Royal College of ArtThis is one of London's most prestigious art colleges and the world's only wholly postgraduate university of art and design. You will need at least a BA degree to be considered for one of their MA, MPhil and PhD courses. The curriculum is varied, well taught and extremely demanding. Students will learn to use all mediums and will be schooled in the skills necessary to succeed as artists - including networking. There are regular student work-in-progress exhibitions and visiting exhibitions open to the public. Situated on Kensington Gore, facing Hyde Park and next to the Royal Albert Hall, the RCA is part of a cluster of colleges and museums including the Victoria and Albert Museum which were built as for the Great Exhibition of 1851.
