Future Facing Tech

Students coming to the RCA obtain funding from many different sources. Some are lucky enough to win scholarships and sponsorship, while some have managed to save money from working. It is impossible to list all the potential funding sources however the following information could be useful.

The pages set out below are updated as new funding options become known so please ensure you return to check these pages.

Please note, these are non-exhaustive lists of funding options and the College does not endorse any particular means or option for funding. We encourage all prospective students to do their own research.
