And being part of a collective of inspirational creative peers means that through collaboration you will find the path you want to take.

"I mainly expected this experience to help me develop my architectural skills, however it has given much more than just that. It has transformed the way I think as an individual as well as an architect and helped me make decisions about my future career."
Ameneh Solati, MA Architecture, 2015 -17

Our Global Creative Community

Students come to the College from across the globe and bring with them a wide range of backgrounds, educational approaches and experiences. Studying here means you'll be part of a network of inspiring students in a city known for creative culture. Both the RCA and London as a whole are hubs of activity; full of places where you can socialise, explore and make new discoveries.

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.

Our facilities and technical equipment are amongst the best of their kind in the world and support students in their explorations of the creative possibilities of the new and the traditional.

Scholarships and funding

The RCA is able to run a number of scholarship and bursary schemes thanks to the generosity of our donors. Visit our website for more information about our schemes and how to be considered for them. There are also Government funded options for both our Master's degrees and for our doctoral research Programmes (for UK students).
