The School of Humanities at the RCA welcomes prospective students to our forthcoming open days. This is an opportunity to visit the campus in Kensington, meet academic staff, interact with current students and explore the college and its surroundings.

The School offers three ground-breaking two-year Masters programmes in Critical Writing in Art and Design, Curating Contemporary Art and V&A/RCA History of Design. Our graduates go on to prestigious careers in the arts and academia, as curators, writers and historians.

Open days will be held in November and December, for year of entry 2015/6. The deadline for application is 16 January 2015. Interviews will be held in February and March 2015.


Critical Writing in Art & Design, led by Professor David Crowley
Open Day: 12 December
Contact [email protected] to reserve a place

The Critical Writing programme is committed to the idea that writing and criticism are creative practices in their own right, with their own techniques, ethics and technologies. Students explore new ways of writing about contemporary art and design at a time when the media is undergoing considerable change, publishing their work and established significant professional profiles by the time they graduate.

Meet the writers and academics who teach on the programme, and hear about the innovative range of student work in publishing, the media, and the arts at the open day.


Curating Contemporary Art, led by Professor Victoria Walsh
Open Day: 4 December
Contact [email protected] and reserve a place.

Internationally recognised for a studio-based teaching model which integrates theory and practice, the CCA programme is at the forefront of curatorial experimentation and research. Working with London-based and national art venues, the programme explores commissioning, exhibition-making, programming and writing. Its annual student-curated show has become known for introducing new international artists to UK audiences, and is an essential part of the London contemporary arts calendar.

To meet the team of curators and academics who teach on the programme, and to hear about recent and live student projects at the open day.


V&A/RCA History of Design, led by Dr Sarah Teasley (RCA) and Dr Marta Ajmar (V&A)
Open Day: 21 November
Contact [email protected] to book a place.

The V&A/RCA History of Design programme is widely regarded as the international leader in its field. Run jointly by the RCA and V&A, the programme affords significant opportunities to work with the collections and curators of a world-renowned museum, alongside cutting edge contemporary design practice at RCA.

Meet the team of historians who teach on the programme, visit V&A student facilities, hear about current student research projects and the range of careers which it can prepare you for at the open day.


If you are unable to attend an open day, we are happy to arrange a conversation with an appropriate tutor, either in person or by telephone.
