Royal College of Art

Course Introduction

This programme recognises that design is an activity that fundamentally shapes our world and influences the processes of change; students find their own place, from where they can lead or contribute to these processes; although there is a focus on product and furniture design, there are no limitations to this field; students come to understand very well that most of tomorrow's products and services do not yet exist today; the nature of the course is pluralistic and encourages diversity in thinking, opinions and ideologies.

Course Modules

Topics may include: extreme functionality; the social manifesto; the fantastic; design in business; basic electronics and engineering for designers; computer software.

Good Honours degree in a relevant subject, or overseas equivalent; portfolio; interview. Applicants are required to be proficient in both written and spoken English.
