This course is ideal for any applicant intending to progress in higher education or in a career within an art or design discipline. Delivered by the multi-disciplinary staff team of the Graduate Diploma at the RCA, this practical and advanced short course offers expert advice in the application process, in studio practice, academic skills, and technical support.
Following an initial instructive tutorial identifying specific progression aims and requirements, you will be taken through an intensive process of positioning and presenting your practice, critically engaging with your work, and leaving the course with a more distinctive portfolio.
Teaching and encouraging you to express yourself and your practice to a relevant audience, this interactive course also offers a valuable and productive opportunity for networking and collaboration.
The three-week programme includes both taught sessions and independent exercises. The exercises and activities are designed to support you in developing your portfolio.
By the end of the programme, you will have a portfolio developed in Adobe InDesign. This will involve key aspects such as self-branding and editorial strategy, a practitioner statement and the critical commentary to support the body of work.
RCA academic staff teaching this course are all practising artists and designers.
