The RCA offers a portfolio of online and on-campus short courses and summer schools developed by leading academics and industry experts for designers.

Each year the courses attract a global mix of artists, critical thinkers, curators, writers, architects and interior designers from over 60 countries who wish to move their practice forward, either as a career change, professional development or skills refreshment.

Subjects include architecture, communication design, contemporary art, curating, interior design, service design, design thinking, creative leadership and human-centred design.

They reflect the college's unique studio-based learning philosophy with small class sizes, practical group work, rich interaction between students and academics, enhanced peer-to-peer networking and a certificate of achievement on completion.

Previous students that have completed RCA Short Courses have gone on to successfully apply to study on the graduate diploma and MA-level courses at the RCA.

"Not only do you learn how to create the best portfolio, you also learn how to shape your future around art. This was a priceless experience with the top professionals in the industry," said Art and Design Portfolio Development participant Sun hi Moon.

Applications to this course have now closed.
