Research Centres Virtual Open Day

23 November 2020 | 12.30pm – 2pm

Online on Zoom

If you’re considering postgraduate research at the Royal College of Art, you’ll likely have questions about programmes, the people, the application process and College experience. There's no better way to find out if the RCA is the place for you than by getting to know us at the Research Centres virtual Open Day on Monday 23 November 2020.

Attendees will have the opportunity to:

  • learn more about the RCA,
  • discover more about the RCA’s Research Centres and PhD programmes
  • talk to academic staff and students.

In light of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, we have suspended all on-campus open days until further notice. The virtual open day offers the closest alternative to meeting academics and learning about research centres’ programmes in person.
