“The location of the College is remarkable because it is in central London, the V&A and the Design Museum are close. There’s so many galleries and exhibitions that one can visit. London is amazing. It's big so you can never get bored!”

RCA Design Products MA student

“London is diverse, vibrant and inspired... With so much happening in this city, there’s always something to do, see or experience. When I’m not busy working in the studio or library, I find myself visiting many museums and sampling new cuisines. What a place to be!”

RCA Intelligent Mobility MA student

Founded in 1837, today the RCA is located across a three-site campus:

  • Kensington
  • Battersea
  • White City

Our state-of-the-art facilities and collaborative learning spaces, combined with our central London location, create an exciting environment that supports both personal and professional growth, and maximises learning potential.

In 2022 we celebrated the opening of the RCA’s new state-of-the-art research and innovation campus designed by Herzog & de Meuron in Battersea and the return of in person executive masterclasses and short courses.

'The top floor spaces have been specifically designed for the delivery of Executive Education. It's an incredible space with windows all around and 360 degree views across London - simply put, it's a really lovely, immersive, inspiring place to learn.' Hattie Allen, Executive Education Manager
