The Royal College of Art will be in Barcelona, Spain on 11 April 2024!

Studying at the Royal College of Art places you at the heart of London: a city internationally renowned for its creativity, culture and diversity. What do prospective students need to know about living and studying in the UK? And how can you develop your own critically-engaged creative practice?

You’re invited to meet Dr Elise Hodson, Dr Carla Amaral and Dr Bjorn Sommer (Tutors from the School of Design) in Barcelona, Spain on 11 April, 2024 for an in-person conversation addressing these talking points and many more.

What to expect

7.15pm - Guests welcome to arrive, refreshments served

7.30pm - Presentations from the School of Design at the RCA, followed by Q&A and conversation

9.00pm - End

We'd love you to join for all parts of the event but if you can only join for part of it, that's fine too.

Who is this event for

  • Those interested in postgraduate study at the Royal College of Art, particularly at the School of Design
  • Current RCA applicants and offer-holders
  • Parents, guardians and family members are also welcome to join, though please ensure they have a ticket

You don't have to specialise in any discipline to attend this event: we welcome guests planning to apply to all subject areas. Our speakers specialise in the School of Design, but will be happy to offer more generalised guidance about other RCA Schools.
