  • Recruitment event

You're invited to join the world's number 1 art and design university at Art Dubai!

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 what are the essential strategies in creating a compelling art and design portfolio?

You’re invited to meet Professor Naren Barfield (Deputy Vice Chancellor and Provost) and Professor Ken Neil (Dean of the School of Arts & Humanities) on 3 March 2024, for an in-person conversation addressing these talking points - and many more.

What to expect

The event will be between 18:00 and 20:00. A detailed agenda will be shared nearer the time.

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 Arts and Humanities
  • 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.
