General

Program Description

Study at the World's number one ranked art and design university for six consecutive years (2015-2020) in the QS World University Subject Rankings.

About the Programme

The MRes RCA Architecture Pathway offers training in practice-led and practice-based research methods, complementing the shared arts and humanities research methods taught across the College as part of the MRes RCA.

We encourage interdisciplinary research projects in collaboration with other Schools within the RCA and external partners. We have a strong emphasis on practice-led and experimental research, preparing graduates for diverse careers in academia, architectural and urban design practices, human rights organisations, and social and environmental coalitions.

We offer a range of specialisms that focus on the interface of research and practice, training in practice-led and practice-based research by working on ‘live’ case studies and projects within the field with respected external partners. You’ll become part of a vibrant research community at the RCA and within London.
