Scholarship opportunities

The Royal College of Art feels that it is critical to establish obvious avenues to education. A considerable number of scholarships are available to both UK and international students. Awards like the Logitech Scholarship program help students from underrepresented groups, while others like the Märit Rausing Scholarships in Ceramics & Glass help students study in specialized fields.

Graduate diploma

The Graduate Diploma in Art & Design is intended to provide full preparation for admission to a Master’s program. Students participate in a global creative cohort for 30 weeks, collaborating and refining their art and design practice.

The program provides on-campus, online, or dual-learning study options and reflects the interdisciplinary structure of a Master’s degree, in which students select a specialization to study. A distinction on the Graduate Diploma secures students admission to MA and MRes studies in their field of study (subject to requirements and availability).

Apply by Monday April 3, 2023 to start the Graduate Diploma in May 2023.
