University in Singapore
  • the first two terms of the first year are in London, where designers participate in the GID London Core
  • a diverse and international mix of students
  • teaching staff who are highly experienced practitioners and work professionally in their field
  • potential enterprise and commercialisation support through the InnovationRCA incubator
  • leadership skills for design-related enterprises operating in international environments
  • high-level graduate destinations: RCA and Imperial alumni work in international corporations, global consultancies as well as new self-started commercial enterprises

London – Tokyo – New York

Study on the Tokyo/New York route route gives access to Keio University, well known for physical computing and social design interventions, as well as Pratt Institute, renowned for a tradition of excellence in industrial design. 

London – Beijing – Singapore

Study on the Beijing/Singapore route gives access to Tsinghua University, China's number one institution with world class design labs and studios, as well as Nanyang Technical University's School of Art, Design, and Media whose cutting edge programmes in new media and cultural and social design innovation situate it as a leader in emerging Asian and Global design.

At Tsinghua University, London-based students will benefit from studying at the top University in China, gaining first-hand experience of the culture of China and designing with both new and traditional materials in the context of emerging Asian design.

At Nanyang Technical University, London-based students will be exposed to a rich and varied Pan-Asian community. NTU offers world-class communication and video production instruction with cultural understanding at the core. NTU is expert in the practice of “value transmigration”, how to translate a culturally specific artefact into a viable product-service-system in a new cultural context.

Epidemiology is the study of the distribution, causes, and possible prevention and control, of diseases in populations.

The MSc in Epidemiology offers training in the methodology, design, conduct and interpretation of epidemiological studies on chronic and infectious diseases. It is particularly suitable for students who wish to acquire skills in epidemiology and biostatistics, and to get involved with research projects.

  • In the first term, all students follow a common core pathway covering epidemiological methods, biostatistics, and infectious and chronic disease epidemiology.
  • Term two modules aim to reflect areas of emerging research as well as providing extended tutoring in core epidemiological and statistical concepts and skills, building upon the knowledge, insight and skills gained in term one.
  • The third term consists of a four-month research project carried out under supervision, possibly in collaboration with other universities and research institutions.

Upon completion of this course, students usually develop an academic career by beginning a PhD, or move on to work for public health organisations, pharmaceutical companies or non-governmental agencies.

Core modules:

INTRODUCTION TO INFECTIOUS DISEASE MODELLING

This module provides an overview of infectious disease modelling and develops skills in designing and analysing infectious disease models for public health policy. Students will be taught how to represent the characteristics of an infectious disease using a mathematical model, how to simulate that model using a computer, and how to analyse that model. Students will also learn how models have been applied in public health policy, and how models are designed to address a research question. Module leader: Dr Nim Pathy.

PRINCIPLES AND METHODS OF EPIDEMIOLOGY

This module ensures students will be familiar with the core concepts of epidemiology and acquire the skills necessary to describe, analyse, interpret and appraise epidemiological studies. Further modules and projects require such knowledge, and a good grasp of these basics is thus essential for successful completion of the degree. Module leaders: Dr Amanda Cross and Dr Filippos Filippidis.

DISEASE MASTERCLASS

This module aims to provide students with an overview of core health challenges and lines of epidemiological research being undertaken, across a range of infectious and non-communicable diseases. Module leader: Professor Tim Hallett.

INTRODUCTION TO STATISTICAL THINKING AND DATA ANALYSIS

The aim of this module is to give students an understanding of the importance of statistical thinking in epidemiology, randomised trials and public health, to enable them to critically evaluate the results of standard statistical analyses published in journal articles and to carry out a range of statistical analyses using R. Module leaders: Dr Victoria Cornelius and Hilary Watt.

The new MRes (Masters of Research) in Healthcare & Design is an interdisciplinary programme that draws on the complementary knowledge and expertise of Imperial College London and the Royal College of Art.

The programme aims to equip candidates from a wide range of academic and professional practice backgrounds with the tools and techniques to instigate and lead design innovations in a broad range of healthcare environments. Teaching takes place in the RCA and St Mary’s Hospital with a course that is particularly well tailored to those who aim to study alongside employment with eight intensive modules delivered in ‘burst mode’ (four per year in two 2-week blocks) and a supervised major personal design research project. The teaching is delivered in a mix of lectures and practical workshops in group and individual projects where designers, healthcare professionals and clinicians work together often in group based activities to enhance knowledge exchange.

Contexts for healthcare innovation are broad ranging from the physical and psychological to surgery, recuperation and recovery, therapy, transport, services and software. We expect outputs from this course to be implementable in the healthcare industry ranging from product and technology innovations through to software solutions, spatial and architectural to new experience and service designs.

The course builds on the longstanding partnerships between the RCA and Imperial College in developing joint courses since the 1980s. The Helen Hamlyn Centre for design has delivered over 150 healthcare and user centred projects while the Helix Centre at St Mary’s Hospital is the first design studio in a clinical setting and brings designers and clinicians together for the first time to solve healthcare challenges using lean innovation strategy. A key objective of the Helix Centre is to catalyse more innovative approaches to healthcare service delivery with better design and planning, more efficient use of resources and greater focus on patient need. The programme runs in parallel with the MSc in Healthcare Innovation at Imperial sharing aspects of course content in a way that is deliberately designed to bridge the gap between design-driven innovation and the healthcare context. This unique body of expertise feeds back into the MRes programme though teaching, supervision and mentoring.

The programme offers:

  • The opportunity to develop an awareness of the role and value of design in solving healthcare challenges
  • A multi-professional perspective on problem-solving and the importance of clinical/design team collaboration
  • An awareness of the UK health system and the systemic challenges it faces to remain sustainable
  • An environment in which to develop the design led innovation skills to rapidly research, synthesise and prototype a solution to a healthcare challenge
  • The opportunity to work alongside a world-class faculty, who can provide knowledge-based learning and encourage critical awareness of current issues
  • A range of research techniques, tools and frameworks for use in the fields of design and innovation

PLEASE NOTE: Due to UK Visas and Immigration Service visa restrictions on part-time courses, we are only able to offer places for UK Home/EU applicants. International applicants are currently not eligible.
