This exhibition and symposium will look at the research projects and cross-disciplinary dialogues undertaken by this year’s graduating MRes students, with installations, performances and lectures throughout the day. Free and open to the public.

Situated within the Royal College of Art, a world-leading art and design institution, the MRes programme encourages inter-disciplinary and cross-disciplinary research projects in collaboration with other Schools within the RCA and external partners. A uniquely interdisciplinary degree, the MRes is the first programme to be taught across all four schools of the RCA, offering training in practice and theory-led research methods for critical studies in art and design. Over a full-time year of study students work with, and learn from methods, practices and theories from Architecture, Arts and Humanities, Communication and Design.

This Master of Research is designed to provide early and mid-career art and design researchers with the intellectual, technical and professional tools with which to complete high-quality research projects, both at doctoral level and within the cultural and creative industries, working across traditional sociocultural, disciplinary and sectoral boundaries.

The RCA recognises a demand for a new type of graduate and a new type of research training, acknowledging that in the last decade research-led art and design practice has increased in importance, exploring new models of collaboration across disciplines and between academic and non-academic institutions. This ground-breaking research degree offering a critical investigation into the disciplines and future of art and design research.

We invite applications from prospective students from a wide range of academic backgrounds and professional experiences who want to join this investigation through an intensive one-year degree programme with taught elements leading to an independent research project.
