You're invited to join our free online discussion about our EAP programme, a unique art and design-specific pre-sessional English.

Join our English for academic purposes (EAP) team to learn more about our unique art and design pre-sessional English course.

Unlike traditional English language courses, our EAP program is uniquely designed to prepare you for academic success in art and design disciplines. We're proud to have earned accreditation from BALEAP, underscoring our commitment to meeting the specific academic requirements of the art and design fields.

This is the perfect opportunity to ask your questions in a group setting, and meet with fellow students and applicants.

What to expect

Our virtual events are much more like conversations. You are very welcome to switch on your webcam and ask questions, but if you prefer to remain off-camera and listen, that’s perfectly fine too.

We are opening two sessions for the day to allow students from different parts of the world to join us.

Please register for ONLY one session as it will be a repeated session.

Session 1: 9:00-10:15 BST

9:00 - Introduction to the RCA EAP Pre-Sessional Programme for Art and Design

9:10 - Taster workshop - Talking about your practice

10:00 - Alumni share experience of the pre-sessional course
