RCA Named UK’s Top Design SchoolMarch 14, 2017
The London institution, whose School of Design alumni include Thomas Heatherwick, Paul Cocksedge and Alexandra Daisy Ginsberg, beat American colleges MIT and Parsons to take the top spot as world's best art and design school in the seventh annual QS University Rankings.
It is the third consecutive year that the Royal College of Art has received this accolade, having come top of the rankings in both 2016 and 2015.
"We are delighted to be again recognised as the world's top university for art and design for the third year running, and to be consistently the only university selected since the art and design subject areas were added to the QS World Rankings in 2015," said rector Paul Thompson.
"The RCA is highly selective, taking only the most talented artists and designers. Those students go on to transform the world – in design, fine art, fashion and engineering."
