Summary

In February 2019 the RCA was named the world’s leading art and design university for the fifth consecutive year in the QS World University subject rankings.

The School of Design is home to internationally significant research, much of which is practice-based. The teaching areas of the School – Design Products, Fashion, Global Innovation Design, Innovation Designing Engineering, Intelligent Mobility, Service Design and Textiles – represent a wide range of approaches to research.

Research topics range from those which are strongly needs-focused – such as designing new forms of medical equipment – to those which are more speculative – such as considering the philosophy of computer games. The research methods you adopt will be attuned to your subject: you may use established methods or develop your own.

Programme details PhD: 3-4 years (full time), 6-7 years (part time) MPhil: 2-3 years (full time), 4-6 years (part time)
