Open Days

If you are considering applying to the College for 2017/18, you can prepare for your application by researching the academic programmes offered by each of the Schools, and accessing the following pages: ApplicationsApplication Guidance, and Fees & Funding

Open Days are held at the Royal College of Art between November and January of each academic year, to enable applicants to visit the College and meet staff and students, as well as during the graduate exhibition in June. Each programme has one or two Open Days, so that you get a chance to ask any questions you may have before applying.
