The Royal College of Art lies within London’s hub of historic museums and universities giving it access to a huge range of activities and events. 

The College is partnered with institutions including the Science Museum, Imperial College London, the Royal College of Music, and the Victoria and Albert Museum, both in research and business, giving it a truly prestigious network. 

Every year the College hosts free and public-facing series of RCA Talks across Fine Art, Architecture and Design, featuring some of the best-known names in their field. Over the years, students have had the opportunity to hear creative luminaries including Gianni Versace, Thomas Hirschhorn, David Chipperfield, David Hockney and Ezio Manzini.

Internally, visiting professorships and artist residences give students access to workshops and crits with creative pioneers, including performance artist and video pioneer Joan Jonas, Dr Jieun Kim, formerly of Arts et Métiers ParisTech, and Dr Suchitra Balasubrahmanyan.
