The Royal College of Art, the world’s number one art and design university, provides students with unrivalled opportunities to deliver art and design projects that transform the world. A small, specialist and research-intensive postgraduate university based in the heart of London, the RCA is a high performing institution, a radical traditionalist in a fast paced world. The RCA’s approach is founded on the premise that art, design creative thinking, science, engineering and technology must all collaborate to solve today’s global challenges.
The university employs around 1,000 professionals from around the world – professors, researchers, art and design practitioners, advisers and visiting lecturers – to teach and develop students in 30 academic programmes. RCA students are exposed to new knowledge in a way that encourages them to experiment. Working across scientific and technical canvases and beyond set boundaries, RCA students seek to solve real-world problems.
The College sustains a tradition of creative and intellectual excellence combined with a modern work culture that supports diversity, equal opportunity and work/life balance.
The work environment at the RCA supports the dual missions of research and education. Regardless of individual roles, the College values each person’s contribution and offers professional development through opportunities for on-site learning as well support for career advancement and development. Our aim is to improve the quality of the professional experience by enabling our staff to engage fully in a vibrant and stimulating workplace.
