Open Days

Open Days are open to prospective students thinking of studying at the Royal College of Art. Attendees will have the opportunity to learn more about the RCA and hear from academic staff and students.

Due to ongoing social distancing measures in place from COVID-19, we have moved our open days online. These online events will give you the opportunity to find out more about our programmes, hear from staff and students and ask questions and find out more about life at the RCA. Details of forthcoming events will be listed on this page as soon as they are confirmed. To be notified of future dates, please fill out our Enquiry to Study form.

Replays of the talks from our last College-wide Virtual Open Day on 17 October 2020 are available to view here.
