The latest results demonstrate the College’s reputation by scoring 100% (2021: 100%) for academic reputation and 96.1% (2021: 96.2%) for employer reputation.
Dr Paul Thompson, Vice-Chancellor of the Royal College of Art, said:
“To be ranked the number one art and design university for the eighth consecutive year is testament to the fantastic talents of our students and staff.
“This year – our 185th anniversary – will see us open our new campus in Battersea, an important step in the RCA's evolution into a new kind of design-focused postgraduate university. Traditional arts and humanities disciplines sit side by side with specialist lab facilities for researchers in computer science, material science and robotics.
“As we speak, the cross-disciplinary work of our students and staff is tackling global challenges such as ageing populations, sustainability, rapid urbanisation and artificial intelligence. We’re proud to be the launchpad for the world’s creative leaders working at the intersection of art, science and technology.
“We’ll continue to invest and innovate to keep us and our students at the forefront of global creativity.”
The RCA leads the table of around one hundred of the world’s top universities for the study of art and design, ahead of much larger institutions around the globe including Stanford University and Massachusetts Institute of Technology and large art and design providers, such as Parsons School of Design and the New School University in New York.
