Research-led and practice-led teaching by staff and visiting tutors ensures the curatorial and artistic significance, intellectual value and critical vitality of the programme.
Students undertake a graduate project with external high-profile partners as well as an independent research-based dissertation. You’ll gain an awareness of wider social, political and economic contexts and an understanding of transnational contexts and issues of diversity and inclusion.
What our students say "There is at the RCA a sense of community that I hadn’t witnessed in other universities. Being surrounded by talented artists and creators is also very inspiring. The ability to meet with academic staff and the RCAs incredibly talented technicians really surprised me too. The graduate project was definitely one of the highlights of my experience at RCA. Working with partners to design a project from scratch was a great opportunity. The RCA teaching staff provided support in the process but also gave us a lot of freedom and independence. " - Anna DuFour Montuori (Curating Contemporary Art, 2018)
