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

Over 200 £10k HEFCE/RCA Postgraduate Support Scheme (PSS) bursaries are available for eligible incoming 2015 graduates alongside a £6k College bursary. The School of Humanities is offering an Open Day aimed specifically at students wishing to apply to these schemes. Held at our Kensington campus on Monday 13 April, from 2–4pm, attendees will have the opportunity to meet key staff along with students. Alternatively, you are welcome to arrange a different time to speak directly with a tutor, either in person or on the telephone.
