History of Design Staff
The programme is managed jointly by the RCA and V&A Heads of Programme, with academic tutors and a programme administrator located in both the RCA School of Humanities and the V&A Research Department.
All of the College’s academic staff are practitioners in art, design or related disciplines. We also attract some of the most eminent artists, designers, intellectuals and business people working in their fields to give seminars, lectures, masterclasses, crits and individual tutorials.
Biographies and Research Profiles of programme staff can be found under Staff.
