New Graduates

As a graduate of the College you are automatically a member of the RCA alumni community: a successful, international network of over 20,000 practising artists, designers and communication professionals – some of the best in their fields. 

Your alumni relations programme is here to provide you with continued support, and to help you stay connected to the College and one another. 

Here are just some of the services you can start benefiting from:

Invitation to Show RCA Private View 

Graduates from the past three years automatically receive invitations to Show RCA Private Views. Invitations are sent by post, so it's important to keep us up-to-date with your address details to ensure you receive yours. Update your details here.

Email for Life

Continue to use your email for personal or professional purposes. We'll also be using this address to send you important communications from the RCA, but do update your contact preferences via our online update form if you'd prefer to receive them at an alternative address.


FuelRCA offers Royal Designer Mentoring and PwC Mentoring programmes for recent graduates, as well as, professional development and business support through the Fuel Helpline and Imperial College Careers services. 


InnovationRCA is the Royal College of Art’s centre for incubation and business support, helping graduates transform compelling ideas into successful businesses.

DLHE survey

The Destinations of Leavers from Higher Education (DLHE) survey offers all newly graduated students the opportunity to say what they have been doing six months after graduation. The survey is very important as it enables the College to find out what its graduates go on to do after their RCA education. For more details on the survey, see here.

"When you graduate from Royal College of Art you become part of an international network of creative individuals who have shaped, and who continue to shape, the culture surrounding all of us: from the work we experience in galleries to the cars we drive; from the landscape of our cities to the furniture and appliances in our homes; and from the clothes we wear to the films we watch at the cinema."
