The RCA Virgil Abloh Scholarship
Where will the RCA take you?
Current students and alumni at different stages of their studies and careers tell us about how the MA/MSc Global Innovation Design (GID) programme helped expand their design practice – from experiencing international travel and cultural exchange to bringing ideas to life with the support of their fellow students.
Domhnall Nolan (MA Interior Design, 2021) balanced their studies with work as senior interior designer for Soho House. They discuss the creative freedom afforded to them at the RCA, bringing a queer perspective to their practice and shaping projects from the UK and Europe to South America and East Asia.
From MA Architecture to MRes Healthcare & Design via a residency at the Design Museum, Stiliyana Minkovska’s multidisciplinary approach to her practice is challenging the status quo in one of the most universal aspects of healthcare – childbirth. We spoke to the designer about her path to MRes study, her reimagining of the birthing environment through Ultima Thule and working with the NHS and AstraZeneca.
