The Royal Academy Schools is an accredited, independent art school that offers the only three-year, full-time postgraduate fine art course in Europe.
The primary focus of the Schools is the professional education of the artist. The development of the art work of each student is supported through discussion and debate and students studying at the Schools are offered a diverse programme of lectures, artists’ talks, group critiques and tutorials given by contemporary artists, Royal Academicians, critics, writers and theorists.
The course is remarkable in its ability to address the individual needs of each student - the singularity of their work is supported in the practical, technical, critical and intellectual development of their practice.
Schools students work within a historic building which houses not only high, north-lit studios, but also the world-leading exhibitions of the Royal Academy, allowing Schools students unparalleled access to a changing array of art from all ages and continents.
The allocation of the small number of places available at the Schools is highly competitive. Selection is based upon evidence of an established practice and commitment, the ability and attitude to make an active contribution to the programme, and potential for further development across the three-years of the course.
