"I've always said the best thing about the Royal College of Art was receiving that letter saying that I got in, and after that it went downhill... But, of course, that's not true. Twenty-two years on from receiving that letter I look back at my time there and realise how lucky and how honoured I was to get a place." Tracey Emin

Painting graduate, 1989

"At the RCA I became aware of myself as an artist." David Hockney

Painting graduate, 1962
