College-Wide Open Day

Royal College of Art Schools traditionally hold their Open Days in winter. This year, as many graduating students have yet to decide which programmes and institutions offer the right match for their skills and ambitions, every School will hold an Open Day/Show Preview on Saturday 25 June 2016.

ShowRCA opens to the public the following day, on Sunday 26 June 2016.

We look forward to welcoming you to the College
