Open Days

Open Days are held at the Royal College of Art between November and January of each academic year, to enable applicants to visit the College and meet staff and students. Each programme has one or two Open Days, so that you get a chance to ask any questions you may have before applying. 

Dates of individual programme Open Days will be provided below, along with contact details for enquiries. Please email the administrator to register unless noted below.

If you are considering applying to the College for 2015/16, you can prepare for your application by researching the academic programmes offered by each of the Schools, and accessing the following pages: Applications, Application Guidance, and Fees & Funding.
 The deadline for priority applications has now passed, but all programmes (with the exception of Global Innovation Design) will consider late applications.

School of Humanities

The School of Humanities offers regular open days and also the chance to meet tutors for a one-to-one discussion about our MA programmes in Critical Writing in Art & Design, Curating Contemporary Art, V&A/RCA History of Design, and Research Degrees in the School.

Please contact for further information or to arrange a visit or phone/skype conversation with a tutor, stating the programme you are interested in.
