The School of Architecture’s two-year Master’s programmes offer a unique depth of study into architecture and interior design. Our design studios are firmly set within contemporary international contexts, and invite informed speculation and counterproposal.
What marks out the RCA as a distinctive environment for architects and interior designers are the opportunities it offers to realise live projects, and to work alongside designers and fine artists in a concentrated, postgraduateonly environment. Students from the School of Architecture are able to collaborate with students from the Schools of Material, Design and Fine Art, or participate in AcrossRCA projects, drawing upon the expertise and facilities of fellow students from programmes as diverse as Textiles, Design Products or Sculpture.
Students on our programme benefit from the support of prominent practitioners from architecture and engineering, and are able to take part in industry-funded projects that can lead to production. The Live Project programme includes the Helix (Healthcare Innovation Exchange) Centre, a joint initiative between the Royal College of Art and Imperial College London. This pioneering centre, designed by RCA Architecture students, was built at St Mary’s Hospital Paddington and provides a workspace pavilion for researchers to focus on cost-effective, high-impact, design-led initiatives that can transform healthcare.
Some students are assisted with bursaries and prizes related to their activities as well as sponsored internships, work placements and research projects. Student work is frequently exhibited at the RCA, and in prestigious museums and galleries across London and abroad.
