Join our on-campus Open Studio Evening to get a glimpse of studio life at the RCA's School of Architecture.

What to expect

Attending our Open Studio Evening at the School of Architecture will give you a glimpse into what studio life is like within the School's City Design MA, Environmental Architecture MA and Interior Design MA programmes as well as introducing you to our new Design Practice MArch programme (please note this programme is not Part 2 ARB/RIBA validated), starting in September 2024.

The event will provide an opportunity to learn more about the School, meet with current students, ask all your questions about student life and studying in London and get useful advice from our academic staff for applying to the RCA.

After the studio tours, there is the option to stay for the Ascensions lecture as part of our annual Public Lecture Series curated by MA Architecture Tutor, Thomas Aquilina and MA City Design Tutor, Charlotte Grace. The lecture will take place from 7pm at the Art Lounge, Frayling Building, Kensington.
