  • 1st in the QS World University Rankings 2021 for Art & Design

The Royal College of Art was ranked first on a list of master's courses in fashion by Business of Fashion, a fashion website. Following the 2014 Research Excellence Framework, the College consolidated its position as the premier art and design institution in the UK. 77% of submitted research was classed as ‘world leading’ or ‘internationally excellent’, a 12-point increase on the 2008 results.

 My consultant was very helpful and motivating. She helped me every step of the way, even when the deadline was so close. I feel I could not have done it without her. I'd highly recommend this service to any and all of my many friends interested.
