The Royal College of Art will be in Seoul, South Korea on 23 October 2023.

Studying at the Royal College of Art places you at the heart of London: a city internationally renowned for its creativity, culture and diversity - the perfect place to develop your creative career in. What do prospective students need to know about living and studying in the UK? And how can you prepare yourself for applying to the world's number 1 university for art and design?

You’re invited to meet Dr Christina Youngmi Choi (Head of Programme, Design Products MA at the Royal College of Art) in Seoul on 23 October 2023, for an in-person conversation addressing these talking points and many more.

We hope you will join us after the talk for conversation and refreshments.

Before the event, Dr Choi will be available for informal, one-to-one portfolio reviews, which you can book in advance. We ask that you kindly only book one slot to allow others to attend.
